OSHA Posts Rigger, Signalperson Fact Sheets

To provide assistance in complying with its new cranes and derricks regulation, OSHA has posted two fact sheets to its website.

The Qualified Rigger fact sheet is a guide for determining if a worker is qualified to properly rig the load for a particular job, and the Signal Person fact sheet explains the proper qualifications for a worker whose job is to direct a crane operator.

OSHA's Cranes and Derricks in Construction Final Rule page contains the complete text of the rule, additional fact sheets, a PowerPoint presentation, an archived Web chat and answers to frequently asked questions.
