Spelled out in the updated ANSI A92 and CSA B354 standards, as well as the OSHA and OHS requirements, fall protection on mobile elevating work platform (MEWPs) is required in the United States and Canada. A $132,598 fine for a willful violation from OSHA should be enough to make most jobsites pay attention to these requirements. But, making sure that the men and women who operate MEWPs as part of their daily operation are safe, well-protected, and that they are able to go home at the end of the day in the same condition they were in when they left for work that morning, must be the number one priority.
