OSHA provides direction for inspecting cranes and derricks on construction worksites

Requirements of the Cranes and Derricks in Construction standard

By

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration issued a directive for enforcing requirements of the Cranes and Derricks in Construction standard. The new directive provides OSHA compliance personnel with direction on performing inspections where power-operated equipment, covered by Subpart CC – Cranes and Derricks in Construction, is present on a construction worksite.

OSHA published the construction crane and derrick rule on Aug. 9, 2010, and most of its provisions became effective Nov. 8, 2010. The rule was revised to replace decades-old standards and address the significant number of fatalities associated with the use of cranes and derricks.

OSHA’s Cranes and Derricks Safety web page provides compliance assistance on equipment requirements for assembly and disassembly, qualified rigger, signal person qualifications and wire rope inspections; frequently asked questions; and PowerPoint presentations and videos explaining the revised rule and the hazards involved in crane operations.
