    OSHA Crane Operator Certification Deadline Extension

    On November 9, 2017, OSHA published the last Rule delaying its deadline date for crane operators to be certified by February 07, 2019 with proof of documentation. OSHA can be expanding its employer responsibility to make sure that crane operators are competent to operate a crane safely to exactly the exact same one-year period. The Rule takes effect instantly.

    The notice, which includes just one day before the certification deadline was expected to come into effect, follows publication of a Proposed Rule in August which OSHA announced its plans for a crane certification deadline extension by one year.

    OSHA considers that an additional season will probably be adequate to accomplish work with fixing both problems that have concerned industry ever since the crane rule was published this summer; especially, whether operators will need to be authorized by type and capacity, or just by type; and whether an operator certification is adequate by itself to exude an operator qualified to use a crane. OSHA also notes that it will be unjust to companies to apply the crane certification requirement “before completing the separate rulemaking to alter those criteria.”

    All crane operators must currently working within the United States must be qualified by the deadline of February 07, 2019.
