OSHA Published Final Rule For Crane Operators

OSHA Published Final Rule For Crane Operators

The U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) published a final rule that, will maintain safety and health protections for crane operators while reducing compliance burdens.

Under the final rule, employers are required to train crane operators as needed to perform assigned crane activities, evaluate them and document successful completion of the evaluations.

Employers who have assessed operators before December 9, 2018, will not need to conduct those tests again, but will simply have to document when those tests were completed.

The last rule, with the exception of the evaluation and documentation needed, will become effective on Dec. 9, 2018. The evaluation and documentation requirements will become effective on February 7, 2019.

The principle also needs crane operators to be certified or accredited, and get ongoing training as required to operate new equipment. Operators can be accredited based on the crane's type and capacity, or kind only, which ensures that more accredited testing organizations are eligible to fulfill OSHA's certification application requirements.

The final rule revises a 2010 requirement that crane operator certificate must specify the rated capacity of cranes for the operator is certified. Compliant certifications that were issued by type and capacity continue to be acceptable under this final rule.

Under the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970, companies are responsible for providing safe and healthful workplaces for their employees.

OSHA's role is to help make sure these conditions for America's working women and men by setting and implementing standards and providing training, education, and assistance. For more information, visit
