Crane operators and safety managers will love this easy-to-use and comprehensive guidebook to OSHA CFR requirements, ANSI standards, proven managerial insights, and crane manufacturers' guidelines. Crane Safety helps readers avoid unnecessary injuries and penalties by discussing training and qualification requirements specified by OSHA and recommended by manufacturers of cranes and crane equipment. This all-in-one, 337-page reference examines the general requirements for both employees and employers, including employer responsibilities under Title 29 CFR Parts 1926.550 and 1926.32. Also included are operator responsibilities under 1910.179 and information on the operation, inspection, maintenance, and testing of overhead and gantry cranes, mobile cranes, and derricks. The author examines six crane and derrick OSHA standards, providing applicable definitions, general requirements, and his own clarifications for each standard: 1910.179 (overhead and gantry cranes), 1910.180 (crawler locomotive and truck cranes), 1910.181 (derricks), 1926.550 (cranes and derricks), 1926.251 (rigging equipment for material handling), and 1910.184 (slings). Special features include a glossary of nearly 300 specialized terms, extensive calculations and tables from Crosby's User's Lifting Guide, and 12 appendices, including a complete critical lift plan and ready-to-use inspection checklists/forms.
