Rule Caption: Adopt changes to Division 3, Construction. Oregon and Federal OSHA changes in Cranes and Derricks.

Adm. Order No.: OSHA 1-2011

Filed with Sec. of State: 2-9-2011

Certified to be Effective: 2-9-11

Notice Publication Date: 12-1-2010

Rules Adopted: 437-003-1423, 437-003-3600

Rules Amended: 437-003-0001

Subject: This rulemaking is to keep Oregon OSHA in harmony with recent changes to Federal OSHA’s standards.

      Oregon OSHA held two public hearings in January 2011.
Testimony was received at the hearings as well as written comments submitted throughout the comment period. All comments were carefully considered before proceeding with this final rulemaking.

      Oregon OSHA adopted most of the Federal OSHA changes as they appear in the August 9, 2010 Federal Register. These changes revise the construction industry crane and derrick rules found in new Subpart CC of 29 CFR Part 1926. The Oregon OSHA differences are outlined in this document.

      The crane and derrick construction standard was revised to update and specify industry work practices necessary to protect employees. This final standard also addresses advances in the designs of cranes and derricks, related hazards, and the qualifications of employees needed to operate them safely. Under this final rule, employers must determine whether the ground is sufficient to support the anticipated weight and associated loads of hoisting equipment. The employer is also required to assess hazards within the work zone that would affect the safe operation of hoisting equipment, such as power lines and objects or personnel that would be within the work zone or swing radius of the hoisting equipment. Finally, the employer is required to ensure that the equipment is in safe operating condition through required inspections and that employees in the work zone are trained to recognize hazards associated with the use of the equipment and any related duties that they are assigned to perform.

      Federal OSHA, in 1926.1427 Operator qualification and certification, paragraph (k), implemented a phase-in period based on a number of comments that Option (1) of the section (operator certification by an accredited testing organization) is the only viable option for many employers. Concern was also expressed about the availability of sufficient accredited testing organizations to meet the demand that this rule would create. Therefore, in the final rule, Federal OSHA has provided a four-year phase-in period for compliance. Oregon OSHA is keeping the current Oregon Administrative Rule (OAR 437-003-0081 Crane operator safety training requirements) until such time that the 1926.1427(k) phase-in period has expired, November 10, 2014.

      Federal OSHA established minimum clearance distances for power line safety up to 350 kV for equipment in accordance with Table A of 1926.1408 Power line safety (up to 350 kV) – equipment operations. Table A is based upon the same formula that was used in subpart N (the 10-foot rule) and is similar to Table 1 in ASME B30.5–2004. Unlike subpart N, which required employers to calculate the minimum clearance distance from a formula, Table A sets specified clearance distances in a readily understood table and requires no calculations. Oregon OSHA’s Crane Advisory Committee (CAC) pointed out that Table A of the final rule specified alternating current (AC) and did not address minimum clearance distances for direct current (DC). Therefore, Oregon OSHA is inserting a note clarifying that the clearance distances for power line safety up to 350 kV (AC) for equipment established in Table A, will apply to (DC) electrical distribution and transmission power lines as well. A note will also be placed in section 1926.1411 Power line safety while traveling under or near power lines with no load, to emphasize (DC) voltages.

      Section 1926.1423 Fall Protection, of the Federal OSHA rule, contains provisions designed to protect workers on equipment covered by subpart CC from fall hazards. Falls have traditionally been the leading cause of deaths among construction workers. The federal Crane and Derrick Advisory Committee (CDAC) determined that safety would be enhanced by addressing the problem of fall hazards associated with cranes and derricks comprehensively and that putting requirements in subpart CC would make it easier for employers to readily determine the applicable fall protection requirements.

      The Oregon OSHA CAC recommended revising portions of the fall protection section in 1926.1423. Specifically, it was decided not to adopt the following sections in 1926.1423:

      • (d) Personal Fall Arrest and Fall Restraint Systems

      • (e) Fall Protection Requirements for Non-Assembly/ Disassembly Work;

      • (f) Assembly/Disassembly;

      • (h) Tower Cranes;

      • (j) Anchoring to the Load Line;

      • and portions of (g) Anchorage Criteria, and (k) Training

      To maintain consistency throughout the Oregon construction industry, the committee felt that changing paragraphs (d), (e), (f), and (h) to one fall height of ten (10) feet would give clarity to this new rule and parallel Oregon’s current rule regarding general fall protection requirements under OAR 437-003-1501 General Fall Protection.

      Adopted new OAR 437-003-1423 Fall Protection will:

      • Replace 1926.1423(d) with 437-003-1423(1);

      • Replace 1926.1423(e) and (f) with 437-003-1423(2);

      • Replace 1926.1423(g)(1) with 437-003-1423(3);

      • Replace 1926.1423(h) with 437-003-1423(4);

      • Replace 1926.1423(j) with 437-003-1423(5);

      • Be added to 1926.1423(k) as 437-003-1423(6).

      Federal OSHA also made changes in the following areas in Construction. Oregon OSHA adopted these changes except where specified:

      • Subpart A General, new rule 1926.6 is added which is an incorporation by reference of agencies of the U.S. Government, and other organizations. 1926.31 is removed with the majority of the text included in the new 1926.6. The new 1926.6 will parallel the existing standard 1910.6 in general industry.

      • Subpart C General Safety and Health Provisions, 1926.31 was removed and reserved.

      • Subpart L Scaffolds, 1926.450, scope, application, and definitions applicable to the subpart was revised to say the section does not apply to crane or derrick suspended personnel platforms and the criteria for aerial lifts are set out exclusively in 1926.453.

      • Subpart M Fall Protection, 1926.500 scope, application, and definitions applicable to the subpart, 1926.500 was amended by revising paragraph (a)(2)(ii), adding paragraph (a)(3)(v), and revising paragraph (a)(4).

      • New subpart DD, consisting of section 1926.1500 was added to read, Subpart DD—Cranes and Derricks Used in Demolition and Underground Construction, applies only to employers engaged in demolition work covered by sections 1926.856 and 1926.858, and underground construction work covered by section 1926.800. The subpart applies in lieu of 1926 subpart CC.

      • The Subpart N heading was revised to read Helicopters, Hoists, Elevators, and Conveyors from the former heading Cranes, Derricks, Hoists, Elevators, and Conveyors. 1926.550 was redesignated as 1926.1501 in new subpart DD. 1926.550 is reserved and 1926.553 was amended by adding paragraph (c) base-mounted drum hoists. Oregon OSHA relocated OAR 437-003-0080 Wind velocity device, and OAR 437-003-0081 Crane Operator Safety Training Requirements, into new subpart CC, 1926.1427.

      • Subpart O Motorized Vehicles, Mechanical Equipment, and Marine Operations, 1926.600 was amended by revising paragraph (a)(6). Oregon OSHA is not adopting 1926.600(a)(6)(i), (a)(6)(ii), and (a)(6)(v), but adopted new rule OAR 437-003-3600 Equipment, to replace Federal OSHA language of “crane” with “equipment” in the three paragraphs.

      • Subpart R Steel Erection, 1926.753 was amended by revising paragraphs (a) and (c)(4) to reflect provisions of subpart CC.

      • Subpart S Underground Construction, Caissons, Cofferdams, and Compressed Air, 1926.800 was amended by revising paragraph (t), hoisting unique to underground construction.

      • Subpart T Demolition, Removal of walls, floors, and material with equipment, 1926.856 was amended by revising paragraph (c) as well as 1926.858 is amended by revising paragraph (b).

      • Subpart V Power Transmission and Distribution, 1926.952 was amended by revising paragraph (c).

      • Subpart X Stairways and Ladders, 1926.1050 was amended by revising paragraph (a).

      • Subparts AA and BB [Reserved].

Fall Protection

(1) Personal fall arrest and fall restraint systems must use personal fall arrest components that conform to the criteria in Division 3/M Fall Protection.

NOTE: Except that 1926.502(d)(15), Fall Protection Systems Criteria and Practices/Personal fall arrest systems (anchors), does not apply to components used in personal fall arrest and fall restraint systems. (See 1926.1423(g) and 437-003-1423(3))

(2) When employees are assembling, disassembling or otherwise performing work on a walking/working surface of a crane with an unprotected side or edge more than 10 feet above a lower level, the employer must provide fall protection systems and ensure they are installed and used according to the criteria in Division 3/M, Fall Protection.

(a) When moving point-to-point:

(A) On non-lattice booms (whether horizontal or not horizontal).

(B) On lattice booms that are not horizontal.

(C) On horizontal lattice booms where the fall distance is 10 feet or more.

(b) While at a work station on any part of the equipment (including the boom, of any type), except when the employee is at or near draw-works (when the equipment is running), in the cab, or on the deck.

(3) Anchorage criteria. 1926.502(d)(15), 1926.502(e)(2), and 437-003-0502(4) apply to equipment covered by this subdivision only to the extent delineated in paragraphs 1926.1423(g)(2) and (3).

(4) Tower cranes. When employees are erecting, climbing, dismantling or otherwise performing work on a walking/working surface of a tower crane with an unprotected side or edge more than 10 feet above a lower level, employers must ensure that fall protection systems are provided, installed, and used according to the criteria in Division 3/M, Fall Protection.

(5) Anchoring to the load line. A personal fall arrest system is permitted to be anchored to the crane/derrick’s hook or other part of the load line when all of the following requirements are met:

(a) A qualified person determines that the set up and rated capacity of the crane/derrick, including the hook, load line and rigging, meets or exceeds the requirements in 1926.502(d)(15).

(b) The operator is informed that it is being used for this purpose and is in view of and no more than 25 feet from the operator station/cab.

(c) No load is suspended from the crane/derrick when the personal fall arrest system is anchored and used.

(d) The crane/derrick is not moved when the personal fall arrest system is anchored and being used.

(6) Training. The employer must train each employee who may be exposed to fall hazards while on, or hoisted by, equipment covered by this subdivision on the applicable requirements in OARs 437-003-1599 and 437-003-0502.
