Latest Revision



This Standard is intended to be used in conjunction ANSI/SAIA A92.22-2020, Safe Use of MEWPs and ANSI/SAIA A92.24-2018, Training Requirements for Operators of MEWPs. This American National Standard specifies safety requirements and preventive measures, and the means for their verification, for certain types and sizes of mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPs) intended to position personnel, along with their necessary tools and materials, at work locations. It contains the structural design calculations and stability criteria, construction, safety examinations and tests that shall be applied before a MEWP is first put into service.

The SAIA recently eliminated 3 standards and replaced them with the three following standards.

* A92.20 covers the design of mobile elevating work platforms

* A92.22 covers the operation of mobile elevating work platforms

* A92.24 covers the training for mobile elevating work platforms
