Part 37 Oil and Gas Wells

Section 759 Overloaded service rig trucks

Instead of complying with the manufacturer’s specifications requirements of section 12 of the OHS Code, service rig trucks that exceed their manufacturer-specified load weights can be operated if

(a) a written hazard assessment meeting the requirements of Part 2 has been completed, and
(b) controls that ensure safe operation of the service rig truck have been implemented.

The assessment and controls do not need to be reviewed by a Director of Inspection prior to being implemented. If an officer inspects a work site and considers the assessment or controls insufficient, then the assessment and controls may need to be reviewed by a Director or Inspection.
