Digger derrick operators need a wide range of skills and equipment knowledge to competently and safely dig holes, set poles and lift loads, especially around energized lines and equipment. “Basic Training for Digger and Truck Mounted Crane Operators” – a manual from the Institute for Safety in Powerline Construction (ISPC) – is a newly developed, comprehensive tool that will become a reference guide for digger derrick operators throughout their careers. OSHA regulation snapshots reinforce industry best practices throughout the manual, which also includes an operator field performance requirements checklist.
