Changes to Federal Crane and Derrick Rules

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has issued a direct final rule and notice of proposed rulemaking that applies the requirements of the August 2010 cranes and derricks in construction standard to demolition work and underground construction. The application of this rule will protect workers from hazards associated with hoisting equipment used during construction activities.

The direct final rule will become effective November 15, 2012, unless OSHA receives a significant adverse comment by September 17.

You can submit comments here, or by fax or mail.
