Crane Operator Evaluation Services
Crane Industry Services LLC (CIS) now offers training for employers who need to qualify individuals to do crane operator evaluations, according to new OSHA requirements. In addition, CIS staff can provide third-party crane operator evaluations to assist companies that need extra help getting them done.
During the first 60 days of enforcement (until April 15, 2019), OSHA will evaluate good-faith efforts taken by employers in their attempt to meet the new documentation requirements for operators of cranes used in construction.
A one-day Crane Site Safety class offered by CIS may now also include two additional days on-site devoted to instruction on how to evaluate an operator. On the second day of evaluation instruction, potential evaluators are observed performing the actual process.
The course reviews the OSHA documentation requirements and includes a checklist that evaluators can apply to different crane types and configurations that are commonly used in the employer’s fleet. The course also provides guidance for evaluators to determine if an operator is qualified to run the machine.
