Use of cranes in bad weather
(1) Every owner of a crane shall ensure that no crane of his is used under weather conditions likely to endanger its stability.
(2) Before a crane is taken into use after exposure to weather conditions likely to have affected the stability of the crane, the owner shall-
(a) cause the devices used for the anchoring or ballasting of the crane to be examined in the manner prescribed in regulation 7E(1) and cause the crane to be tested in the manner prescribed in regulation 7E(2), by a competent examiner as soon as practicable after such exposure and obtain a certificate in the approved form in which the competent examiner has made a statement to the effect that it is in safe working order; and (L.N. 23 of 1994)
(b) in the event of the anchorage or ballast being found on such test to be unsafe, take such steps as will again ensure the crane's stability as soon as practicable.
