Crane operators are required to be certified by November 10, 2018. OSHA 2010 standard 29 CFR 1926.1427 gave the construction industry eight years to certify all crane and derrick operators. Assure you pass your certification exams. Prepare with Ridgewater College!
May 21, 2018—As expected, OSHA has removed from its rule the requirement for crane operators to be certified according to the capacity of the crane, a decision supported by the overwhelming majority of industry stakeholders at meetings hosted by OSHA and others since the rule was first published in 2010.
In its Proposed Rule published today, OSHA also lays out plans to address the other major issue on which industry had raised concerns, that of what, if anything, an employer’s duty should be over and above operator certification.
