New Crane & Derricks Standard


For those unaware, there’s a new OSHA standard for cranes & derricks in construction. That standard, CFR 29 Part 1926 Subpart CC was published July 9, 2010 and became effective last month on November 8, 2010. It’s a 200 page standard so I’m not going to try and summarize it all; however, there are several notable changes, which include personnel titles and minimum qualifications, with options to meet those qualifications.

Charlie Bird did an excellent job discussing the new standard in a recent edition of the Commonwealth Contractor, Issue 15 of November 2010.
