scope:

This International Standard provides methods for preparing training materials and administering standardized training to operators (drivers) of mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPs).

It is applicable to MEWPs, as defined in ISO 16368, intended to move persons, tools and materials to positions where they can carry out work from the work platform.

NOTE National or other regulations, which could be more stringent, can apply.

1DV.1 Modify Clause 1 by replacing the title with "Scope, purpose, and application".

1DV.2 Modify Clause 1 by adding the following:

Within this Standard, where ISO 16368 is referenced, CAN/CSA-B354.6 will be considered to meet the intent of ISO 16368.

Within this Standard, where ISO 18893 is referenced, CAN/CSA-B354.7 will be considered to meet the intent of ISO 18893.

DV Add the following subclause to Clause 1:

Equipment classifications

MEWP classifications are made up of a MEWP group (platform location in reference to tipping line) with an associated MEWP type (reference to travelling).

NOTE See definitions for groups and types.

DV Add the following subclause to Clause 1:

Purpose

This Standard provides methods and guidelines to prepare MEWP training materials, define administration criteria and the elements required to deliver training, and familiarization to achieve the following objectives:

a) prevention of personal injuries and accidents; and

b) thorough and consistent training.

DV Add the following subclause to Clause 1:

Application

All provisions of this Standard apply to both new and existing MEWPs as defined in CAN/CSA-B354.1, CAN/CSA-B354.2, CAN/CSA-B354.4, and CAN/CSA-B354.6.

DV Add the following subclause to Clause 1:

Terminology for Canadian deviations

In this Standard, "shall" is used to express a requirement, i.e., a provision that the user is obliged to satisfy in order to comply with the standard; "should" is used to express a recommendation or that which is advised but not required; and "may" is used to express an option or that which is permissible within the limits of the standard.

Notes accompanying clauses do not include requirements or alternative requirements; the purpose of a note accompanying a clause is to separate from the text explanatory or informative material.

Notes to tables and figures are considered part of the table or figure and may be written as requirements.

Annexes are designated normative (mandatory) or informative (non-mandatory) to define their application.
