The new OSHA requirements for crane operator certification officially take effect Dec. 9, 2018. OSHA will require crane operators to be certified to operate most cranes that have a lifting capacity of 2,000 pounds or more.
Precast manufacturers who use monorail hoists, also referred to as A-frame cranes, will not be required to certify operators of those vehicles. Certification must be issued by an accredited crane operator certification organization.
NCCCO has recently released a new Telescopic Boom-Swing Cab Restricted (TLL-R) operator certification program for operators of boom trucks with short booms. It was developed specifically for operators of the type of crane commonly used in the precast concrete industry.
