Latest version.
  • The following standards shall be applicable to personnel/material hoists proposed to be installed and used within the incorporated and unincorporated areas of Miami-Dade County:


    The equipment manufacturers' (O.E.M.) specifications;


    The mandatory rules contained within the applicable ANSI standard (ANSI A10.4). Bridging devices may be used provided they meet manufacturers' specifications;


    The most current standards of the U.S. Department of Labor, Occupational Safety and Health Administration ("OSHA") applicable to cranes including 29 CFR 1926.552;


    The wind load standards contained within SEI/ASCE-7 for High Velocity Hurricane Zones as applied to the hoist tie-ins and the floor shoe connections. In applying the provisions of SEI/ASCE-7 for temporary installations, the design velocity reduction factors contained in SEI/ASCE 37-02 may be considered in factoring the wind speed at the discretion of the Building Official. The decision shall be made by the Building Official on a site-by-site basis. Factors to be considered include, but are not limited to, proximity to other structures, density, hoist location and other safety requirements.
