ICSA best practice guides nearing completion

Two new best practice guides for the crane industry have moved a step closer to publication after the latest meeting of the International Crane Stakeholders Assembly (ICSA) which took place online in February.

Final touches are being put to the long-awaited best practice guide on the safe use of mobile cranes on barges and work is also nearing completion on a guidance paper on mobile crane ground preparation for wind farm construction. Both papers are expected to be officially released before the second half of 2021. Work has also started on a new best practice guide on the use of mobile cranes in pile driving and extraction work. 

The ICSA has seven crane user and manufacturer association members from Australia, Canada, Europe, Japan and the USA. Further information can be found on the ESTA website or at www.icsa-crane.org
