July 2012 - All newly CCO-certified crane operators now receive a Crane Operator Experience Log Book from the National Commission for the Certification of Crane Operators (NCCCO). The log book, which is provided free of charge within a few weeks of notification of certification, is designed to provide operators with a convenient and centralized place to record their seat time and details of their crane experience.
While use of the log book is optional, it may assist operators in recording the 1,000 hours of crane experience required for recertification, said NCCCO Executive Director, Graham Brent.
The convenient, pocket-sized log book features one-week-to-a-view pages for the tracking of jobs, locations, cranes used, daily hours, and other information during a 12-month period. The book also has space to record personal information and CCO certifications, as well as emergency medical data and contacts.
A bonus section provides key references from OSHA 29 CFR 1926 Subpart CC, including power line safety guidelines, a list of crane types covered under Subpart CC, and OSHA standard hand signals. Important NCCCO contacts and information resources are also listed.
NCCCO's Crane Operator Experience Log books are also available for purchase for $1.49 each using this log book order form (PDF format, revised 02/14). Orders of 100 or more log books receive a 15% discount.
