Dear Mr. Lovgren:

Thank you for your letter of March 12, inviting the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to participate in the development of increasing safety use of cranes.

We, in OSHA, wholeheartedly endorse the aims of your Subcommittee in standardizing the use, operation and maintenance of cranes and related equipment because we strongly believe that it will enhance the safety of those employees who work with and around such equipment.

Unfortunately, because of limited resources, OSHA cannot actively participate in this activity at the international level. We would, however, be willing to provide some limited assistance here in the United States of America.

If this limited assistance would be helpful, we would be happy to discuss this matter further with you. Thank you for your very obvious interest in occupational safety and health.

Sincerely,



Gerard F. Scannell
Assistant Secretary
