ANSI/SAIA Update A92.22-2018

Posted: Jan 27, 2020

ANSI in conjunction with the SAIA (Scaffold & Access Industry Association) recently updated their standard A92.22-2018. One of the biggest changes was the addition of this section/statement: “6.2.3 Supervisor Training – All personnel that directly supervise Mobile Elevated Work Platforms (MEWPs) operators shall receive training. Users shall ensure personnel that directly supervise MEWP operators are trained as defined in ANSI A92.24 Section 7.5.” This is not only a best practice, but an industry recognized hazard that supervisors should at least have the same level of training as operators.

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration announced in the Federal Register on December 27, 2019, that the minimum annual percentage rate for random drug testing will increase from 25% of the average number of driver positions to 50% of the average number of driver positions. This change, which becomes effective January 1, 2020, is pursuant to requirements found in 49 CFR 382.305. The minimum annual percentage rate for random alcohol testing will remain at 10%.

FMSCA regulations apply to any employees that operate (drives) a Commercial Motor Vehicle (CMV) with a gross vehicle weight rating over 26,011 pounds, a vehicle designed to transport 16 or more occupants (including the driver), or any vehicle that is used in the transportation of hazardous materials that requires the vehicle to be placarded.
