Federal Identical Construction Industry Standards [16 VAC 25 ‑ 175]
This action is exempt from the executive branch review process.
Action:
Cranes and Derricks in Construction: Underground Construction and Demolition
 
General Information
Action Summary This new federal final rule replaces the attempted 2012 Direct Final Rule (DFR) which did not become effective and which applies the same crane rules to underground construction and demolition that are already being used by other construction sectors and to streamline OSHA’s standards by eliminating the separate cranes and derricks standards currently used for underground and demolition work. The rule also corrects errors made to the underground construction and demolition standards in the 2010 rulemaking. The amendments in this final rule will result in more stringent requirements for cranes and derricks used in underground construction or demolition work.
