Cranes and Derricks in Construction: Revising the Exemption for Digger Derricks
Document Number: 2013-02777
Type: Rule
Date: 2013-02-07
Agency: Department of Labor, Occupational Safety and Health Administration
OSHA published a direct final rule and a companion notice of proposed rulemaking on November 9, 2012, to broaden the exemption for digger derricks in its construction standard for cranes and derricks. OSHA received a significant adverse comment on the direct final rule and is, therefore, withdrawing the direct final rule. OSHA will issue a final rule at a later date based on the notice of proposed rulemaking.
