Dear Mr. Grace:
This is in response to your letter of July 24, requesting clarification of 29 CFR 1926.550(b)(2) as it relates to the point of instability of a crane.
As discussed with you in a telephone conversation with a member of my staff, any "breakaway" of the outrigger would place the crane from stability to point of instability. We have coordinated this answer with the State of Arizona Division of Occupational Safety and Health.
If we can be of further assistance, please contact us again.
John B. Miles, Jr., Director
Directorate of Field Operations
