WAC 296-155-53214

Crane decertification and reinstatement.

(1) If any of the following occur, the certification becomes invalid and must be inspected by an accredited crane certifier:
(a) Contact with an energized power line;
(b) Any overload, other than proof load testing, or one that has been approved in writing in advance by the crane manufacturer or a RPE;
(c) Any significant modifications or significant repairs of a load sustaining/bearing part that affects the safe operation of the crane/derrick.
(d) Any deficiency that affects the safe operation of the crane or derrick that has been identified by a qualified person or through an inspection by the department of labor and industries.
Note:
Replacement of hoisting rope does not constitute decertification.
(2) The owner or lessee must notify the crane certification section by phone, 360-902-4943, or fax 360-902-5438, or email at lnicranes@lni.wa.gov within 24 hours if any of the above occurs.
(3) The certification may be reinstated only after affected components have been reinspected by an accredited crane certifier. If the accredited crane certifier identifies any deficiencies during the reinspection, the deficiencies must be corrected before the certification can be reinstated. If the accredited crane certifier believes proof load testing should be conducted prior to reinstatement of the certification, proof load testing must be conducted. In the case of major modifications or repairs to important load sustaining/bearing parts, proof load testing must be performed prior to reinstatement. The accredited crane certifier must notify the department that the certification has been reinstated.
