Oregon has adopted the federal rules for crane and derrick operations in construction and has adopted its own rules for crane operator licensing, fall protection, and minimum clearances for direct current (DC) power lines that are stricter than federal rules. The state has also adopted crane operator training and training documentation requirements that are stricter than federal rules for cranes used in construction.
Oregon Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OR-OSHA) administers the rules for cranes and derricks in construction requirements in the state.
CRANE OPERATOR TRAINING DOCUMENTATION
OR Admin. Rules 437-003-0081
In addition to having completed basic operator training requirements, all employees engaged in construction work who operate cranes of 5-ton capacity or greater must have additional training and experience and possess a valid crane operator's safety training card issued by a training provider or employer.
