CRANES & RIGGING OSHA 1926 Subpart N &
1926 Subpart CC 1926 Subpart N - Helicopters, Hoists, Elevators and Conveyors
1926 Subpart CC - Cranes & Derricks in Construction CHANGES TO STANDARDS 1926.1400(a)
This standard applies to power-operated equipment, when used in construction, that can hoist, lower and horizontally move a suspended load. Such equipment includes, but is not limited to: Articulating cranes (such as knuckle-boom cranes); crawler cranes; floating cranes; cranes on barges; locomotive cranes; mobile cranes (such as wheel-mounted, rough-terrain, all-terrain, commercial truck-mounted, and boom truck cranes); multi-purpose machines when configured to hoist and lower (by means of a winch or hook) and horizontally move a suspended load; industrial cranes (such as carry-deck cranes); dedicated pile drivers; service/mechanic trucks with a hoisting device; a crane on a monorail; tower cranes (such as a fixed jib, i.e., "hammerhead boom"), luffing boom and self-erecting); pedestal cranes; portal cranes; overhead and gantry cranes; straddle cranes; sideboom cranes; derricks; and variations of such equipment. However, items listed in paragraph (c) of this section are excluded from the scope of this standard.

1926.1400(c) Exclusions. This subpart does not cover:
1926.1400(c)(1) Machinery included in paragraph (a) of this section while it has been converted or adapted for a non-hoisting/lifting use. Such conversions/adaptations include, but are not limited to, power shovels, excavators and concrete pumps.
1926.1400(c)(2) Power shovels, excavators, wheel loaders, backhoes, loader backhoes, track loaders. This machinery is also excluded when used with chains, slings or other rigging to lift suspended loads.
1926.1400(c)(8) Powered industrial trucks (forklifts), except when configured to hoist and lower (by means of a winch or hook) and horizontally move a suspended load. SCOPE SUBPART N - 1926.550-.556 RIGGING EQUIPMENT - (Where to Find) 1926.552(a)(1)

The employer shall comply with the manufacturer's specifications and limitations applicable to the operation of all hoists and elevators. Where manufacturer's specifications are not available, the limitations assigned to the equipment shall be based on the determinations of a professional engineer competent in the field.

Subpart CC - Cranes & Derricks in Construction Don't forget - Subpart Q - Concrete
Subpart R - Steel Erection TYPES OF RIGGING & INSPECTIONS Types of slings covered are those made from alloy steel chain, wire rope, metal mesh, natural or synthetic fiber rope (conventional three strand construction), and synthetic web (nylon, polyester, and polypropylene).

Rigging equipment for material handling shall be inspected prior to use on each shift and as necessary during its use to ensure that it is safe. Defective rigging equipment shall be removed from service.

Permanently affixed and legible identifications markings with manufacture safe working load, !! not used without !!, removed from immediate work area when not in use, and removed from service when deficient or defective.
Special custom design grabs, hooks, clamps, or other lifting accessories, for such units as modular panels, prefabricated structures and similar materials, shall be marked to indicate the safe working loads and shall be proof-tested prior to use to 125 percent of their rated load. 1926.251(a)(6)
"Inspections." Each day before being used, the sling and all fastenings and attachments shall be inspected for damage or defects by a competent person designated by the employer. Additional inspections shall be performed during sling use, where service conditions warrant. Damaged or defective slings shall be immediately removed from service.
1926.251(b)(6) "Inspections."
In addition to the inspection required by other paragraphs of this section, a thorough periodic inspection of alloy steel chain slings in use shall be made on a regular basis, to be determined on the basis of (A) frequency of sling use; (B) severity of service conditions; (C) nature of lifts being made; and (D) experience gained on the service life of slings used in similar circumstances. Such inspections shall in no event be at intervals greater than once every 12 months.
The employer shall make and maintain a record of the most recent month in which each alloy steel chain sling was thoroughly inspected, and shall make such record available for examination. INSPECTION Types of Wear, Damage, Environmental Effects, Mis-use of, etc.

Whenever there is a concern as to safety, the operator must have the authority to stop and refuse to handle loads until a qualified person has determined that safety has been assured. AUTHORITY TO STOP 1926.1419 - Signals--general requirements.
A signal person must be provided in each of the following situations:
The point of operation, meaning the load travel or the area near or at load placement, is not in full view of the operator.
When the equipment is traveling, the view in the direction of travel is obstructed.
Due to site specific safety concerns, either the operator or the person handling the load determines that it is necessary.

Types of signals. Signals to operators must be by hand, voice, audible, or new signals.
(c,d,e,f,g,h,i,j,k,l,m all other under general requirements)

1926.1420 - Signals--radio, telephone or other electronic transmission of signals.

(e)During a tilt-up or tilt-down operation:
(1)No employee must be directly under a load
(2)Only employees essential to the operation are permitted in the fall zone (but not directly under the load). An employee is essential to the operation if the employee is conducting one of the following operations and the employer can demonstrate it is infeasible for the employee to perform that operation from outside the fall zone: (1) Physically guide the load; (2) closely monitor and give instructions regarding the load's movement; or (3) either detach it from or initially attach it to another component or structure (such as, but not limited to, making an initial connection or installing bracing). 1926.1425 1926.1425

An assessment by an employer's qualified evaluator under this option is not portable--other employers are not permitted to use it to meet the requirements of this section. 1926.1428(c)
Qualification Requirements. Each signal person must:
(c)(1) Know and understand the type of signals used. If hand signals are used, the signal person must know and understand the Standard Method for hand signals.

What were teh most deaths from in 2009 in regards to Cranes?
What about usually?
Minimum Distance from up to 50kV?
Fall Protection required for Non-Assembly/Disassembly when?
Why do you use taglines?
