OSHA Cranes & Derricks Rule

Use a Spotter When Operating Heavy Equipment

Use a spotterA dedicated spotter helps you stay clear of overhead lines.

No equipment operator working alone can safely judge the distance from the equipment to overhead power lines. A spotter on the ground has a much better view.

Make sure your spotter is not doing double duty by spotting and guiding a load at the same time. Your spotter's only job should be to keep you and your equipment a safe distance from overhead power lines and other hazards.

Crane and Derrick Operators!
Don't raise or move a load near power lines without a dedicated, qualified spotter.

Lives depend on you. Make spotting and clear communication with the equipment operator your top priority.
