OSHA Extends Comment Period for Crane Rule

Thursday, April 9, 2009

Comment | More

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration has extended until 11:59 p.m. May 18, the post-hearing comment period for its proposed standard on cranes and derricks in construction.

The proposed standard (OSHA Docket 2007-0066) was published in the Oct. 9, 2008, edition of the Federal Register (73 FR 59713). A public hearing on the standard was held in March.

The post-hearing comment period was divided into two parts. The first part is for additional information and data relevant to the proposed rule. That deadline is now May 18. The second part is for final written comments, summations, arguments and briefs; that deadline is now June 18. Hearing participants are also asked to review the transcript for accuracy and submit any corrections by June 18.

Any material submitted must be related to the hearing evidence, testimony or transcript. No new evidence may be submitted.

To read or download the hearing transcript and any post-hearing submissions, go to Docket No. OSHA 2007-0066 at http://www.regulations.gov.

No reason was given for the extension, which was issued April 1 in a memo to the hearing participants from Robert Biersner, counsel for safety standards, in the Office of the Solicitor.
