The meeting is open to the public that have interest in the standards activities that establish consensus rules, guidelines or characteristics for activities or their results in the aerial platforms industry. Consensus (industry) standards are voluntarily used by manufactures, dealers, owners, users and operators of aerial platforms. The purpose of the standards is the prevention of accidents and injuries, as well as, to establish criteria for the manufacturers. The standards also aid the manufacturers, dealers, owners, users and operators of the platforms to understand their various responsibilities.
The A92 consensus body was created to develop safety guidelines for the design, construction, testing, maintenance, inspection, training, use and operation of elevating and rotating aerial devices, work platforms and vertical devices primarily used to position personnel.
For more information on how you or your company can get involved in the A92 committees, please contact A92 Liaison, DeAnna Martin at 816.595.4860 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
