NCCER joins NCCCO on ANSI's roster of OSHA-recognized programs New York

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) formally recognized the National Center for Construction Education and Research (NCCER) Crane Operator Certification Program in a signing ceremony last month, making it the fourth such program recognized by the government agency.

Two of the four crane operator certification programs recognized by OSHA are accredited under the American National Standards Institute (ANSI)'s Personnel Certification Accreditation Program: NCCER and the National Commission for the Certification of Crane Operators (NCCCO), which was recognized by OSHA in 1999. NCCER and OSHA held a signing ceremony on May 17, 2010, to finalize OSHA's formal recognition of the NCCER program.

"On behalf of ANSI, I'd like to congratulate NCCER on its recent agreement with OSHA, and NCCCO for its many years of recognition by OSHA," said Scott Cooper, ANSI vice president for government relations. "These agreements have a direct and positive impact on the safe operation of cranes, and ANSI supports continuing efforts to elevate crane safety nationwide through strong certification programs."

Accreditation assesses the competence of certification bodies to determine compliance with standards. It also helps to promote best industry practices, reduces the need for government agencies to individually monitor conformity assessment organizations, and strengthens consumer confidence in products and services.

ANSI's Personnel Certification Accreditation Program verifies a certification body's compliance with requirements outlined in the International Standard ANSI/ISO/IEC 17024, General Requirements for Bodies Operating Certification Systems of Persons. In conducting its accreditation activities, ANSI itself follows the International Standard ISO/IEC 17011:2004, Conformity assessment -- General requirements for accreditation bodies accrediting conformity assessment bodies.

Since the inception of ANSI's Personnel Certification Accreditation Program in 2003, the Institute has accredited 30 personnel certification bodies that represent more than 70 different credentials. In total, over 5.2 million professionals currently hold certifications from ANSI-accredited personnel credentialing bodies.
