NCCCO Certification/Recertification

At this time, Safety Seminars DOES NOT offer an initial certification course, but we can prep you for your written exams, and help you find an NCCCO Practical Examiner.

Our two-day exam prep course is designed for current NCCCO Certified Operators who need to recertify their certification.  We not only prepare operators for the NCCCO recertification written exams, but we handle the entire application process.

Our trainers are certified and experienced crane operators, with decades of experience, and the courses we teach are designed for your success.  We offer both local and nationwide training, at our site or yours!  Below is a list of all our certification courses:

  • Telescopic Boom Cranes Swing Cab (TLL)
  • Telescopic Boom Cranes Fixed Cab (TSS)
  • Articulating Boom Cranes (ABC)
  • Drywall Boom Cranes (ABL)
  • Service Truck Cranes (STC)

Becoming a certified crane operator is more than operating a crane...its knowing and observing all of the regulations and running a safe job site.
Qualified riggers and signalpersons are essential to the safety of every employee when lifting loads and working around cranes.  Safety Seminars, Inc. recognizes that these two function go hand-in-hand, and offers a combined comprehensive training class, which includes a one-year qualification card.

A Qualified Rigger can perform simple, repetitive rigging tasks when the load weight, center of gravity, the rigging, and rigging configuration are provided or known by the rigger through experience or on-the-job training prior to the rigging activities. Specifically, Riggers should be able to demonstrate or have knowledge of how to:

  • Inspect rigging before use
  • Identify and attach rigging with basic knowledge of hitch configurations, capacities, and basic knots
  • Recognize associated hazards
  • Use various types of rigging equipment and basic hitches and their applications

A Qualified Signalperson is required to demonstrate proficiency in giving both hand signals and voice commands. The candidate should also have a clear understanding of crane dynamics and crane operations per OSHA 29 CFR 1926.1428.
A written and practical exam will be administered to ensure candidate are qualified in these fields.

We can train at your place or ours!  Call today to schedule your 2016 Rigger & Signalperson training & qualification.

Why Get Qualified?

In 2010, OSHA mandated that riggers and signalpersons be qualified, and that employers must use qualified riggers during hoisting activities for assembly and disassembly work (1926.1404(r)(1)). Additionally, qualified riggers are required whenever workers are within the fall zone and hooking, unhooking, or guiding a load, or doing the initial connection of a load to a component or structure (1926.1425(c)).  Below are the OSHA requirements for both riggers and signalpersons.

OSHA requires operators to be trained and qualified in accordance with OSHA Standard for aerial lifts (1926.453), before operating the following equipment:

  • Vehicle Mounted Bucket Trucks
  • Aerial Lifts
  • Scissor Lifts
  • Fork Lifts

Because OSHA requirements change frequently, Safety Seminars, Inc. offers a one-year qualification course for each of the listed equipment. Our courses includes:

  • Vehicle Safety & Inspection
  • Worksite Safety & Inspection
  • Fall Prevention
  • Tip-Over Prevention
  • Collision Prevention
  • Electrocution Prevention
  • Improper Use

This four-hour qualification course includes both lecture and hands-on training.  A written and practical exam will be administered to ensure candidates are qualified in these fields.

Why Get Qualified?

Aerial lifts have replaced ladders and scaffolding on many job sites due to their mobility and flexibility. They may be made of metal, fiberglass reinforced plastic, or other materials. They may be powered or manually operated, and are considered to be aerial lifts whether or not they can rotate around a primarily vertical axis.  This standard applies to bucket trucks, scissor lifts and fork lifts.
Many workers are injured or killed on aerial lifts each year.
OSHA provides the following information to help employers and workers recognize and avoid safety hazards they may encounter when they use aerial lifts.
We are a CalOSHA Crane Inspector for every type of mobile, gantry, & overhead crane.  Inspections are required on cranes exceeding three (3) tons rated capacity, shall require certification by a licensed certifier on an annual and quad-annual basis.  Inspections are conducted on-site and take a minimal amount of time.
