NCCCO Publishes Employer Guides to New Crane Rule

The Employer Guides cover the training, certification, and evaluation requirements for crane operators under OSHA's final rule.

The National Commission for the Certification of Crane Operations has published three Employer Guides following the publication of OSHA's final rule on crane operator qualifications and the Nov. 10 deadline for U.S. crane operators to be certified.

NCCCO's Employer Guides cover the training, certification, and evaluation requirements for crane operators under the final rule. NCCCO CEO Graham Brent said the guides follow the language of the rule but use a Q&A format to make the information more easily accessible. "Since OSHA has identified a three-step process to achieving qualification as a crane operator, it seemed to make sense to create individual guides for each," Brent said.

Employers can submit any questions the guides don't address to NCCCO at info@nccco.org. Further resources are available at the organization's OSHA Crane Rule Resource Center.
