ANSI A92 and CSA B354 standards govern the access equipment industry and address machine design, safe use and training in North America.

JLG Industries Inc. is equipping its customers with a variety of new resources to help them better understand and comply with the anticipated changes to the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and the Canadian Standards Association (CSA).

ANSI A92 and CSA B354 standards govern the access equipment industry and address machine design, safe use and training in North America. As these standards are updated, equipment dealers, operators and owners will need to make changes in the areas of training, job site safety and machine selection. The anticipated changes will move North American manufactured machines more towards a global model.  

“As the Access Industry leader, JLG is working to inform and educate our customers on the impact the new standard will have on their fleets and within the daily operations of their businesses,” said Jennifer Stiansen, director of marketing, JLG Industries Inc. “To that end, we've developed a variety of resource materials we hope our customers will utilize as they prepare for the new standards.”

These resource materials include:

  • A downloadable Essential Guide to Understanding ANSI A92 and a CSA B354 Standards, including information about why the standards are changing and who the changing standards will impact.
  • The opportunity to sign up for alerts from JLG regarding new developments that could affect equipment and training processes
  • New terminology and classifications for aerial work platforms, now called mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPs)
  • List of JLG-compliant equipment and training options to help customers meet updated requirements
  • The new ANSI A92 standard is expected to be published in early 2018. One year from the date of publication any aerial machine manufactured in the United States must meet the new standard. Machines manufactured prior to that date will continue to be governed by the existing standard. The new CSA B354 standard was published in May 2017.

    JLG is encouraging its customers to take advantage of these new resources to better understand and prepare for the upcoming changes.
