Genie – Terex AWP April 19, 2017 Scott Owyen, training manager for Genie, a 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 winches 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.

Four people were injured in the crash. Two were taken to Yeovil District Hospital and two were treated at the scene. A spokesman for Avon and Somerset Constabulary said: “We were called OSHA regulations to a report of a road traffic collision involving two vehicles outside Lidl in Lysander Road at about 11.20am. “One man was released from a vehicle on fire.” A spokesman for Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue said: “The fire service were called to assist other agencies with a road traffic collision where persons were trapped. One crew from Yeovil attended. “The collision involved two vehicles that had collided with the central reservation. “The crews used a Tirfor winch to release one female casualty and left the incident in the hands of the police.” A spokeswoman for South Western Ambulance said: “We were called at 11.15am to reports of a road traffic collision near Lidl on Lysander Road. “There were four patients in total. Two were treated at the scene and two were taken to Yeovil District Hospital.

Penny Hydraulics British companies unite to improve highways safety with Amey plc Thanks to the crane structures being so light, Amey are also assured that fleet vehicle emissions will be kept to a minimum. The crane comes with an easy to use wander lead remote control and being fully demountable, the cranes can be deployed on other vehicles, or removed completely meaning fleet flexibility can be maintained. Similarly, the MC250s can be easily refitted to new, or replacement vehicles. Safety is king when it comes to mechanical handling equipment. The MC250 model has a built-in overload device that ensures operator safety is maintained, as the crane does not allow lifting beyond its safe working load. The cranes are manufactured in the UK to stringent EU standards too, theyre CE marked and comply with all relevant UK legislation, giving Amey peace of mind that their equipment is perfectly safe for their operators to use. Regular statutory examinations in accordance with Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998 (LOLER), throughout the cranes life will ensure that the equipment remains safe for many years to come. The vehicles safety credentials are further enhanced by the specification of their tipper bodies. Bevan Specialist Products, of Stone, Staffordshire, incorporated its innovative Safe-T-Drop system, which guards against the risk of a fall from height by operatives working on the vehicle bed, into the design.

Thirty-two safety professionals from two federal agencies the Department of Labors Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the Department of Interiors Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement (BSEE) were trained to climb a turbine, perform self-rescue and rescue scenarios in Elgin, Ill., at the only facility in the Americas to offer a fully-operational wind turbine dedicated exclusively to training purposes. The federal trainees included a representative from the office of OSHAs Assistant Secretary and eight OSHA regions, as well as Labors Health Response Team and Department of Training and Education. The wind industry is gaining momentum, and added 23,000 new jobs in 2014. That underscores the importance of worker health and safety, said American Wind Energy Association CEO Tom Kiernan. As we continue to scale up homegrown wind energy, working closely with OSHA and the BSEE will be vital to maintaining the high safety standards we hold true as an industry. The training stems from an alliance between OSHA and AWEA signed in August 2011 at the U.S. Department of Labor. Through its Alliance Program, OSHA works with groups committed to worker safety and health to prevent workplace fatalities, injuries and illnesses. The three-day program was developed by OSHAs National Office; Thomas Bielema, Region V Area Director, Peoria, Ill.; and AWEAs Michele Myers Mihelic, Director of Worker Health and Safety Policy Standards Development. Industry professionals provided both classroom and practical training for the attendees.
