New ANSI Standards for 2019 - Time is Running Out

The new ANSI standards released in December 2018 affect all owners, operators and supervisors of aerial lifts including: booms, scissor lifts and under-bridge inspection machines. The new standards are designed to enhance safety and shift North American equipment standards closer to international standards - allowing companies and equipment manufacturers to be more competitive in the global marketplace.

The new standards place greater responsibility on the equipment user/owner regardless of whether they are a large maintenance operation or a small business that rents a scissor lift, boom lift, etc. for seasonal work. Employers, owners and operators must be in compliance by December 10, 2019

Don’t get caught off guard. Learn more about the new ANSI A92.22 standards for Safe Use and ANSI A92.24 standards for Training.

What distinguishes a scissor lift from other types of aerial lifts are the cross-crossing arms beneath the platform that open and close like scissors as they lift and lower. In fact, OSHA classifies scissor lifts not as aerial lifts, but as mobile scaffolds. That said, the OSHA guidelines for scissor lifts are similar to those for other types of aerial lifts.

This article covers different types of scissor lifts and how to choose the right scissor lift for your operation.
