OSHA Announces Policy Change on Monorail Hoists

A new enforcement policy excludes monorail hoists from the requirements of Subpart CC.

OSHA 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 the construction community stating that a monorail hoist is significantly different from other cranes and derricks in construction work.

Under the new policy, OSHA will not cite employers for failing to meet the requirements if they meet the requirements of the overhead hoists and general training standards.

"This enforcement policy is a common-sense approach to addressing industry concerns while also ensuring workers are protected," said Dean McKenzie, director of OSHA's Directorate of Construction.
