Crane Operator Evaluation
OSHA’s Crane Operator Evaluation Requirement Effective Date is February 7, 2019
As you should be aware, OSHA’s new Crane Rule became effective on November 10, 2018. Part of that rule involves the requirement for the employer to train and evaluate its crane operators in addition to those operators being Certified.
- To be a “Qualified Operator” under the new OSHA rule, the operator must be certified and evaluated.
- Operators who have not been certified and evaluated are considered “Operators-in-Training.”
- Operators-in-Training cannot operate without supervision.
- Operators-in-Training must be monitored at all times by a trainer who meets established criteria.
Associated Training Services (ATS) and ATS Specialized can help you meet both of these requirements. ATS has been training, certifying and evaluating equipment operators since 1959. Let ATS help you develop your operator certification and evaluation programs to ensure you are in compliance with all of the requirements of the new OSHA crane rule.
