Action:
Cranes and Derricks in Construction: Revising the Exemption for Digger Derricks, ยงยง1026.952 and 192
 
General Information
Action Summary Federal OSHA has expanded the digger-derrick exemption in the Cranes and Derricks in Construction Standard to include all digger derricks used in construction work subject to Part 1926, Subpart V. A digger derrick is a specialized type of equipment designed to install utility poles. It typically comes equipped with augers to drill holes for the poles, and with a hydraulic boom to lift the poles and set them in the holes. Employers also use the booms to lift objects other than poles; accordingly, electric utilities, telecommunication companies, and their contractors use booms both to place objects on utility poles and for general lifting purposes at worksites.
