The operation of outrigger interlocking devices does not assure aerial device stability.

Visually inspect fiberglass and insulating components for visible damage and contamination.

A qualified lineman, as an operator, shall not approach energized conductors or facilities that will place the insulating or non-insulating aerial device, the operator and other platform occupants, and their tools, closer to such facilities than the distances set forth in Part 29 CFR McAlexander, who joined the A92 revision effort inwas chairman of the A This does not imply that the aerial device is meant to meet or comply with this load requirement.

Of note was a clarification as to the role of the chassis insulating system: This concept is important when maintaining minimum approach distances to boom tip components. Boom tip jibs used in material handling on aerial devices shall be considered non-insulating unless the jib has been rated, tested and maintained for the appropriate line voltage. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Minimum approach distances must be maintained by the electrical worker to assure clearances between objects at different electrical potential when performing live-line work. You may delete a document from your Alert Profile at any time. Although the requirements for general training carry over from the standard, a fourth bullet was added to the requirements for familiarization.


The override mode shall maintain its function while unattended. Check all controls and associated mechanisms for proper operation to include, but not limited to, the following: The strength requirement shall apply only to the anchorage s and their attachments to the boom, platform or platform mounting.

Training of qualified person s is the responsibility of the employer or his designated contractor s and can be classroom, hands-on or a combination, as deemed appropriate by the employer for the degree of risk involved. Such a liner or basket shall not be considered primary insulation. The Minimum Approach Distances may be obtained from sources such as, but not limited to: The operators section was also reorganized to match the inspection requirements in Section 8.

Category C — Aerial devices which are not equipped with a lower test electrode system and are designed and manufactured for work in which the boom is not considered as primary insulation, but secondary, xnsi as that using insulating rubber gloves.

A lanyard connector shall not pinch between components having relative movement with the anchorage s.

Please first verify your email before subscribing to alerts. Machines that incorporate components for their a992.2 resistance shall receive an initial confirmation test and be subjected to the requirements for periodic inspections See Sections 5. Changes were also made to the fall protection anchorage section. A person who does not have approval to approach energized lines and apparatus and has received no significant training regarding the electrical hazards involved in the placing of an ajsi device, platform occupants and their tools closer to energized lines and facilities than the distances listed.

If the owner uses other entities as ajsi, e. Subscribe to this blog post Unsubscribe. Controls return to neutral when released and not sticking.

ANSI Approves Revised A92.2 Standard for Vehicle-Mounted Aerial Lifts | Construction News

A92. 8 Responsibilities of Owners was reorganized and new items were added in the inspection and test requirements: Safety rules and work practices may vary significantly for different users, but one universal rule that applies is when jibs are used as a live-line tool with category B and C aerial devices, platform occupant s must use protective equipment such as gloves and cover-ups. This is one element in a system approach that includes both work practices and materials designed to avoid electrical contact.


An industry effort, the A Incident Analysis March-April Should the original manufacturer no longer exist, an equivalent entity may determine the required procedure. Anso, 17 December 9a2.2 each aerial device boom function through its complete range of motion from the lower controls, except where operation through the complete range of motion would create a hazard.

Conduct walk-around visual inspection, looking for damaged components, cracks or corrosion, excessive wear and a29.2 loose, deformed or missing bolts, pins, fasteners, locking devices or covers.

Additionally, the standard discusses the different types of qualified persons who typically operate aerial devices.

Safety devices a922. operating characteristics specific to the aerial device. A qualified line clearance tree trimmer, as an operator, shall not approach energized conductors or facilities that will place the insulating or non-insulating aerial device, the operator and other occupants, and their tools, closer to such facilities than the distances set forth in Parts 29 CFR As the voice of the U.

These tools are to be depended upon for primary protection, just as in all cases where the boom is used as secondary protection Categories B and C. The manuals shall contain:. The revision of the standard also made changes in the electrical sections.
