JLG Launches Info Site For ANSI A92 Safety Standard Changes

November 29, 2017
ANSI A92 and CSA B354 standards govern the access equipment industry

Changes to the standards that govern the design and use of aerial work platforms are coming and JLG Industries is making available a variety of new resources to help owners, operators, and dealers better understand and comply with the anticipated changes to the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and the Canadian Standards Association (CSA).

The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) is expected to publish its new ANSI A92 standard in early 2018. The new Canadian Standards Association CSA B354 standard was published in May 2017.

One year from the date of publication any aerial machine manufactured in the United States must meet the new standard. Machines manufactured prior to that date will continue to be governed by the existing standard.

ANSI A92 and CSA B354 standards govern the access equipment industry and address machine design, safe use, and training in North America. As these standards are updated, equipment dealers, operators, and owners will need to make changes in the areas of training, job site safety, and machine selection. The anticipated changes will move North American manufactured machines more towards a global model.  

“JLG is working to inform and educate our customers on the impact the new standard will have on their fleets and within the daily operations of their businesses,” said Jennifer Stiansen, director of marketing. “To that end, we’ve developed a variety of resource materials we hope our customers will utilize as they prepare for the new standards.”

JLG's resource materials at https://www.jlg.com/en/destination/ansi include:

  • A downloadable Essential Guide to Understanding ANSI A92 and & CSA B354 Standards, including information about why the standards are changing and who the changing standards will impact.
  • Alerts from JLG regarding new developments that could affect equipment and training processes
  • New terminology and classifications for aerial work platforms, now called mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPs)
  • List of JLG-compliant equipment and training options to help meet updated requirements
