OSHA Crane Operator Certification Requirement Extended

AGC Supports OSHA’s Final Rule & Year-Long Extension
On Nov. 9, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) issued a final rule to further extend the employer's responsibility to ensure crane operator competency and enforcement for crane operator certification from Nov. 10, 2017 to Nov. 10, 2018. During this time, OSHA will work to address stakeholder concerns over the operator certification requirements in the 2010 Cranes and Derricks in Construction Standard. AGC submitted comments on the initial proposal in favor of the extension, which will avoid any potential disruption in crane operations on construction sites.
