OSHA doesn’t come right out and state what the qualifications are for an overhead crane inspector. However, there are is some useful information in the standard around what OSHA calls a “designed person.”
Section 29 CFR 1910.179(a) defines designated as “selected or assigned by the employer or the employer’s representative as being qualified to perform specific duties.”
