American National Standards Institute Approves Revised Standard
ANSI/SAIA A92.2-2015 for Vehicle-Mounted Elevating and Rotating Aerial Devices was approved by the ANSI Board of Standards Review on June 26, 2015. Conforming parties have until June 2016 to be compliant with the standard.
"Upon the publication of A92.2 2015, I want to take this opportunity to thank each of members of the ASC A92 Main Committee and members of A92.2 Sub-Committee for their efforts in the standards development process. In this instance we have achieved consensus after six years of thoughts, proposals meetings and vigorous debates. By our very process we recognize that standards are always a work in progress. However, at this point in time we have unanimously agreed that the proposed draft contains sufficient improvements to warrant its publication and the revision of A92.2 2009. This is a significant accomplishment in which we should take pride in our participation in these improvements in the interests of safety in our industry. Thank you again for your considerable passion and efforts!" Joshua Chard, Fellow ASC A92 Main Committee Member, Chair of A92.2 Sub-Committee.
