Testing Proposed for Colorado Crane Operators

May 19, 2004- Colorado Senate Bill 199, introduced on March 10, would prohibit a person from operating a crane or an employer from employing a person as a crane operator unless the person has passed a physical examination, a substance abuse test, a written examination, and a hands-on examination and has received certification from an accredited certifying entity. It would require crane operators to be recertified every five years.

Additionally, it would allow crane operator trainees to operate a crane prior to certification under the direct supervision of a certified crane operator, and it would create a penalty for a violation of these requirements. The bill was sent from the Committee on Business Affairs and Labor on April 14 and was postponed indefinitely. Source: SC&RA Newsletter
