Have You Heard About the DOB’s New Crane Location Registration Rules?
To complete your NYC construction projects on time and budget, it is crucial to comply with DOB rules and regulations. The DOB has updated their rules to include crane location registration. In short, here’s what you need to know:
- As of June 1st, crane companies working in the 5 boroughs must inform the city of:
- Where the cranes will be located.
- How long the crane will be on site.
- What the cranes will be doing on site.
Operating cranes must receive annual inspection and have the proof of this inspection.
- A city DOB inspector can check at any time to ensure that the crane location information submitted matches what’s happening on the job site. Equally important, the new system can check that a crane on a site has proper documentation as well. In short, if everything is not as it should be, the DOB inspector can issue a Stop Work Order, which will delay your project and can result in expensive fines.
Expertise You Can Trust
Choosing a crane and rigging company in NYC means choosing a compliant company operating with all DOB regulations to keep your project free from unnecessary delays and expenses. With this in mind, the DOB doesn’t go out of its way to make sure all crane companies are aware of regulation changes. As a matter of fact, they consider it the duty of the crane companies to proactively inform themselves of what the rules are and comply. In light of this, a company caught off guard makes expensive mistakes. That’s why the L&M Crane and Rigging team makes a point of staying fully informed of all current DOB and TA rules and regulations.
