Talk about a powerful signal—in November 2010, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) launched 1926 Subpart CC, one of its most rigorous safety standards. This standard, which includes 1926.1419-1422 and 1428, requires that all workers who signal a crane must meet an extensive set of requirements. As a result, employers of signal persons have felt the responsibility to review their practices, both for compliance and as a common-sense check that their employees are operating at their very best.
But how do you know if you are truly achieving these goals? Too much is at stake to leave anything to assumptions or guesswork.
