OSHA Provides Interim Compliance Guidance for Crane Operators

Print Article Contributed by FSM Staff

WASHINGTON, DC -- The U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration has issued guidance on how to comply with crane operator certification requirements until the new final rule becomes effective.

OSHA proposed a rule in May 2018 to revise certification requirements, as recommended by construction stakeholders. OSHA is preparing to publish a final rule, but OSHA’s existing certification requirements will take effect on November 10, 2018, because OSHA’s final rule will not become effective prior to that date. The existing rule requires certification by crane type and lifting capacity. However, until the effective date of the new rule, once it is published, OSHA will accept operator certifications issued by type only, or by type and capacity.
