OSHA Announces New Enforcement Policy on Monorail Hoists in Construction

Jul 05, 2017
OSHA has announced a new enforcement policy that excludes monorail hoists from the requirements of Subpart CC – Cranes and Derricks in Construction, as long as employers meet other OSHA requirements. The policy change was made in response to stakeholder comments that monorail hoists are significantly different from other cranes and derricks in construction. Under the new policy, the agency will not cite employers for failing to meet the requirements of Subpart CC if they meet the requirements of the overhead hoists and general training standards. The general industry requirements for monorail hoists remain intact. Read the news release for more information.
