For dealers and rental companies: The new requirements for safe use and training are of particular importance to dealers and rental companies for at least three reasons: Like all equipment, mobile aerial work platforms (aerial work platforms) must be maintained regularly, preventively, in order to maintain optimal performance. Ensuring that a work platform lift receives the maintenance it needs is important not only for safety, but also for performance. Requirements are now organized by “task” rather than “responsible party”, meaning that a particular user/operator must review their responsibilities for each of these tasks, rather than referring to a single combined statement of that party`s responsibilities. Several changes to the design of the lifting work platform involving load and inclination measurement, wind speed, entrance doors, platform railings, tires and machine marking resulted from the new ANSI 92.20 standards. For each component added to the machine after purchase, it must continue to meet new ANSI standards and OEM requirements. For example, replacing a door that is fully ANSI compliant with a chain door on a new ANSI 92.20 roller scissor lift is an unauthorized product change and renders the machine non-compliant. Hi Anthony, sorry for the late reply. According to the new ANSI standards, training must be provided by a qualified person who has experience in the special classification of EWPs and who is familiar with laws, regulations, safe use practices, manufacturer`s requirements, and the identification and prevention of MAWP hazards. A qualified person is defined as “a person who, through the possession of a recognized diploma, certificate or professional status, or through extensive knowledge, education and experience, has successfully demonstrated the ability to solve or solve problems related to the subject, work or project.” To answer your question (just our opinion), if your trainer meets the definition of a qualified person, then he should be good at doing the training. I think you need more than just one of your employees to sign the training for everyone. Your coach may need additional training.
If you think they are qualified to train based on the information in the new ANSI standard, they don`t need the extra training. Nevertheless, training is always a good idea and for some subjects, sometimes even refresher training is necessary. Strengthening safety and health training is beneficial for the company and its employees. Regular inspections of aerial work platforms, preventive maintenance and ongoing training improve the safety of operators and workers while increasing the availability of equipment fleets. Work with OEMs to understand best practices and develop a plan to optimize fleet health and utilization to reduce the total cost of ownership of aerial work platforms over the life of the equipment. MEPP maintenance is important to comply with regulations and maximize the functionality and safety of equipment. To comply with LOLER 1998 and PUWER 1998, have access devices thoroughly tested and inspected by a qualified inspector or engineer at regular intervals. In addition, the keeping of a record of the lifting platform, as provided by the manufacturer, must indicate the date of the last annual inspection and the interval at which inspections are required. This registration is the responsibility of all device owners and helps you track your maintenance needs.
Performing regular maintenance checks and preventive maintenance improves uptime and ensures your equipment is ready for lease, protects your investment and residual value, and improves your return on investment (rROIC). In this blog, we have compiled a quick guide to mandatory maintenance and inspection procedures for aerial work platforms in the UK. The occupants are all the people on the work platform. The prerequisite is NOT training, but an integration guide. A92.22 (Safe Use), Section 6.2.2 Knowledge of Occupants The user must ensure that the PMTCT operator gives instructions or ensures that all occupants have the basic knowledge necessary to work safely on PMTCT. The knowledge of the occupants shall comply with clause 7.4 of ANSI A92.24. A92.24 (Training) Section 7.4 Knowledge of Occupants The PMTCT operator must give instructions or ensure that all occupants have the basic knowledge necessary to work safely on PMTCT. This instruction should also provide at least one occupant with the knowledge to operate the controls in an emergency when the operator is unable to do so. This instruction does not give the occupant permission to operate the controls at any time, except in an emergency.
NOTE: The requirements of item (f) should only be communicated to at least one other resident. The reason for this change was the objection to the requirement that the Accountability Manual be affixed to each MEPP and that amendments or additions to an MEPP can only be made with the approval of the manufacturer. The ANSI Standards Review Board`s decision regarding appeals resulted in some revisions to language that violated ANSI`s Terms and Conditions Policy. Hello, Our training programs are designed to be used for the theoretical/face-to-face part of the training. Our MEWP training is divided into three different training programs, with the “Training” kit specifically covering ANSI 92.24 on ANSI training requirements. In this training program, we specify requirements for theory establishment and requirements for practical/practical training. The training packages include a manual that includes a PEMP operator evaluation form that allows employers to evaluate not only theoretical or classroom training, but also practical operator training. Our programs last between 15 and 25 minutes. While we try to cover a large portion of every standard or regulation, it`s impossible to address every section/detail of every regulation without it being a three- or four-hour video. As you know, such a long training video would not be very effective. We are happy to email you a copy of the program plans for review, so you know exactly what is covered in each training program. Just send an email to email@example.com and ask for the MEWP outline.
And you can also preview the videos in their entirety on each topic page. Just scroll through each page and you`ll find the preview. I hope this information has been helpful to you. www.osha-safety-training.net/product/aerial-and-scissor-lifts-mewp-safe-use/ www.osha-safety-training.net/product/mewp-training-requirements/ www.osha-safety-training.net/product/aerial-devices/ All new aerial work platforms must now be designed more safely. New safety features include load and tilt detection, tire pneumatic stability testing, outdoor wind power requirements, foot panels on all platform areas, inflexible entrance doors, higher platform guardrails, and continuous unintentional operational controls. Operators should familiarize themselves with the MEPs used and be trained in the new safety features before they are used. Existing equipment does not need to be upgraded to meet new design requirements. Therefore, it is important that all employees are aware of the differences between the different lifting platforms in the company and receive appropriate training on both if necessary. Training: instruction that enables the trainee to become a qualified person in relation to the task to be performed, including knowledge of possible hazards. Retraining: An instruction required based on user observations or ratings to maintain the status of an already trained person as a qualified operator.
