OSHA Proposes an Extension for Crane Certification Deadline

OSHA has just proposed another delay for the implementation of crane certifications.  The proposal was issued to address stakeholder concerns over the operator certification requirements in the Cranes and Derricks in Construction standard.  The proposed rule was issued by the Agency on August 30, 2017. The previous extension by OSHA pushed the deadline for crane operators to be certified under the standard for cranes and derricks from November 2014 to November 10, 2017. However, with this latest proposal, OSHA is seeking to move the deadline to November 17, 2018. Until November 10, 2017, or (if the extension proposal is approved) November 17, 2018 employers are still required to ensure that crane operators are trained and competent to operate the crane safely.
