Mobile Elevated Work Platforms/Arial Lifts and Bucket Trucks

Aerial Lift platforms such as boom lifts, stock pickers, and scissor lifts are called Mobile Elevated Work Platforms or MEWP. MEWP’s can be found on a variety of work sites. Yes, MEWP are covered under OSHA Regulation 1926.453 and ANSI/SAIA A92.22 & A92.24 regulations. The devices are often used in place of ladders and scaffolds as they provide easier and safer access to elevated areas on worksites. Unfortunately, with the use of such devices, injuries and deaths occur. It is vital that all workers using these devices receive comprehensive training to ensure their safety and the safety of those around them.

MEWP training is divided into three different training programs with the classroom specifically covering the ANSI Training Requirements Standard ANSI 92.24. In that training program we state the requirements for the theory setting and the requirements for the practical/hands-on training. The provided manual which includes a MEWP Operator Assessment Form is used to assess not only the theory/classroom training but also the hands-on operator training. Our programs run between 4 to 6 hours long to cover both classroom and hands on sections, as well as testing knowledge and skills. While we try to cover much of each standard or regulation it is impossible to address every section/detail of every regulation, but we will customize to your organization.
