The HSE has launched guidance on complying with The Notification of Conventional Tower Cranes Regulations 2010 (the Regulations), which come into force on 6 April 2010. The Regulations themselves are still under consideration by ministers, but will be laid before parliament in March in preparation for enactment.
The register has been created following concerns over crane safety in Britain. Tower crane collapses have killed eight people in the past 10 years, including a member of the public, and injured many more.
