Working With Mobile Elevating Work Platforms – Do I Need Training?

What are Mobile Elevating Work Platforms or MEWPs?

Mobile Elevating Work Platforms (MEWPs) are machines/devices designed to move workers, tools, and materials to work height. These types of machines/devices can include “Boom Lifts,” “Aerial Lifts,” or “Scissor Lifts.”

What’s New?

According to ANSI A92.24, aerial lift operators are required to have documented training such as a certificate of completion or certification card. 

Do I Need Training?

The new ANSI standard also changes the definition of who qualifies as an “operator” and who is simply working around/in the vicinity of a lift. While those working in and around MEWPs should have “Familiarization” or Awareness Training, anyone that will be working on a MEWP should have successfully completed Operator Training and earned their certification card.
