§ 25.76. Operation.
(a) Signals. Locomotive cranes shall not be moved except upon a signal from the authorized signalman. The regularly employed switchman shall give all signals to the operator. If signalmen or switchmen are not employed, an operator may not move a crane except under orders of the foreman of the department in which the crane is operating.
(b) Swinging of cranes. A locomotive crane may not be swung across a railroad track or into a position that cars moving on another track would strike it, until the craneman and signalman have made sure that cars are not being moved on the adjacent track.
(c) Passing buildings or structures. When passing by corners of buildings or structures, the crane operator shall exercise care to insure that the crane is parallel with the truck.
(d) Moving crane about yard. When moving a crane about the yard, the operator shall see that the boom is carried low enough to clear all overhead wires.
(e) Moving couplings. No one except an authorized person may be allowed to make couplings or throw a switch.
(f) Suspended weight. When weight is suspended from the crane hook, the operator may not leave his position at the levers for any purpose.
