OSHA has issued a temporary enforcement policy for the crane operator evaluation requirements in the cranes and derricks in construction standard.  The effective date for the standard's evaluation and documentation requirements was Feb. 7, 2019. 
In response to feedback from the construction industry that some employers need more time to document evaluations of crane operators, OSHA intends to offer compliance assistance, in lieu of enforcement, during the first 60 days of enforcement (until April 15, 2019) for employers who have evaluated operators in accordance with the final rule and are making good faith efforts to comply with the documentation requirement. Temporary enforcement policy here.
