|Publication Date:||1 January 2016|
This standard establishes minimum criteria for safe work practices and training for personnel performing work on communication structures including antenna and antenna supporting structures, broadcast and other similar structures supporting communication related equipment. This standard does not address specific work practices or personnel training requirements involving crane applications which are covered explicitly within other ANSI and OSHA standards and regulations. At a minimum, all construction activities on communication structures involving cranes shall include direct communication with the crane company and/or operator to establish rigging plan requirements and key designated personnel to ensure individual roles and responsibilities are fully understood. At a minimum, designated key personnel, where applicable, shall include the crane operator, signal person, spotter and qualified rigger(s) responsible for attaching and detaching the lifted loads from the crane's hook. The language in the standard regarding personnel riding the load line on a base mounted hoist is specific to this standard and does not apply to any other industry or standard.
