The U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) , proposed a rule in May 2018 to revise certification requirements as recommended by construction stakeholders, has now issued guidance on how to comply with crane operator certification requirements until the Final Rulebecomes effective.
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.
