    New ANSI Standards for Aerial Work Platforms

    Date: March 12, 2019 Register Now
    Time: 11 a.m. ET
    Length: 60 Minutes
    Speakers:    Rick Smith, Senior Director, Global Product Training, JLG Industries

    WEBINAR DESCRIPTION 
    The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) creates standards that govern the design and use of aerial work platforms across North America. New ANSI standards for the U.S. were published in December 2018 and become effective in December 2019. The industry now has less than one year to become compliant with the new ANSI standards.

    Everyone associated with aerial work platforms will be impacted by the new standards. Owners, operators, occupants, supervisors, manufacturers, dealers, and people that rent aerials will need to make changes in the areas of training, job site safety, and machine selection to accommodate the new standards.

    There are three new ANSI standards that cover machine design, safe use, and training. Machine Design standards (A92.20) govern the design, safety requirements and testing of Mobile Elevating Work Platforms (MEWPs). Safe Use standards (A92.22) govern the application, maintenance, and safe operation of MEWPs. Training standards (A92.24) govern training requirements, topics, and methods for MEWPs. The impact of each of these standards on MEWP users and operators will be covered in this webinar.

    Time: 11 a.m. ET
    Length: 60 Minutes
    Speakers:    Nat Peniston

Self-funding has many positives, such as reducing costs and increasingly plan flexibility, but it is not a solution for all contractors. This Webinar will help participants learn key points on when (or if) a self-funded plan should be considered. The Contractors Plan possesses unique administrative capabilities and processes designed specifically for multi-location construction contractors that facilitate enrollment and ongoing administration.

    Speakers:    Nat Peniston & Steve Antill

    Webinar Description

    Learn ways leading employers are significantly reducing the time spent on payroll and the administration of employee benefit programs while reducing errors and enhancing compliance and effectiveness. Traditional payroll companies are not built with the unique needs of contractors in mind and can struggle with common tasks such as submitting certified payroll reports and prevailing wage calculations. Growing construction firms that leverage systems and processes designed to meet multiple jurisdictional requirements (multiple county prevailing wage rates for example) are better able to compete and win more business.

    George Mason University: Prevailing Wage Legislation and the Continuing Significance of Race

    A study released in June 2018 by the George Mason University Antonin Scalia Law School found that prevailing wage laws discriminate against minority construction workers who have been traditionally underrepresented in labor unions. By examining the Davis-Bacon Act and the original intent of the law to exclude African-American construction workers from working on federal projects, to looking at the continuing effects of prevailing wage laws and the lack of minority participation in labor unions, the authors conclude  that prevailing wage legislation has been a disaster for minority construction workers.

    Minnesota Center for Fiscal Excellence Finds Flawed and Outdated Prevailing Wage Calculation Process

    A study released by the Minnesota Center for Fiscal Excellence found that the
    prevailing wage determination process utilized by the Minnesota Department of Labor and Industry leads to inaccurate wage rates on construction projects. A disproportionate 75 percent of prevailing wages reflected union rates in the period analyzed in the study, even though just 32 percent of private construction workers in Minnesota belong to a union. The authors also discovered that 72 percent of all prevailing wage rates were set using old rates, imported rates or a combination of both.
