OSHA Adds 45 Days for Crane and Derricks Comments

Stakeholders have 45 more days to file written comments on OSHA’s proposed rule for cranes and derricks in construction, with comments now due no later than Jan. 22. The agency said numerous parties asked for an additional 60 to 90 days.

OSHA published the proposed rule on Oct. 9. The deadline for written comments was Dec. 8, 2008. “However, a significant number of stakeholders have requested an extension (ranging from 60-90 days) for submitting their written comments and information. Some of the stakeholders noted that the length of the Federal Register notice (over 200 pages), the number of specific requests for public comments included in the NPRM (estimated at 150), and the numerous reference materials related to the NPRM all require more time for review than initially provided,” the agency stated in its notice of the extended deadline.

Thomas M. Stohler, recently installed as acting assistant secretary of Labor for Occupational Safety and Health, was the signer of the notice.
