Subject: OSHA Issues FAQs for Cranes and Derricks Standard


As part of our efforts to keep you informed of the agency's activities,
I wanted to let you know that OSHA has posted an updated set of 
Frequently Asked Questions
<http://www.osha.gov/cranes-derricks/faq.html>  (FAQs) on its revised
standard on cranes and derricks in construction.  There are now 50 FAQs
covering a variety of issues, such as the applicability of the standard,
how the new rule differs from the old rule, operator
certification/qualification, crane inspections, material delivery,
rigger qualification, and signal person qualification.


For more information, see the OSHA Cranes and Derricks in Construction
Final Rule Web <http://www.osha.gov/cranes-derricks/index.html>  page.
We hope that you will share this information with others in your
organization, including workers and downstream customers, as part of our
efforts together.
