OHSA will no longer recognize crane operator test certifications issued by Crane Institute Certification ( CIC ).
In the statement released on Monday, OSHA said they will no longer accept CIC certification (including recertification) issued on or after December 2, 2019.
The statement gave this reason, “OSHA requires crane operators engaged in construction activity to be certified by an entity accredited by a nationally recognized accrediting agency. CIC no longer holds such accreditation.”
OSHA has no plans to cite employers if their operator(s) have received the certification before December 2nd, 2019.
