OSHA Publishes Court-Ordered Remand of Vertical Tandem Lift Final Rule

Posted in on Fri, May 23, 2014

OSHA has implemented a court-ordered remand of certain portions of its standard for vertical tandem lifts (VTLs).  The final rule implements the remand by limiting the application of the corner-casting and interbox-connector inspection requirements to shore-to-ship VTLs and removing the tandem lifts of platform containers from the scope of the VTL standard.  The final rule becomes effective July 21, 2014.  http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2014-04-21/html/2014-08725.htm
