News (Immediate Release)

OSHA's New Crane Rule

IMPORTANT: On September 26, 2014, OSHA published a final rule that extends the deadline for crane operator certification in the cranes standard at 29 CFR 1926.1427 for 3 years, to November 10, 2017 (published in the Federal Register). The proposed changes also extend the employer's duty to ensure that operators are competent to operate the crane safely for the same three year period. During this extension, OSHA will consider addressing operator qualification through additional rulemaking.  OSHA will provide updated information about the crane operator certification and qualification requirements as it becomes available on OSHA's Cranes and Derricks Safety page.

The Department of Labor and Industrial Relations, Occupational Safety and Health Division administers the rules for crane and derricks in construction, including crane operator licensing requirements.


Hoisting machine (i.e., a machine with a hoist line, sling, or hydraulic lifting mechanism used in construction, demolition, or excavation work) operators of equipment covered by American Society of Mechanical Engineers Safety (ASME) Standard B30.5 that has a lifting capacity of more than 5 tons, and who perform construction work, must be certified to operate such equipment. Each hoisting machine operator must carry a valid certificate during the operation of a hoisting machine.


A hoisting machine operator certificate is not required for operator assistants, apprentices, oilers, assistants to the engineers, and trainees, provided they are under the direct supervision of a certified hoisting machine operator at all times while operating a hoisting machine and they meet the training requirements of ASME B30.5.
