|OSHA requirements are set by statute, standards and regulations. Our interpretation letters explain these requirements and how they apply to particular circumstances, but they cannot create additional employer obligations. This letter constitutes OSHA's interpretation of the requirements discussed.|
Selected or assigned by the employer or the employer's representative as being qualified to perform specific duties [emphasis added].Because the term "qualified" is not itself defined, OSHA would interpret "qualified" in light of operator-qualifications provisions of industry standards such as ANSI B30.2. Although the 1910.178 training requirements do not apply, you may also find it useful to consult that standard when developing a training or evaluation program for "travel lift" operators.
