Title:Guidance to crane users on the crane notification process and obstacle lighting and marking
Description:CAP 1096 provides guidance to crane users on the crane notification process and lighting and marking requirements applicable to cranes. In the main, crane-related issues are considered and managed in much the same way as for any tall object, however due to the distinctive character of the crane construction and operations, they are addressed separately.

The guidance should be considered relevant to users of all cranes exceeding a height of 10 m above ground level (AGL) or that of the surrounding structures or trees (if higher). This guidance is currently under trial and overview dates for this trial are shown below. Unless specifically as requested and approved to take part in the trial, please use the guidance found at the linked web page.
