NCCCO Issues “Top Ten” FAQs on OSHA’s Rule Reopening Plans

NCCCOFollowing the decision by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to extend the effective date of its crane operator certification rule to allow it time to address industry concerns over issues such as “certifying by capacity,” the National Commission for the Certification of Crane Operators (NCCCO) has issued a “Top Ten” list of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) and answers.

“NCCCO is pleased to provide this guidance as a public service,” said NCCCO Executive Director, Graham Brent. “Based on the questions we have received already, it’s clear there is substantial confusion as to why OSHA is extending the deadline, and to what purpose.”

Publication of the Top Ten list was an attempt to “calm fears, ease frustration, and contribute to a better understanding of OSHA’s motives,” Brent said.

The Top Ten FAQs can be accessed at NCCCO’s Rule Reopening Resource Center.
