OSHA's Cranes and Derricks Standards Update: The Litigators' Perspective on Subpart CC

Gain and understanding of the updated Cranes and Derricks Standards and the more recent amendments.

Defense of crane litigation is inherently risky given the typical stakes in an accident scenario, whether involving personal injury (typically catastrophic in nature) or property damage. This information will orient those who defend crane litigation, whether manufacturers, architects, engineers, maintainers, lessors or otherwise to understand the updated OSHA standards, what they mean, and how they can be used successfully toward defending such claims going forward.

Learning Objectives

  • You will be able to describe standards that replaced those that predated modern technology, including computers, and the more recent amendments.
  • You will be able to discuss operator, maintenance and repair qualifications.
  • You will be able to review recent case law and administrative guidance on the updated standards.
  • You will be able to recognize the impact of the updated standards on crane and derrick litigation.
