Cranes - Approved Code of Practice (ACOP)

Approved Code of Practice (ACOP) for cranes. Includes the design, manufacture, supply, safe operation, maintenance and inspection of cranes.

This code has been prepared by representatives of the crane and inspection industries and the Department of Labour. The purpose of the code is to support the requirements of the Health and Safety in Employment (Pressure Equipment, Cranes, and Passenger Ropeways) Regulations 1999 and the Health and Safety in Employment Regulations 1995. References in this code to "regulations" mean the Health and Safety in Employment (Pressure Equipment, Cranes, and Passenger Ropeways) Regulations 1999.

Adoption of this code will provide for an increased level of safety for all types of cranes covered by this document.

Proposals for changes to this code may be submitted to the Department of Labour for consideration by the industry group concerned.

Note: Operational matters such as site conditions, minimum distances from electrical conductors, operation of tower cranes and load-lifting gear are in the Crane Safety Manual for Operators/Users, obtainable from the Crane Association of New Zealand (Inc).
