    TOWER CRANE NOTIFICATION REGISTER WEBSITE

    HSE explain how information on tower crane register will accessed by public

    The new Notification of Conventional Tower Cranes Regulations are now in force and a Crane Register website has now been established by HSE.

    The register forms part of a package of measures with HSE and the construction industry continuing to work closely to address issues around tower cranes such as improving the competence of installers/operators and improving design.

    Information released limited to that notified

    POSTER DUTY HOLDER CAN USE TO ADVISE PUBLIC THAT TOWER CRANES ON SITE HAVE BEEN NOTIFIED TO HSE

    The information obtainable from the Crane Register will be “limited to that which can be derived from the information which is notified”. Within these limits HSE will seek to “make available as much information as possible”.

    Relatively straightforward requests (such as whether a particular crane on particular site has been registered) will be dealt with by directly responding to the enquirer by phone or email.

    More complicated requests (eg seeking information about the number of notifications in a particular area) will be considered under the Freedom of Information Act 2000, the Data Protection Act 1998 and/or the Environmental Information Regulations 2004.

    Most information requests to be dealt with in 5 days

    The time HSE takes to respond will depend on the nature of the request. For straightforward requests (such as whether a particular crane on particular site has been registered) HSE will aim to respond within 5 working days of receipt.

    In cases where it appears that the crane has not been registered (but the crane has only very recently been installed), HSE will need to wait 14 days before responding to allow time for the dutyholder to notify.

    More complicated requests will be considered under the Freedom of Information Act 2000, the Data Protection Act 1998 and/or the Environmental Information Regulations 2004 and a response will be provided within 20 working days of receipt unless extra time to respond is needed.
