The NCCCO is giving all newly CCO-certified crane operators a Crane Operator Experience Log Book. The book, which is free, is designed to provide operators with a convenient place to record their seat time and details of their crane experience. The use of this book is optional, but it may assist the operators in recording the 1,000 hours of crane experience required for recertification.
The pocket-sized log book is helpful in the tracking of jobs, locations, cranes used, daily hours and other information for a 12-month period. There are also key references from OSHA 29 CFR 1926 Subpart CC, including power line safety guidelines, a list of crane types covered and OSHA hand signals.
