New cranes and derricks fact sheets now available online

Two more fact sheets have recently been posted to the U.S. Department of
Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration Web site to provide
assistance complying with the cranes and derricks in construction final rule.

The Qualified Rigger fact sheet is a guide for determining if a worker is
qualified to properly rig the load for a particular job.

The Signal Person fact sheet explains the proper qualifications for a worker
whose job is to direct a crane operator under conditions such as when the
crane's point of operation is not in full view of the operator or the
operator's view is obstructed in the direction the equipment is traveling.

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.
