Operator Certifications from Crane Institute Certifications (CIC) No Longer Compliant


The US Department of Labor has issued a temporary Enforcement Policy for Certifications from Crane Institute Certification (CIC). The CIC-issued certifications are not compliant with OSHA’s operator certification requirement. OSHA does not intend to cite employers for operating equipment that violates that requirements if their operator obtained CIC-issued certification prior to December 2, 2019. Until further notice, OSHA will not accept CIC certifications, including re-certifications, issued on or after December 2, 2019.
