Cranes, Rigging and Personnel Lifting Rule

Effective as of February 1st 2012 (2 weeks ago now), the new crane rule went into effect.

In the wake of several crane accidents and fatalities, not to mention the cost of damages, OSHA has put together a new rule for crane inspection, maintenance and operation. If you haven’t been aware of this new rule, don’t panic yet. While it went into effect at the beginning of the month, you’ve got until July 31st, 2012 to comply.

To get a handle on the new rule as well as to get training, sample Accident Prevention Plans (APP) and a whole lot more, you can check out the resources available on the Department of Labor and Industries website under the construction crane resources section.
