The National Commission for the Certification of Crane Operators Foundation (NCCCO Foundation; Fairfax, VA) has announced that the Fifth Annual Industry Forum on Personnel Qualifications has been rescheduled for Oct. 29 as a virtual event. As previously reported by the Foundation, Scott Ketcham, director of OSHA’s directorate of construction, will once again provide the keynote address and participate in a Q&A session that will conclude the conference.
Also per the Foundation, the Forum will build on previous events and focus on the latest developments in regulations and best industry practices as they pertain to the qualifications of personnel working in, with and around cranes and other types of lifting equipment. “In light of the imminent publication of OSHA’s Compliance Directive, we anticipate the session on the Foundation’s newly-published Most Similar Certifications Directory to be highly popular,” said NCCCO Foundation CEO Graham Brent.
Other sessions will focus on who’s responsible for what on job sites, why certification is so important for riggers, signal persons, lift directors and others even when it may not be required, what’s “bubbling under” with new B30 standards, and what new certification programs are being developed.
The last Forum was held in Crosby, TX in October, 2019. There is no fee required to attend.
