    Fairfax, VA – The National Commission for the Certification of Crane Operators recently issued answers to 10 frequently asked questions regarding OSHA’s plans to delay the effective date for new crane certification requirements.

    The requirements originally were scheduled to go into effect in November 2014. However, on May 22, OSHA proposed extending the deadline to November 2017 to give the agency time to possibly pursue a rulemaking addressing stakeholder concerns about language in the rule.

    Topics NCCCO covers include why OSHA has taken this action, whether the organization’s certifications will still be valid and what would happen if OSHA re-opens the rule.
