AGC Responds to OSHA’s Proposed Rule on Cranes & Derricks

On July 5, AGC of America commented on the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) proposed rule to update its existing cranes rule. The proposal attempts to clarify the existing training requirements and to incorporate an employer evaluation provision into the standard. AGC called on the agency to further clarify: what satisfies the ongoing training requirement for crane operators (e.g., tool box talks, pre-lift meetings, job safety analysis reviews, etc.); whether or not such training must be job-specific; and how the ongoing training requirement changes as an operator’s experience expands, among other things.
