OSHA Issues FactSheet for Cranes and Derricks Final Rule (TRN Safety Alert)

From Cliff Gerbick, ASP (The Reserves Network Director of Safety)

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has released a FactSheet to help employers understand the recently released final rule for the safe operation of Cranes and Derricks. The new standard was released in 2010 and it updated a severely outdated standard that had not been changed since its initial issuance in 1971. OSHA estimates that the new standard will prevent 22 fatalities and 175 non-fatal injuries in the workplace.

The FactSheet provides quick reference to the changes in the standard and outlines the requirements that employees need to take to ensure compliance with all aspects of the standard.
