Mobile elevating work platforms, commonly called scissor or boom lifts, are common in nearly every manufacturing plant and on every construction site. Very few companies have solid and up-to-date training programs in place for them. New American National Standards Institute went into effect in December 2018.

Learning Objectives:
1. Recognize and learn about the recently changed American National Standards Institute for mobile elevating work platforms.

3. Identify and deal with the big four killers on these types of lifts.
