Washington: Hearings to focus on cranes in construction work
The Department of Labor and Industries proposed changes to rules addressing the requirements that employers must follow with regard to inspection, maintenance, and operation of cranes used in the construction industry.
The rules also include updates to the rigging and personnel lifting requirements. The proposal also includes requirements the Occupational Safety and Health Administration has in its rule. Public hearings are scheduled for Oct. 5 in Spokane, Oct. 6 in Seattle, and Oct. 11 in Tumwater. Public comments should be submitted to Cindy Ireland at firstname.lastname@example.org by Oct. 14. The department intends to adopt the rules on Nov. 22.
