ANSI Lift Training Classroom/Supervisor Portion

The Building Trades Employers’ Association (BTEA) and Massachusetts Construction Advancement Program (MCAP) will be offering a Lift Training Webinar in conjunction with Contractor’s Risk Management (CRM).

During this ANSI compliant training, participants will learn how to use a personal fall arrest system, calculate load capacities, understand vehicle limitations and stability, and perform inspections on an aerial boom lift, scissor lift and an aerial platform. Participants will understand the hazards associated with aerial lifts and the safety precautions necessary to avoid injury.

This training will consist of only the classroom portion of the lift training. This is enough to satisfy ANSI requirements for supervisors, however, lift occupants also require a hands-on training on using the type of lift specific to their needs.

Reasonable Suspicion Training

The Building Trades Employers’ Association (BTEA) and Massachusetts Construction Advancement Program (MCAP) will be offering contributing contractors Reasonable Suspicion Training for their employees. Modern Assistance Programs (MAP) is one of the premier employee assistance plans for the union trades in New England.

After completing this course, participants will be able to:
• Describe the regulations that apply to reasonable suspicion testing, including the alcohol and drug prohibitions

New ANSI Lift Standards Training

Wait List Only

Join Eric Stalmon, VP of Safety and Training for the Marr Companies for classroom and hands-on training which satisfies the new ANSI A92.22 lift standards for operators and supervisors.

The new ANSI Standards are effective March 1, 2020 are you ready?

ANSI standards released in late 2018 which were originally to become effective on December 10, 2019 will now be delayed until March 1, 2020.

The changes include renaming Aerial Work Platforms (AWPs) to Mobile Elevating Work Platforms (MEWPs). Rather than being classified by the equipment type, machines are now broken up by Groups, then sub-divided into Types.

In addition, the new standards place greater responsibility on the equipment user regardless of whether they are a large maintenance operation or a small business that rents a scissor lift, boom lift, etc.

ANSI Standard A92.22 requires all MEWP users to develop a risk assessment and site safety plan, which must be shared with everyone on the work site. ANSI Standard A92.94 now requires training for occupants and supervisors of aerial equipment.

The requirements do not have the force of law as enforced by OSHA, but do present a liability issue for contractors who choose not to follow the most up to date safety standards.

Please email Jeanne Tempesta at jtempesta@btea.com to be added to the wait list for this or future lift trainings.
