|The NCCCO Foundation's Sixth Annual Industry Forum on Personnel Qualifications is shaping up to be a "can't miss" event for anyone concerned with the latest rules, regulations and best practices concerning the qualifications of crane operators and those who work with them.
On November 11, beginning at 1:00pm ET, the Forum will kick off as an in-person and virtual (Zoom) event with a discussion on the qualifications of crane operators and related personnel. With publication of OSHA's Compliance Directive on its revised crane operator certification requirements now imminent, Scott Ketcham, Director of OSHA's Directorate of Construction will take the stage as the Forum's keynote presenter and head up an outstanding line-up of industry experts who will discuss the latest topics and trends related to crane and rigging personnel qualifications.
We'll be addressing a host of relevant issues including: what you need to know about upcoming changes to B30 standards; how online Directories can simplify compliance with OSHA certification requirements; what equipment will soon be covered by new certification programs; how certification is impacting the telecommunications industry; shifting demographic trends among certified operators; veterans transition assistance; and much more.
