Can anybody please give me a straight up answer on an exact date the new 2007 ASME B30.5 regulations take effect. Also when osha's C-DAC goes in effect. Every crane site and magazine i read praises the arrival of these but nobody even mentions a date of when they go into effect. One more thing, when does osha make it mandatory for crane signal persons to be certified by a third party to signal a crane? I sure hope soon. It's getting worse every day on these jobs.

Jason, this is the beginning of what Cal-OSHA has already implemented with the NCCO Crane operators certificates and requirement of certified riggers in California. I’m sure they’ll be a lot more changes and requirement to come. I recommend taking a look at the CICB New Letter @ http://www.cicb.com/news/documents/NationalNewsletterMay2008IndvPag...

And of course purchase a copy of ANSE B30-5 2007 and review it your self so you’ll know how to answer those tough question.

Good Luck, Ray
I am not sure on the ASME B30.5 but I attended a meeting of Crane Owners in Texas a few weeks ago and we were told that the C-DAC rules and regs will go into effect 90 days after August 9, 2010. As for the signal persons, I am pretty sure those are addressed in the C-DAC rules and regs. You can get the whole thing on the osha website where it addresses the specifics.
DATES: This final rule will become effective November 8, 2010. This is from the U.S Federal Register. The website is http://www.thefederalregister.com/d.p/2010-08-09-2010-17818

Jason, I really believe they have no clue! We suffer for it. I was just at the ASME site and found nothing concrete.

OSHA and Machine Guard Door Safety???

We have what we feel is not a unique situation and were wondering if anyone might of run across this challenge and know more about the requirements.  We are building a small machine system that includes some pneumatic components and some heated plates inside a small guard system.  We include emergency stops on the machine and if they are actuated it removes all electric current and dumps all air pressure from the machine.  We have several electrically interlocked doors that can be opened to…See More
