OSHA extends requirements to demolition, underground construction

OSHA has issued a direct final rule and notice of proposed rulemaking applying requirements of the August 2010 cranes and derricks in construction standard to demolition and underground construction. The intent is to protect workers from hazards associated with hoisting equipment used during construction activities.

The agency says the change will streamline standards by eliminating the separate cranes and derricks standard currently used for underground and demolition work. The rulemaking also makes it easier for workers and employers to understand the standards.

The direct final rule becomes effective November 15.
