The big challenge with the OSHA Cranes and Derricks in Construction Rule is the complex methodology that long extension equipment operators must use to assess voltages and determine required clearances.
We consulted with many utility and industry experts and updated all our contractor materials for the new regulated operating clearances and safety practices for cranes and derricks.
We simplified the communication of the rule so that third-party contractors can understand and act on it. And we did it in a way that works for utilities and their legal departments.
(We also offer the earlier versions of our materials for utilities located in states that haven’t adopted this rule.)
Third-party contractors we interview make clear that their companies believe that compliance with OSHA rules is important because OSHA violations trigger fines and increase their insurance rates.
The new OSHA Cranes and Derricks in Construction Rule is an opportunity for utilities to engage contractors while helping them work safely around overhead lines.
Relying on Culver materials saves you research time and development costs. We can help you prevent accidents and save lives while you comply with regulations.
