OSHA Issues Final Rule to Delay Deadline for Crane Operator Certification

OSHA has issued a final rule to delay the deadline for employers to ensure that crane operators are certified and competent to November 10, 2018. By delaying the deadline for employers to ensure that crane operators are certified by one year, and by extending the employer duty to ensure crane operators are competent until that same date, the rule avoids disrupting the construction industry and allows OSHA time to complete a related crane standard rulemaking addressing these and other issues.
