SC&RA unveils crane safety guide

September 15 - The Specialized Carriers & Rigging Association (SC&RA) has released its new Guide to Mobile Crane Safety Management, which aims to fortify the association's ongoing efforts to reduce crane and lifting accidents.

The 104-page book reflects substantial changes in tools, technologies and perspectives on the past two decades. Among developments covered in the title are those resulting from new Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) rules, and updated standards such as the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) B30.5 - Mobile and Locomotive Cranes.

Written by industry veterans Ronald Kohner P.E. and Robert Hontz, the new publication contains chapters on risk, lift classification, lift planning, and jobsite issues.

The guide will also include a number of appendices, including a shift/daily/monthly checklist; SC&RA's annual checklists for lattice boom and telescopic boom cranes; operating in the twilight zone of crane capacities; personnel hoisting; a glossary; lift planning checklist; and additional resources.

The Guide to Mobile Crane Safety Management is available to SC&RA members for USD99, and non-members for USD199. To purchase the new guide from SC&RA, visit
