The latest meeting of the International Crane Stakeholders Assembly took place online in November. Final touches are being put to the long-awaited and detailed best practice guide on the safe use of mobile cranes on barges before its publication early next year.
Delegates also decided to start work on a new best practice guide on the use of mobile cranes in pile driving and extraction work. Any ESTA members interested in contributing to this work are invited to contact the ESTA office.
The International Crane Stakeholders Assembly’s role is to promote the harmonization of international standards and share information on safety, technical and regulatory issues. The ICSA has seven crane user and manufacturer members from Australia, Canada, Europe, Japan and the USA. Further information can be found on the ESTA website or at https://icsa-crane.org
