ALERT: OSHA Proposed Operator Certification Extension Publish Date

Crane OperatorOSHA is proposing to extend the deadline for operator certification and employer duties by three years to November 10, 2017. The Notice of Proposed Rulemaking is set to be published Monday, February 10, 2014. The three year extension is to allow OSHA time to address the issue raised that crane operator certification is insufficient for determining whether operators can operate safely on construction sites.
