Construction site safety will likely improve with new bill

Posted Monday, March 12, 2007 by Ed Harper

Washington State legislators agree on a construction crane safety bill. In a rare move labor and management officials in the construction industry provided support for this new bill. Initially, the bill would have applied to both manufacturing cranes as well as construction cranes. However, after Boeing and Weyerhaueser both petitioned the legislature.

The legislation will cost the state an estimated $5.0 million from 2007 to 2013 and require L&I to open a crane safety division. Part of L&I’s new mandate requires the State of Washington to certify crane operators, something which is long over-due.

Washington now has upgraded safety for its citizens in regards to crane operations.
