BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.
To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.
To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.
Crane operators may need to pursue new certification to remain compliant under the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s crane operator regulations.
Certifications issued by Sanford, Florida-based Crane Institute of America Certification LLC for crane operators engaged in construction activities are no longer valid because the CIC is no longer considered a nationally recognized accrediting agency, OSHA reported in a recent statement.
However, to avoid potential disruptions of construction crane project, OSHA said it will not cite employers for worker performed by crane operators holding CIC-issued certifications that were obtained prior to Dec. 2, 2019, if those crane operators acquired the certification with the good faith belief that it met government standards. OSHA will not accept CIC certifications or re-certifications issued on or after Dec. 2, 2019, said the agency.
An administrative law judge of the Occupational Safety and Health Review Commission affirmed a citation and $12,675 penalty assessed against a general contractor for a fatal crane accident.
