Why is November 9, 2017 an important date for crane owners?
This is the effective date for crane operators, to be certified to operate a crane or derrick with a rated capacity over 2000lbs.
PLEASE NOTE: there may be a potential one-year delay to the OSHA crane operator certification November 2017 deadline. Last month, an OSHA advisory panel held a public hearing. They voted to recommend that OSHA extend the compliance deadline to November, 2018.
