California's Development of Safety Standards for Heavy Earthmoving Equipment 710695

California established the Division of Industrial Safety to develop and enforce safety standards for the workmen in places of employment. Many safety standards have been developed which included roll-over protective structures for heavy earthmoving equipment. When it is determined that a need exists for a new safety order such as Construction Safety Order 1596, which requires roll-over protective structures for heavy earthmoving equipment, the Division thoroughly analyzes the engineering, education, and enforcement procedures and techniques as they develop the state safety standard. At the present time, the Division is investigating the need for safety standards pertaining to environmental control for the operators of equipment used in construction.
