OSHA Final Cranes and Derricks in Construction Rule Revising Exemption for Digger Derricks

Posted in on Tue, Jun 18, 2013

In November 2012 OSHA published a direct final rule and proposed rulemaking to broaden the exemption for digger derricks in its construction standard for cranes and derricks.  OSHA received a significant adverse comment on the direct final rule during the comment period, and as a result, OSHA withdrew the direct final rule on February 7, 2013. After considering this comment, OSHA is issuing this final rule based on the notice of proposed rulemaking.  The final rule is effective June 28, 2013.  http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2013-05-29/html/2013-12665.htm
