New Standards: OSHA Launches New Crane & Derricks Rule
US regulator OSHA has launched a new cranes and derricks rule on July 28, 2010. Pressure on OSHA to get the rule into effect increased after two mass fatality accidents in New York in 2008. The new rule is designed to prevent the leading causes of fatalities, including electrocution, crushed-by/struck-by hazards during assembly/disassembly, collapse and overturn.  The rule addresses tower crane hazards, the use of synthetic slings for assembly/disassembly work, and clarifies the scope of the regulation by providing both a functional description and a list of examples for the equipment that is covered.
