Employers who operate cranes on a construction site are responsible for complying with all aspects of the 29 CFR 1926, Subpart CC, Cranes & Derricks in Construction standard, but other employers whose personnel work at the site have responsibilities as well. These employer duties are consistent with OSHA's multi-employer policy, which imposes compliance duties on employers:

  • who create hazards (creating employers)
  • who correct hazards (correcting employers)
  • who expose employees to hazards (exposing employers)
  • who have general supervisory authority over a worksite (controlling employers)

This course is intended as a basic introduction to OSHA's standard 29 CFR 1926 Subpart CC - Cranes & Derricks in Construction. Emphasis is placed on employer and employee duties and responsibilities. It is designed to address the most common compliance issues that employers will face.
