Cranes and Slings
National Summary

This topic covers OSHA’s regulations for cranes, derricks, and rigging in nonconstruction workplaces.

Cranes and slings are used to hoist and move heavy and bulky materials, with considerable risk of injury to crane operators and handlers. For that reason, OSHA has adopted crane and sling regulations that prescribe procedures for handling heavy loads safely. The cranes, slings, and derricks rules for general industry workplaces address procedures for equipment operations, personnel training, qualifications and requirements of “designated” persons, and detailed requirements for equipment maintenance and inspection.
