August 2013 - NCCCO is once again planning a major presence at ConExpo, the 2014 edition of which will be held in Las Vegas, March 4-8, 2014. A highlight of the exhibit will be the reprise of the Lift Safety Zone (LSZ), which was such a hit at the 2011 event and which, once again, will be co-hosted by the International Powered Access Federation (IPAF) through its U.S. subsidiary, American Work Platform Training (AWPT).
For 2014, the LSZ moves to a prominent new location in Silver Lot 2, close by the monorail station that provides access to the ConExpo outdoor exhibits and a short walk from the North Hall Lobby. Here a further display will provide details about all CCO certification programs, including the new service truck crane and soon-to-be-launched boom truck certifications.
The “new, improved” Lift Safety Zone will again feature practical demonstrations of CCO operator, rigger and signalperson certification programs, highlighting the safety benefits of certification. Visitors will interact with crane safety experts and NCCCO staff to learn how CCO certifications are carefully developed using the most robust test development methods, while learning best practices for the crane and rigging industry. Nationally accredited and OSHA-recognized written and practical CCO exams, as well as Practical Examiner Accreditation Workshops, will be held before, during and after the show. A refocused ConExpo education program will feature sessions devoted to safe lifting practices. Stay tuned to learn more about NCCCO’s “Visit ConExpo, Leave Certified” program and other exhibits.
