New guide to help small businesses comply with new cranes and derricks rule

The U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration
now offers a guidance document to help small businesses comply with the
agency's cranes and derricks rule published in August 2010. This new standard
was issued to address the number of worker injuries and deaths associated with
the use of cranes and derricks in construction. Chapters in the Small Entity
Compliance Guide for Final Rule for Cranes and Derricks in Construction
correspond to sections of the standard to help employers understand what they
must do to protect their workers from dangerous, sometimes fatal injuries. This
guide accompanies other OSHA compliance materials on crane-related topics
available on the agency's Web site including a PowerPoint overview, Web chat
transcript, Webinar, list of frequently asked questions and fact sheets.
