If the operation in which equipment is engaged never utilizes more than a fraction of the safe working load rating, the owner of such equipment may have the crane or derrick certificated for and operated at a lesser maximum safe working load in keeping with the use and based on radius and other pertinent factors; provided, however, that the equipment concerned is physically capable of operation at the load rating and load reduction is not for the purpose of avoiding correction of any deficiency. Load rating charts shall be changed accordingly.
