OSHA Issues Proposed Rule to Extend Certification Compliance Date
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration issued a long-awaited proposed rule on Friday, February 7, 2014, that would extend the compliance date for its crane operator certification requirement by three years to Nov. 10, 2017. The proposal would also extend to the same date the existing phase-in requirement that employers ensure that their operators are qualified to operate the equipment. The 30-day comment period opens Monday, February 10.
See the official OSHA press release here
This announcement does not remove the requirement for employers to ensure that all crane operators, who are not yet certified, are properly trained in accordance with §1926.1427(j). [See §1926.1431(c)(2)]
CICB Employee Receives Top Trainer Award
Angelo Alverio, a very successful bi-lingual trainer and inspector employed by Crane Inspection & Certification Bureau (CICB), has recently received the Professional Top Trainer 2013 Award sponsored by the Association of Crane & Rigging Professional (ACRP) and the Crane and Rigging Hotline. Nominees are judged by use of innovative or hands-on instruction, encouraging peer or corporate accountability, evidence that the training was successful, and the overall impact on the students, environment or industry. CICB instructors have also received Top Trainer Awards in 2009, 2011 and 2012.
"Organizations are linking learning to performance and the bottom line, understanding that a highly skilled, knowledgeable workforce is critical to achieving growth and success” said Jerry Longtin, a 2009 Top Trainer and General Manager of CICB. All of our professionally trained instructors and subject matter experts are not only NCCCO Certified as Mobile, Overhead & Articulating Crane Operators, but are also CCO Certified Riggers, Signalpersons, and Crane Inspectors. We understand and follow the Learning Pyramid, where 75 to 90% of students learn more by participating in hands-on training.
