  • Title: AEM | Newsroom - News Releases -- Industry organizations address Aerial Work Platform (AWP) Personal Fall Protection (PFP) safety education
    Descriptive info: Industry organizations address Aerial Work Platform (AWP) Personal Fall Protection (PFP) safety education.. (Feb.. 28, 2011) Las Vegas The American Rental Association (ARA), the Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM), the Associated Equipment Distributors (AED), the International Powered Access Federation (IPAF) and the Scaffold Industry Association (SIA) have once again joined forces to develop a new educational document which focuses on Personal Fall Protection for users of AWP equipment.. The result of this joint venture is the Statement of Best Practices of Personal Fall Protection Systems for Aerial Work Platform Equipment.. A previous document, Statement of Best Practices of General Training and Familiarization for Aerial Work Platform Equipment, was introduced to the industry in February 2010.. The participating organizations recognized a need to address the proper use and regulatory compliance of AWP personal fall protection and created a common resource to educate users on best practices for the safe use of PFP equipment.. The use of PFP is a component of AWP training and has legal requirements in the United States, and federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations and American National Standards Institute (ANSI) standards both address fall protection when using AWP equipment.. The objectives of this best practices document are intended to:.. Educate the industry on applicable OSHA regulations and the industry-recognized and -supported ANSI standards.. Provide information to assist users and operators during their selection process to identify the most appropriate personal fall protection system for their job functions while operating AWP equipment.. Inform the user and operator how to recognize and guard against the potential fall hazards associated with the use of AWP equipment.. Encourage the incorporation of best practices for personal fall protection with AWP equipment into a company s fall protection plans.. The Statement of Best Practices of Personal Fall Protection Systems for Aerial Work Platform Equipment document was unveiled by the participating organizations during The Rental Show, the ARA s convention and trade show, Feb.. 28, 2011 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas.. An educational session entitled: "AWP Training: Fall Protection" is scheduled from 8-9:30 a.. m.. , Wednesday, March 2, at The Rental Show..

"ARA and ARA Insurance Services have identified the importance of aerial work platform safety for ARA members and the equipment rental industry.. AWP equipment can be in the inventory of any segment of rental business and is in the fleets of many ARA members.. It is a priority for ARA to provide this safety information to strengthen their AWP business practices.. Due to this collaboration, ARA can provide quality information to our membership that is accepted and recognized by all stakeholders throughout the industry.. ".. Christine L..

Dennis Slater, president.. Association of Equipment Manufacturers.. "In line with OSHA and ANSI requirements, IPAF has been campaigning for over 10 years for full body harnesses to be used on boom type platforms to prevent the possibility of operators being catapulted from the basket..
