Boom-Supported Elevating Work Platforms
|Publication Date:||28 February 2006|
Equipment Covered. This standard applies to self-propelled integral chassis aerial platforms having a platform that can be positioned completely beyond the base and are used to position personnel, along with their necessary tools and materials, at work locations. Aerial platforms are power operated with primary functions, including drive, controlled from the platform. Such aerial platforms are intended to be occupied when driven. (See Figure 1 on Page 28).
Effective Dates. The standard is effective August 28, 2006 as follows:
(1) Design, manufacture and remanufacture requirements. The design and manufacturing requirements of this standard will apply to all aerial platforms manufactured on or after the effective date. Aerial platforms remanufactured on or after the effective date of this standard shall comply with the requirements of this standard.
(3) Responsibilities for dealers, owners, users, operators, lessors, lessees and brokers. All provisions detailed for dealers, owners, users, operators, lessors, lessees and brokers apply to both new and existing units delivered by sale, lease, rental or any form of beneficial use on or after the effective date.
