The proposed standards for Mobile Elevating Work Platforms (MEWPs) in the US and Canada are introducing new and broader changes that will impact all industry stakeholders. All will have 12 months after publication to become compliant. Canadian standards were published in May of 2017 and the US standards are anticipated for publication by year end. While the twelve month period from publication to effective date seems long, preparation is required. Planning sooner than later will get your business prepared and ready to address the potential impact of the proposed changes. The design standard will not only impact manufactures but also users of the equipment when mandatory platform load sensing is installed. Awareness of the broader and more detailed safe-use requirements that will impact users, supervisors, operators, and occupants of MEWPs is a starting point. The new training standard will provide clear and detailed requirements for training for operators and supervisors. Join this session to raise your awareness of key changes and begin your planning to meet these new requirements.
