OSHA Issues Proposed Rule Extending Crane Operator Compliance Date

The proposed rule would extend the compliance date to Nov. 10, 2017

According to a press release from OSHA, the organization has issued a proposed rule to extend the compliance date for the crane operator certification requirement by three years. The proposed rule would extend the date to November 10, 2017, while also extending the existing phase-in requirement that employers ensure that their operators are qualified to use the equipment to the same date.

In August 2010, OSHA issued a final standard on requirements for cranes and derricks in construction work that requires a crane operator on a construction site to meet one of four qualification/certification options by November 10, 2014. A number of parties raised concern about the date, and after several public meetings, OSHA has decided to extend the enforcement date, according to the press release. OSHA proposed extending the date so that the certification requirements do not take effect during potential rulemaking.
