The Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) in the US published the proposed Cranes and Derricks in Construction rule in the 9 October 2008 edition of the Federal Register. Copies of the proposed rule can be obtained at http://edocket.access.gpo.gov/2008/pdf/E8-21993.pdf. All comments are due by 8 December 2008.
SC&RA is reviewing the proposed rule and will offer additional information to members in the coming weeks via its newsletter and web site www.scranet.org. SC&RA members from the original C-DAC will be working with staff over the coming weeks to evaluate the proposed rule against the direction originally established during the advisory committee process.Questions or comments can be directed to Beth O'Quinn, SC&RA vice president, crane and rigging, at +1 (703) 698-0291 or firstname.lastname@example.org
