March 13 course certifies for OSHA crane operators

The Concrete Foundations Association (CFA) has partnered with Cranes 101 and Irving Equipment to offer a 3-day crane certification event on March 13-15, 2019. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires employers in the construction industries to comply with a requirement for crane operator certification.

Employers that invest in workplace safety and health can expect to reduce injuries, fatalities, and illnesses. This will result in cost savings in a variety of areas, such as:

• Lowering workers’ compensation costs and medical expenses

• Avoiding OSHA penalties

• Reducing costs to train replacement employees

• Reducing cost to conduct accident investigations

“The best path forward for Association members is to take the opportunity for certification as professional development for their operators and protection for their company,” said Jim Baty, CFA Executive Director. “Simply delivering form baskets to and from a job site does not require certification, but most company owners agree that there are gray areas at best. Probable construction activities each operator engages in are left open to interpretation. The risk is not worth waiting for.  stepping forward in certification is likely the best course of action for the Association to promote. This will be one of several opportunities created, as the class sizes are limited.”

Space is limited at this event.
