Lifting Equipment Opinions

[HSE regulations]

Genie - Terex AWP April 19, 2017 Scott Owyen, training manager for Genie, a OSHA Hoisting and rigging safety part of the Terex Aerial Work Platforms (AWP) business segment, will address audiences at the 2017 AEM Product Safety and Compliance Seminar, April 24-27, in Cincinnati, OH, and at the 17th annual Upper Peninsula Safety Conference, April 28, in Escanaba, MI. Owyen will discuss how the changes to the ANSI A92 and CSA B354 standards in North America will impact equipment manufacturers, owners and users. With the changes to the ANSI and CSA standards, there is a need for education in the aerial market about the implications of the new standards, as well as how they will work with current industry regulations. The new standards will be based on current ISO standards which also makes them very similar to the current European EN280 and several other standards worldwide, says Owyen. The changes affect how products are referenced in North America, as well as how subjects such as design, safe use and training are covered. The new suite of standards includes changes in design such as platform load weighing and, for users and operators, requirements to perform jobsite safe use planning and risk assessments. It is important for the industry, as a whole, to start preparing now for what will be different. Owyens presentations at the 2017 AEM Product Safety & Compliance Seminar and the Upper Peninsula Safety Conference will cover topics such as: How the ANSI A92 and CSA B354 standards in North America are changing and why Industry topics on aerial work platform safety Why proper training is critical from a legal standpoint as well as a practical standpoint Methods to improve jobsite safety Available training options To make safety a top priority on jobsites, the first step is to make people aware how important training is to the wellbeing of the operator and the productivity of the machine, says Owyen. Many aerial jobsite accidents or equipment damage occurs when operators overlook important safety precautions or dont fully understand how to operate equipment. At Genie, our number one priority is to promote a safe workplace for both the operators and the equipment on every jobsite. What we have realized at Genie in the last few years is that there is a lot of misunderstandings and misconceptions about training, and the goal with our participation at events like the 2017 AEM Product Safety and Compliance Seminar and Upper Peninsula Safety Conference is to educate the aerial industry on the most current best practices for safe work at height.

The industry group Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America said that when it comes to accessing experimental drugs, the FDA should stay involved. Because investigational medicines have not been approved by the FDA and determined to be safe and effective, FDA must approve expanded access to an investigational drug before a biopharmaceutical company can provide it to a patient, said spokeswoman Caitlin Carroll in an email. Any legislation should protect the integrity of clinical trials and the FDA oversight of expanded access to maintain the best interests of patients. Theres no estimate on how many Californians the new law will affect. Its expected to be popular among ALS patients, who typically have two to five years to live post-diagnosis. Only one FDA-approved medication is available for ALS, which can slow but not stop the disease as it shuts down the motor neurons that communicate with muscles. The law could also help people with other disorders, including Duchenne muscular dystrophy and spinal muscular atrophy. Multiple medical groups have spoken out against the legislation, arguing that it exposes patients to additional risk without any means of accountability. Don Nielsen, director of government relations for the California Nurses Association, said hes concerned that patients will become guinea pigs for the pharmaceutical industry. The reason no one in the process wants the liability is because (the drugs) havent yet been tested, Nielsen said. Its potentially a very unsafe situation for a patient.
