OSHA Overhead Hoist Operator Requirements?
Per OSHA 1910.179, employers must use designated personnel to operate overhead cranes and hoists. “Designated” means selected or assigned by the employer or the employer’s representative as qualified to perform specific duties. Additionally, qualified riggers are required whenever workers are within the fall zone and hooking, unhooking, guiding a load, or making the initial connection to a component or structure.
