OSHA Issues Proposed Rule to Extend Compliance Deadline for Crane Operator Certification Requirements

On August 30, 2017, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) issued a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking 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 will submit comments—due Sept. 29, 2017—in favor of the extension.  OSHA’s press release can be found here.
