Solomon and Klein Article on OSHA and Crane Operator Certification Requirements Runs in Mid Atlantic Real Estate Journal

May 31, 2013

Partner Douglas E. Solomon, Director of the firm's OSHA practice, and Associate Douglas Klein have published an article in the Mid Atlantic Real Estate Journal. Entitled "OSHA to Revisit Construction Industry Crane Operator Certification Requirements," the piece discusses the proposed extension by OSHA of the compliance deadline for crane operator certification requirements. The authors advise that construction industry employers should expect an aggressive regulatory agenda and an uptick in enforcement from OSHA, but that the proposed extension indicates a willingness by the agency to work with construction employers to ensure regulations meet the realities of the jobsite.
