A major addition to the new ANSI standards that went into effect on June 1, 2020 is the requirement that the user must ensure that all personnel that directly supervise MEWPs operators are trained in the following areas:
- proper selection of the correct MEWPs for the work to be performed;
- the rules regulations and standards that apply to MEWPs, including the provisions for safe use as defined in ANSI A92.22, training and familiarization, and the work being performed;
- potential hazards associated with use of MEWPs and the means to protect against identified hazards;
- knowledge that the manufacturer’s operating manual(s) are an integral part of the equipment and need to be stored properly in the weather-resistant compartment on the MEWPs.
This online training class satisfies each of the requirements listed above for MEWP supervisor training.
