OSHA Now Extends Mobile Crane Operator Certification Deadline to Nov 2018
OSHA recently extended the Mobile Crane operator certification deadline from Nov 2017 to Nov 2018. It is the employer’s responsibility to ensure crane operators are competent and properly certified by November 10, 2018 for Construction.
The Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 states that employers are responsible for providing safe and healthful workplaces for their employers. This includes setting and enforcing standards, as well as providing proper training, education and assistance.
If your Mobile crane operators are not yet certified to be in compliance with these regulations, be sure to register all appropriate employees for crane operator training.
