TAKE ACTION ON OSHA’S CRANE SAFETY TRAINING CERTIFICATION REQUIREMENT NOW!
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires that all crane operators in construction industries (like sign installation) be certified by November 10, 2018. Planning ahead will enable your sign business to get the training and certification needed at the lowest cost and with the smallest disruption to staff and workflow. Here’s what you need to start thinking about to comply with the Crane Operator Certification rule that came into effect on November 10, 2018.
Rule Implementation: November 10, 2018
What do you need to do to comply with the Crane Operator Certification rule that came into effect on November 10, 2018?
Crane operators need to obtain certification from a recognized accreditation body or hold a valid license from one of the 16 states/7 cities that have requirements for crane operators. Certification or licensing both involve passing an examination administered by a third-party.
TRAINING PREPARES EMPLOYEES TO PASS THE CERTIFICATION REQUIREMENTS
Training for the test isn’t required. Passing the certification requirement is, and passing isn’t likely without preparation. Test prep training greatly increases the exam passage rate.
Start scheduling training now to spread out training for multiple employees. As the deadline arrived and enforcement ramps up, more affected employers are signing up for the training and the certification exams.
