OSHA Requires All Crane Operators Get Certified
Three years ago, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration issued a final ruling stating that it would extend the original deadline (November 2014) requiring all U.S. crane operators to become certified by three years, to November 2017. With November not far off, it appears that OSHA may decide to grant an additional one-year extension.
The National Commission for the Certification of Crane Operators (NCCCO) has publicly voiced its support for the deadline extension. NCCCO’s letter to OSHA can be viewed here.
According to reports, on June 20th, 2017 the Advisory Committee on Construction Safety and Health (ACCSH) ruled unanimously in favor of OSHA’s proposed one-year extension. It is now anticipated that OSHA will release a revised final ruling sometime during the Summer of 2017 explaining that the enforcement date for mandatory crane operator certification will be extended by one year. This means all crane operators must now become certified by November 2018 in order to continue working within the United States.
