November 21, 2018—Following the publication of OSHA’s Final Rule on crane operator qualifications, and the triggering, on November 10, of the requirement for crane operators to be certified nationwide, NCCCO has published three Employer Guides, one each on the training, certification, and evaluation requirements covered by the Rule.
The Guides adhere to the language of the Rule, but the Q&A format employed is designed to make the information more accessible, said NCCCO CEO, Graham Brent. “Since OSHA has identified a three-step process to achieving qualification as a crane operator, it seemed to make sense to create individual Guides for each,” he said. Employers are encouraged to submit any questions not addressed in the Guides to NCCCO at firstname.lastname@example.org.
