OSHA has put the answers to 13 frequently asked questions about its new crane & derrick rule on its Website.

They are at https://www.osha.gov/cranes-derricks/faq.html.

A few of the questions:

When will the rule be effective?

Where can I find a copy of the rule?

Does the final rule allow cities or states to have their own licensing or certification program for crane operators?

How does this new rule affect those states that administer their own OSHA-approved safety and health plans?

It's a quick and interesting read.
