Self-Propelled Elevating Work Platforms
|Publication Date:||20 November 2006|
Equipment Covered. This standard applies to self-propelled integral chassis aerial platforms having a platform that cannot 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 (see Figure 1 for examples on page 36).
Effective Dates. The Standard will become effective May 20, 2007 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.
(2) Rebuild/recondition requirements. Rebuilt/reconditione
(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.
Equipment Not Covered.
(1) Ladder and ladder stands such as those covered in American National Standards for Ladder and Ladder Stands, ANSI A14 series.
(2) Scaffolding such as those covered in American National Standard for Construction and Demolition Operations Scaffolding Safety Requirements, ANSI A10.8-1988.
(3) Vehicle and trailer-mounted elevating and rotating aerial platforms such as those covered in American National Standard for Vehicle-Mounted Elevating and Rotating Aerial Devices, ANSI/SAIA A92.2- 2009.
(4) Non self-propelled elevating aerial platforms such as those covered in American National Standard for Manually-Propelled Elevating Aerial Platforms, ANSI/SAIA A92.3-2006 (R2014).
(5) Self-propelled elevating aerial platforms such as those covered in American National Standard for Boom-Supported Elevating Work Platforms, ANSI/SAIA A92.5-2006 (R2014).
(6) Vehicle-mounted vertical lift devices such as those covered in American National Standard for Airline Ground Supported Vehicle-Mounted Vertical Lifts, ANSI/ SAIA A92.7-2014.
(7) Vehicle-Mounted Bridge Inspection and Maintenance Devices, ANSI/SAIA A92.8- 2012.
(8) Mast Climbing Work Platforms, ANSI/SAIA A92.9- 2011.
(9) Suspended powered platforms for exterior building maintenance, ANSI A120.1-1996.
(10) Vertically adjustable equipment used primarily to raise and lower materials and equipment from one elevation to another such as American National Standards in the A17, B30 and B56 series.
(11) Fire-fighting equipment such as that covered in American National Standard for Automotive Fire Apparatus, ANSI/NFPA 1901-1991.
(12) Construction and demolition operation digger derricks such as those covered in American National Standard for Construction and Demolition Safety Requirements, Definitions and Specifications, ANSI A 10.31-1995.
(13) An attachment or device which is intended to convert a non-self-propelled elevating aerial platform to a self-propelled elevating aerial platform, unless the resulting elevating aerial platform is within the scope of equipment covered as defined in 1.1.1 of this standard.
Purpose. This standard applies to self-propelled elevating aerial platforms to achieve the following objectives:
(1) Prevention of accidents and personal injuries.
(2) Establishment of criteria for design, manufacture,
(3) Establishment and understanding by designers, manufacturers, dealers, owners, users, operators, lessors, lessees and brokers of their respective responsibilities.
Application. The rapid development of a wide
variety of self-propelled elevating aerial platform designs
necessitates the establishment of standards for their design,
manufacture, (remanufacture), rebuild/recondition,
