Employers, owners and operators are now required to comply with ANSI’s new A92 standards for mobile elevated work platforms (MWEP). NECA's Guide to Aerial Lifts is a jobsite guide designed to assist members in complying with ANSI MEWP equipment and training requirements. ANSI/SAIA A92.22-2018 Standard for Safe Use of Mobile Elevating Work Platforms (MEWPs) addresses the design of new aerial lift equipment and ANSI-SAIA A92.24-2018 Standard for Training Requirements for the Use, Operation, Inspection, Testing and Maintenance of Mobile Elevating Work Platforms (MEWPs) provides an overview of required training for operators, supervisors and maintenance personnel.

What is an Aerial Lift? 

Aerial lifts are so common in the electrical construction industry that a description or definition may not seem warranted. However, to understand applicable regulations and the scope of what is included, it is necessary to review both the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and American National Standard Institute (ANSI) definitions and descriptions. 

OSHA describes aerial lifts as: 

  • Any vehicle-mounted device used to elevate personnel 
  • Work platform that can move vertically and/or horizontally 
Printed on weatherized and tear resistant paper, this handy guide is perfect for use on the jobsite or for your company's safety briefings.
