Mobile Elevated Work Platforms (MEWPs) is a new standard designed to improve and enhance safety equipment standards to be similar to the international standards. This creates more competition in the global marketplace when providing for companies and equipment manufacturers.
Understanding the new ANSI A92 Mobile Elevated Work Platforms (MEWP'S) standards and classifications. Aerial work platforms are now known as mobile elevating work platforms (MEWP).
Machines will now be broken up into groups instead of being classified for equipment type. If a mobile elevated work platform is able to maneuver past the tipping lines it is considered a group B.
Type 1 work platform can be driven when the platform is not elevated. Type 2 is when equipment can be driven elevated but operated from the chassis. Type 3 allows the operator to control the work platform when elevated.
Group A, Type 3 MEWP Stock-Pickers and Electric Scissor Lifts
Both considered a Group A platform because they never extend beyond the wheels or tipping point line and the lift is able to be operated from the platform.
Group B Type 3 MEWP Boom Lifts
An aerial lift platform that extends beyond the wheels or tipping point and can be operated while on the elevated work platform is considered a Group B.
Develop a risk assessment and site safety plan. For both companies and full-time owners who now and then rent aerial lift equipment must have a plan documented and shared with everyone on the worksite.
Risk Assessment and safety plan include:
These plans must be shared with all workers at the workplace or job site and should add these to the company training manual:
Mandatory documented training remains for aerial equipment operators. Occupants and supervisors are now required by the new standard.
