Part 19 Powered Mobile Equipment

Section 286 Pile hoisting

To prevent worker injury, the operator must ensure that pilings are not hoisted in the leads when

(a) workers not directly involved in the piling hoisting operation are on the superstructure, or
(b) within range of a falling pile.

Because of the potential for injury, workers must not remain on or ride on any load while it is being moved, raised, or lowered. Unless a worker is directly involved in the piling hoisting operation, the worker must not be on the superstructure or within range of a falling pile.
