Guarantee OSHA Compliance through independent evaluation of personnel
In February 2019 OSHA introduced the mandate that employers evaluate every crane operator to ensure they are qualified.
The ruling is recorded under the Cranes and Derricks in Construction Standard in 29 CFR 1926 Subpart CC.
It establishes that it is the employer’s responsibility to ensure that each Mobile Crane Operator is
Trained to operate the crane type(s) for which certification will be issued;
Has obtained certification/licensing in accordance with Subpart CC
By the employer to ensure they can safely operate the equipment that will be used.
As part of its update to Subpart CC, OSHA ruled that the employer must evaluate the crane operator using an individual,
“who has the knowledge, training, and experience necessary to assess equipment operators.” [1926.1427(f)(4)]
Recognizing that not everyone has an employee that meets these requirements, OSHA also allows for an agent of the employer to conduct these evaluations.

The material is well-organized and the training is presented in a clear and concise manner. The classroom instruction and actual hands-on training go beyond our expectations. Our employees leave the class with a better understanding of crane operation, their capabilities, and job safety.”
This class was one of the best I have ever coordinated for our employees! Jason was, by far, the best instructor I have ever seen present an extremely technical course. His personality was perfect for the audience and made him very relatable. His technical proficiency was exemplary! He is completely capable of and, for the most part, did teach the entire class without referring to the slides or reference material. He also went way above and beyond in his commitment to ensuring the students not only learned but retained the material and stayed late into each evening to assist those requiring additional assistance. The employees could not say enough great things about Jason's skills and commitment to learning. We now have 10 employees trained to operate our cranes and, even though the majority of them do not work together, a group of employees that overcame some adversity and became a cohesive team. They are begging me to bring the CICB back!”
The Instructor Larry Kime is absolutely one of the best instructors I have ever had, and I have a degree in mechanical engineering. Larry’s knowledge both written and practical is current and accessible. I would recommend Larry to a new beginner or someone that has been in the lifting industry their whole career
