Crane Operator Exam

  • Nov 12, 2018

One of the most important employees on a work site, crane operators drive and maneuver cranes that are used to move large materials. The nature of their job is physically demanding, and this is why employees need to be in good health and physical condition. The employer wants to have a worker who is qualified both physically and mentally to operate a crane.

The National Commission for the Certification of Crane Operators (NCCCO) no longer advises the use of the 2005-issued physical examination form. The NCCCO states that an individual is cleared to operate a crane if they hold a current DOT Medical Certificate and have a negative drug screen. There is no federal OSHA standard that sets physical qualification requirements for crane operators.
