New chair for ANSI A92.6 committee

Brad Boehler, director of product safety at Skyjack, the Canadian based aerial lift manufacturer, has been appointed to Chair the ANSI A92.6 Sub-committee.

Boehler was nominated by the previous chair, Bud Hayden who has decided to step down.

A majority vote from the Main A92 Committee meeting last week in Baltimore, Maryland, confirmed the appointment which was officially made by Dave Merrifield, the Chair of the A92 Main Committee.

The ANSI A92.6 sub committee is responsible for the ANSI/SIA A96.2 Self-Propelled Elevating Work Platforms standard. Boehler has been active with the A92 committee and various sub-committees, including A92.3 Manually Propelled Elevating Work Platforms, A92.5 Boom Supported Elevating Work Platforms over the past four years.

He is also involved with the Canadian standards, including CSA B354 Elevating Work Platforms Technical Committee, and the ISO Technical Committee 214 (TC 214) - Elevating Work Platforms.

Boehler sits on the IPAF manufacturer’s technical committee and has been heavily involved with the introduction of IPAF/AWPT training courses in North America.
