Do Your Rigging Or Signal Person Personnel Meet New OSHA Crane Mandates

New OSHA Crane Mandates now make it compulsory for all rigging and signal person personnel to meet certifying or qualification standards. For many workers, this involves training and assessment to ensure they meet these standards – and that may include workers who have been in the job for many years. This is a direct effort to increase safety awareness in workplaces, and to ensure there is a minimum standard across all workplaces in the United States where cranes are in use.

Associated Training Services (ATS) has two training programs that are designed to meet these standards. These training programs are:

Rigging / Signalperson – Qualification Program

  • Meets OSHA qualification standard for rigging and signal person.
  • Includes written and practical training and testing.
  • 8 to 12 hours depending on number of candidates

Rigging / Signalperson – Certification Program

  • Exceeds OSHA qualification standard for rigging and signal person.
  • Includes written and practical training and testing.
  • 32 to 36 hours (4 days) depending on number of candidates.

The ATS training programs are flexible and designed to be delivered in the workplace. We come to your site where we deliver a combination of classroom/written subject matter and testing, along with practical instruction and testing relevant to the training programs requested. Upon completion of the rigging/signalperson training program, participants who have successfully completed the required components will receive either a Qualification Compliance Card issued by Associated Training Services (Qualification Program) or NCCCO Rigging Level One and NCCCO Signalperson Certifications issued by the National Commission for Certification of Crane Operators (Certification Program).

If you have any doubts as to whether or not your employees currently meet the new OSHA Crane Mandate, contact us. We can assess your situation and determine what training your employees require to comply with these mandates.
