Bulletin Overview

Both the manufacturing and construction industries find it necessary to move large, heavy loads in their daily operations. The various types of “lifting” equipment used present significant safety issues to be considered, both for the operators of the devices and for workers in proximity to them.

These safety issues are addressed in the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) “Crane Rule” which became effective on 11/8/2010. The Crane Rule regulations are found in the Code of Federal Regulations CFR 1926, Subpart CC “Cranes & Derricks in Construction.”
