OSHA Backs NCCER’s Certification Program

Text size: A A

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration now has four crane-operator certification programs it formally recognizes, following an agreement with the National Center for Construction Education and Research, Gainesville, Fla. A signing ceremony for the OSHA-NCCER agreement was held on May 17. In March, OSHA finalized a similar agreement with The Crane Institute of America Certification Inc. OSHA’s first such crane-operator program agreement came in 1999, with the National Commission for the Certification of Crane Operators. The agency also signed an agreement in 2008 with the Operating Engineers Certification Program. Crane safety has become a priority for OSHA, the construction industry and labor groups following several fatal accidents in 2008. OSHA is aiming to issue a major new crane-safety regulation in July.
