MEWP (Aerial) Occupant
MEWP or Mobile Elevating Work Platforms are the new name for aerial lift equipment. Boom lifts, scissor lifts, bucket trucks, forklift work platforms are all now classified under the new ANSI Standards A92.22 & A92.24 effective in 2020.
With this new standard; ALL OCCUPANTS or PASSENGERS must have basic familiarization training and be show how to use the lift controls to lower the lift if the operator becomes incapacitated.
This is a general MEWP occupant familiarization class where students will review general MEWP safety, fall protection and a basic emergency lowering review. Occupants will still need to be shown how to lower the specific lift they will be riding in.
