In OSHA’s document “Mobile Crane Inspection Guidelines for OSHA Compliance Officers,” OSHA states: “A crane’s load rating is generally developed for operations under ideal conditions, i.e., a level firm surface. Unlevel surfaces or soft ground therefore must be avoided. In areas where soft ground poses a support problem for stability, mats and or blocking should be used to distribute a crane’s load and maintain a level stable condition.”
