OSHA wants to delay by one year its mandate for construction crane operator certification, the agency announced June 6.
In May, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration announced it intended to delay the Nov. 10 deadline for third-party certification of operators (29 C.F.R. Subpart CC), but didn’t say how long the delay would be.
Before OSHA can issue a rule extending the deadline, the proposal must be reviewed by the agency’s Advisory Committee on Construction Safety and Health (ACCSH). During a June 20 teleconference with the committee, OSHA officials will present their proposal and hear committee and public comment on setting a new date (RIN:1218-AC96).
Work on revising qualification requirements began during the Obama administration following complaints from contractors, crane owners and operators that certification should be based only on the type of crane, not the type and lifting capacity as the current rule requires.
The dial-in number for the meeting is (888) 604-9368, and the passcode is 8521818.
People interested in making presentations must make their requests by June 9. Submit requests and documents at http://www.regulations.gov, and reference Docket No. OSHA-2017-0007.
