Revision of Approved Information Collection (Paperwork) Requirements for Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Approval; Cranes and Derricks in Construction

OSHA solicits public comments concerning its proposal to revise OMB's approval of the information collection requirements contained in the Cranes and Derricks in Construction Standard (29 CFR part 1926, Subpart CC). Employers and workers use these requirements to help ensure the safe operation of equipment covered by the standard. In addition, OSHA compliance safety and health officers use the information to determine, during an inspection, whether employers are complying with the requirements. In May 2013, OSHA published a final rule that broadened the exemption for digger derricks in the Cranes and Derricks Standard in Construction Subpart CC. As a result, OSHA is revising the Cranes and Derricks Standard in Construction paperwork analysis by reducing the number of entities that are required to comply with these information collection requirements.
