ASC A92 Secretariat
For more than 35 years, the SAIA has been developing safety guides for the aerial platform industry. The Association is one of more than 220 ANSI-Accredited Standards Developers (ASC) that develop American National Standards. The SAIA serves as Secretariat for the A92 series of standards and is responsible for adhering to the policies and procedures outlined in the ANSI Essential Requirements, which govern the consensus development process.
On November 20, 2018, ANSI finalized and approved the much-anticipated new A92 suite of standards. The suite – which was published December 10, 2018, and will become effective March 1, 2020 – is now available for purchase in the SAIA Store. Three distinct performance-written standards comprise the suite:
ANSI/SAIA A92.20-2018: Design, Calculations, Safety Requirements and Test Methods for Mobile Elevating Work Platforms (MEWPs)
ANSI/SAIA A92.22-2018: Safe Use of Mobile Elevating Work Platforms (MEWPs)
ANSI/SAIA A92.24-2018: Training Requirements for the Use, Operation, Inspection, Testing and Maintenance of Mobile Elevating Work Platforms (MEWPs)
These new standards, which incorporate performance criteria rather than being product-specific, will replace the standards listed below that are currently in place:
- ANSI/SAIA A92.3-2006 (R2014) for Manually Propelled Elevating Aerial Platforms
ANSI/SAIA A92.5-2006 (R2014) for Boom-Supported Elevating Work Platforms
ANSI/SAIA A92.6-2006 (R2014) for Self-Propelled Elevating Work Platforms
ANSI/SAIA A92.8-2006 (R2011) for Vehicle-Mounted Bridge Inspection and Maintenance Devices
- ANSI/SAIA A92.2-2015 for Vehicle-Mounted Rotating and Elevating Work Platforms
ANSI/SAIA A92.7-2014 for Airline Ground Support Vehicle-Mounted Vertical Lift Devices
ANSI/SAIA A92.9-2011 (R2017) for Mast-Climbing Work Platforms
ANSI/SAIA A92.10-2009 (R2014) for Transport Platforms
