COURSE DESCRIPTION

Our Mobile Elevated Work Platform (M.E.W.P.) course curriculum

combines a plethora of training, such as formal instruction, practical

training and learning, and assessing the operator's performance in the workplace and with equipment. 

Under the ANSI A92 standards, MEWPs are classified differently and are divided into the following groups:

- Group A for those with platforms that move vertically but stay inside the tipping line.

- Group B for all other MEWPs – typically, boom-type equipment where the platform extends past the tipping line.

 

Within each of these groups, machines are separated into types:

- Type 1 for those that travel only in the stowed position.

- Type 2 for those that can travel while elevated but controlled from    the chassis.

- Type 3 for those that can travel while elevated but controlled from    the work platform.

 

Machine owners and operators will have their own responsibilities when it comes to safe use and training. Operators must meet all new training requirements, participate in extensive planning to consider machine choice and application, and perform site risk assessments for all MEWP operations and training procedures.

BOOM LIFT SCISSOR LIFT TRAINING

Operators must be properly trained to safely use equipment to minimize the risk of injuries, property damage, and worksite liability.

The new ANSI A92 standards were developed to promote efficiency and safe use of Mobile Elevated Work Platforms, formally known as aerial work platforms. 

Anyone qualified under the current standards will not be qualified under the new ANSI A92 standards until they undergo additional training. 

The deadline to meet ANSI A92 standards was June 1, 2020.

Let's get your team trained.

Fast Line Safety Training is proudly partnered with EPRO Safety Solutions to deliver high-quality, hands-on training at your location. WE COME TO YOU!

BE ADVISED: Boom Lift/Scissor Lift (MEWP) training must consist of both a classroom and hands-on portion to comply with the new ANSI A92 standards; online trainings are not compliant.
