Tower Cranes: How OSHA 1926.1400 Affects Operations is the subject of the SC&RA's June webinar. Scheduled at noon EST on June 15, the presentation will highlight the key areas in the new tower crane regulations and explain how to comply with them. It also will cover new items forthcoming in the next edition of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers standard for tower cranes - ASME B30.3.
