Terex Utilities Publishes Product Advisory for Final OSHA Cranes & Derricks Rule

Terex Utilities has published Product Advisory PA 1020D-18 regarding the recently released revision to the final rule on crane operator certification, which is effective Dec. 9, 2018. The requirement for Operator Certification by type took effect on November 10, 2018. The Product Advisory is available for download from the Safety tab at www.terex.com/utilities.

Terex Utilities is advising all users of Digger Derricks and Cranes to review the OSHA regulations, 29 CFR 1926 Subpart CC, to determine if their use of this equipment is affected. Note that there are some exemptions for Digger Derricks for work performed under 29 CFR 1910.269 subpart V, Electric Power Generation, Transmission and Distribution and 29 CRF 1910.268 Telecommunication. There are also requirements for how the digger derricks are equipped to comply with the operator aids and safety devices items when performing work which is not exempt.

The Product Advisory identifies work that is not exempt and provides additional resources related to operator training and certification requirements. It also reminds employers of operator evaluation documentation requirements which become effective Feb. 7, 2019.
