OSHA Grants Compliance Extension
OSHA has received feedback from the construction industry indicating some employers may need more time to document evaluations of crane operators prior to the February 7, 2019, effective date. During the first 60 days of enforcement (until April 15, 2019), OSHA will evaluate good faith efforts taken by employers in their attempt to meet the new documentation requirements for operators of cranes used in construction.

New Law Takes Effect Requiring All Crane Operators to be Certified
Following the November 9, 2018, publication in the Federal Register of the Final Rule for the qualification of crane operators, OSHA has provided further guidance and clarification on the effective dates of its new qualification requirements for crane operators. The two most important dates to be aware of are:
• November 10, 2018—Crane operators must be certified. Certifications may be by type alone and must be issued by an accredited certifying body such as NCCCO.
• February 7, 2019—Employers must evaluate their crane operators according to specified criteria and a stipulated process.
For more information on the new law and Federal OSHA requirements, visit NCCCO’s website. There you can find resources that explain the difference between certification and qualification, and the new employer’s guide to operator training, certification and evaluation.
There has never been a better time to get certified! Call 888-957-7277 for more information.
