Snow Removal

Nationwide, snow shoveling is responsible for thousands of injuries and as many as 100 deaths each year.
Pushing a heavy snow blower can also cause injury. There is also the cold factor to consider. Cold weather can increase heart rate and blood pressure. It can make blood clot more easily and constrict arteries, which decreases blood supply. This is true even in healthy people. Individuals over the age of 40 or who are relatively inactive should be particularly careful.

NCCCO Publishes Employer Guides to the New Crane Rule

November 21, 2018—Following the publication of OSHA’s Final Rule on crane operator qualifications, and the triggering, on November 10, of the requirement for crane operators to be certified nationwide, NCCCO has published three Employer Guides, one each on the trainingcertification, and evaluation requirements covered by the Rule.

The Guides adhere to the language of the Rule, but the Q&A format employed is designed to make the information more accessible, said NCCCO CEO, Graham Brent. “Since OSHA has identified a three-step process to achieving qualification as a crane operator, it seemed to make sense to create individual Guides for each,” he said. Employers are encouraged to submit any questions not addressed in the Guides to NCCCO at info@nccco.org.

Further resources are available at NCCCO’s OSHA Resource Center.

OSHA has announced a final rule aimed at

OSHA has announced a final rule aimed at clarifying requirements for crane requirements.
The rule maintains the employer’s duty to ensure that crane operators can safely operate the equipment and maintains safety and health protections for workers while reducing compliance burdens.
Companies are required to train operators as needed to perform assigned crane activities, evaluate them and document successful completion of the evaluations.
Employers who have evaluated operators prior to Dec. 9, 2018, will not have to conduct those evaluations again, but will only have to document when those evaluations were completed.
The rule also requires crane operators to be certified or licensed, and receive ongoing training as necessary to operate new equipment. Operators can be certified based on the crane’s type and capacity, or type only, which ensures that more accredited testing organizations are eligible to meet OSHA’s certification program requirements. The final rule revises a 2010 requirement that crane operator certification must specify the rated lifting capacity of cranes for which the operator is certified. Compliant certifications that were already issued by type and capacity are still acceptable under this final rule.
