OSHA propsing 1 year extension for Crane Operator CertificationPosted on Aug 31 in Member Blog
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) today issued a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking to extend the employer’s responsibility to ensure crane operator competency and enforcement for crane operator certification to Nov. 10, 2018.
OSHA issued a final rule in September 2014, extending the deadline by three years for crane operator certification requirements in the Cranes and Derricks in Construction standard.
The final rule also extended by three years, to November 10, 2017, the employer’s responsibility to ensure that crane operators are competent to operate a crane safely.
The agency is now proposing an extension of the enforcement date to address stakeholder concerns over the operator certification requirements in the Cranes and Derricks in Construction standard.
