OSHA 1926.1400 Crane Standard

The U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration has issued a new rule addressing the use of cranes and derricks in construction, which will replace a decades-old standard. The new standard will take effect on November 8, 2010.

The previous rule, which dated back to 1971, was based on 40-year-old standards. Stakeholders from the construction industry recognized the need to update the safety requirements, methods and practices for cranes and derricks, and to incorporate technological advances in order to provide improved protection for those who work on and around cranes and derricks.

Key Changes include:

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. It also sets requirements for ground conditions and crane operator assessment. In addition, the rule addresses tower crane hazards, addresses 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.

The complete OSHA rule is available here.

Capital City Group believes these changes will make a safer jobsite for our customers and emplyees and we are committed to stay ahead of industry standards.

Services we have added:

  • Qualified Riggers
  • Qualified Signalpersons
  • Multiple Crane Lift Plans & Implementation

Safety is accomplished by a proactive teamwork approach. Capital City Group Inc. believes that by eliminating accidents and injuries, the total performance of the company is improved. For specific inquiries into our safety policies and practices, please contact us.
