MIOSH's Aerial Work Platform (APW) regulations in Part 58 provide significant changes covering operator training, issuance of employee permits prior to operation, equipment inspections, and fall protection. The regulations also expand employer and employee responsibilities to include a requirement to provide training by a qualified person. These regulations require that:
• Employers provide each employee who will operate an AWP defined instructions, given by a qualified person on four defined areas listed in the regulation;
• Detailed permitting requirements; Permits are valid for three years and only valid for the employer who issued the permit; and the manufacturer's operating instructions and safety rules must be provided and maintained on the site.
This regulation requires AWP operator training and a permit must be carried by the trained operator and/or be available at the jobsite and displayed when requested by a MIOSHA representative. A citation may be issued for lack of training even if no serious accident occurs.
The standard requires the operator to perform a pre-start inspection before use on each shift, which includes a visual inspection, function testing of platform and ground controls, and a workplace inspection before and during use of the AWP. The regulation also requires the employer to comply with requirements to inspect and maintain each aerial work platform in accordance with the manufacturer's operating or maintenance and repair manuals. All repairs are to be made by an authorized person.
This training will provide the classroom operator training and review the other employee/employer requirements in Part 58 and a review of the ANSI A 92.2-2010 standard associated with Aerial Equipment. Program includes a demonstration of safe Aerial operation and a mock vehicle/equipment inspection, per State requirements.
MIOSHA test and permit templates will be provided to all attendees Please note that participants of this workshop will not be issued a permit and resources will be provided for training, that includes mandatory physical participation in the operation of an AWP.Permits must be issued and signed by the employer.
