Aerial Lift (Mobile Elevating Work Platform) Safety

Aerial Lift (Mobile Elevating Work Platform) Safety

COURSE DESCRIPTION:

In this course we will review the OSHA regulations as they relate to the basic safety and management of various aerial lifts in the workplace. Aerial lifts are now referred to as mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPs) and is a term that covers a wide range of different devices you may encounter at a manufacturing facility or on a construction site. MEWPs have been rapidly replacing more traditional methods of working at different heights over the last 15 to 20 years. They provide many advantages over traditional ladders, hoists, and fixed scaffolding. Because they are motorized and don’t require many hours of set up, most businesses will have at least one MEWP in use at any given time. Your safety depends on your proper use and maintenance of these important devices.

REGULATORY REFERENCE:

29 CFR 1910 Subpart F
29 CFR 1926 Subpart L
ANSI/SAIA A92.22
ANSI/SAIA A92.24

APPROXIMATE DURATION:

30 Minutes
