    City Tightens Its Regulation and Inspection of Cranes - By WILLIAM NEUMAN, New York Times
    The Buildings Department said a city inspector will now have to be present every time a crane is erected, jumped or dismantled.

    It also said it will require the project engineer who submitted the original permit application for a crane to produce a “written protocol” for each jump, including guidelines for how the work should be done. The engineer will have to inspect the crane to certify that it was built and assembled according to plans.

    In addition, the department said it will require the lead contractor to hold a safety meeting with workers involved before each jumping operation. A Buildings Department inspector must monitor that meeting.
