OSHA Final Crane Operator Rule

OSHA Issues Final Rule on Crane Operator Certification and New Evaluation Requirements

On Nov. 7, the U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) published its final rulethat clarifies certification requirements for crane operators, and maintains the employer’s duty to ensure that crane operators can safely operate the equipment. Under the final rule, employers are required to train operators as needed to perform assigned crane activities, evaluate them, and document successful completion of the evaluations. Employers who have evaluated operators prior to Dec. 9, 2018, will not have to conduct those evaluations again, but will only have to document when those evaluations were completed.

The rule also requires crane operators to be certified or licensed and receive ongoing training as necessary to operate new equipment. The final rule also revises a 2010 requirement that crane operator certification must specify the rated lifting capacity of cranes for which the operator is certified. Operators can now be certified based on the crane’s type and capacity, or type only. Compliant certifications that were already issued by type and capacity are still compliant under this final rule.

The final rule, with the exception of the evaluation and documentation requirements, will become effective on Dec. 9, 2018. The evaluation and documentation requirements will become effective on Feb. 7, 2019. AGC will provide more information as it continues to review the final rule.


Special Information Regarding Crane Operator Certification Exams Taken in Spanish


We have heard from AGC members that the National Commission for the Certification of Crane Operators (NCCCO) is not currently issuing cards to candidates passing their Crane Certification exams in Spanish. 


Communications from exam proctors to successful candidate may read something like this:


“Unfortunately, the NCCCO will not issue cards to the candidates passing the exams in Spanish, as NCCCO are still awaiting approval/accreditation from ANSI. At this point, NCCCO only issues a letter to the successful candidate and his or her certification can be verified on NCCCO’s website.”


AGC approached OSHA to clarify how enforcement would take place in the absence of a physical card. We have been instructed that the card is not an issue as long as it can be independently verified. NCCCO’s process includes a letter and website verification. As such, AGC is relatively confident that the lack of a card does not present a potential violation of the standard. AGC is basing this estimation on the following communication with OSHA:

“You [AGC] are correct in that a testing organization must be accredited as meeting criteria specified by certification requirements of the cranes standard (subpart CC of 29 CFR Part 1926). As we understand per our discussion, you are aware that particular certifications offered by a testing organization are still under review for accrediting. The organization must first administer enough tests for psychometric evaluations before the reviews can be completed. However, the organization is still accredited to issue other crane operator certifications. In the interim, the organization issues letters to operators who passed certifications that are still under review and makes available all information required by the crane standard about the operators and the tests passed. You ask would this be considered a valid certification.

Because the organization is already accredited to issue other crane operator certifications, it meets the requirements of 29 CFR1926.1427(b)(1) and we have no reason at this time to conclude that the certifications which are still under review and issued by the organization are not valid.”

Construction Spending Should Stay Robust through Early 2019, But Trade Disputes, Workforce Shortages and Rising Interest Rates Threaten to Undermine Long-Term Growth in Construction Demand, Officials Caution


Construction spending hit a seasonally adjusted annual rate of $1.329 trillion and grew 5.5 percent for nine months of 2018 combined, with continued year-to-date gains for major public and private categories, according to an analysis of new government data by the Associated General Contractors of America. Association officials said that while demand for construction should remain strong for the next several months, the construction sector could be impacted by new trade tariffs, continues workforce shortages and higher interest rates.


“Construction spending has increased among nearly every project type and geographic area this year,” said Ken Simonson, the association’s chief economist. “Despite month-to-month fluctuations, the outlook remains positive for modest to moderate increases in most spending categories at least through the first part of 2019. However, damaging trade policies, labor shortages and rising interest rates pose growing challenges to contractors and their clients.”


Spending year-to-date through the first nine months of 2018 was 7.0 percent higher than in January through September 2017 for public construction and 5.1 percent for private construction, the economist commented. Within private construction, spending for residential projects increased 6.4 percent and 3.5 percent for nonresidential projects.


Major segments continued year-to-date gains, Simonson observed. The largest public categories recorded year-to-date gains of 5.8 percent for highway construction, 2.0 percent for educational construction and 15.8 percent for transportation construction. Of the three private residential spending categories, single-family homebuilding rose 6.4 percent year-to-date, multifamily was virtually unchanged and improvements to existing buildings climbed 7.1 percent. Among private nonresidential spending segments, the largest—power construction (including oil and gas field and pipeline structures)—edged up 2.3 percent, commercial (retail, warehouse and farm) construction rose 4.8 percent, office construction increased 7.4 percent and manufacturing construction declined 3.4 percent.


Association officials said that overall economic conditions remain positive as the economy continues to benefit from recently enacted tax and regulatory reforms. But they warned that a growing trade dispute with China, shortages of qualified workers and rising interest rates could undermine future demand for construction services. They urged federal officials to resolve trade disputes and boost investments in career and technical education programs.


“Washington has taken a number of positive steps to deliver robust economic growth during the past two years,” said Stephen E. Sandherr, the association’s chief executive officer. “The best thing federal officials can do to maintain current rates of growth is to resolve potentially costly trade disputes and boost investments in workforce development.”

CompTrustAGC Returns $3.5 million to Participants

CompTrustAGC – the leading construction workers’ compensation fund in Alabama – has a Christmas present for its members, an overall rate reduction and a $3.5 million Bonanza Premium Credit for 2019. 


The fund, which has provided workers’ compensation insurance to the non-residential construction industry for more than 30 years, has returned more than $118.5 million to its members since the Bonanza Premium Credit program was started in 1995.


“The Bonanza Credit program is our way of recognizing members’ participation and their commitment to safety,” said Construction Services Co. President Jeff Rodgers. “Half of the premium credit returned to members is based on safety performance. So, CompTrustAGC members’ focus isn’t just on the bottom line, it’s on the employees – and their families -- who make this great industry what it is.


“The fund has four full time safety consultants that visit 2,000 jobsites every year in an effort to help contractor members attain their safety goals.”


CompTrustAGC – the most financially sound workers’ compensation fund in Alabama and the only fund with an AM Best rating (A-) – was created by contractors for contractors. Because of the outstanding leadership provided by participating contractors the fund has been extremely successful and provides the flexibility and benefits of a self-insured program with the financial security of first-dollar insurance. CompTrustAGC has $90 million in undiscounted reserves with $43 million in members’ equity.


While CompTrustAGC has enjoyed success through the years, we have not been sitting on our laurels. Two years ago the trustees made some positive changes, adding products such as expanded out of state coverages, deductibles and discount programs. And in 2017 CompTrustAGC rolled out its property and casualty division – AGCP&C.


AGCP&C provides AL/GL and other property and casualty coverages through a facility with Benchmark Insurance Company to those companies that participate in the workers’ compensation fund. With the new arrangements on out of state coverages and AGCP&C through a facility with a national carrier, our members have access to a full line of insurance products with national coverage. So, CompTrustAGC can go with our members wherever their business leads them.


For more information on Bonanza Credits or to obtain a quote, please contact Tammy King (205) 451-1414 or tammyk@alagc.org.

 Houston-The Woodlands-Sugar Land, Texas and Naples-Immokalee-Marco Island, Fla. Have Largest Gains; Middlesex-Monmouth-Ocean, N.J. and Spokane-Spokane Valley, Wash. Have Worst Losses


Construction employment increased in 278 out of 358 metro areas between September 2017 and September 2018, declined in 42 and was unchanged in 38, according to a new analysis of federal employment data released today by the Associated General Contractors of America. Association officials noted that construction employment is growing in most parts of the country as firms expand to keep pace with growing demand for construction.


“It is a good time to be looking for a high-paying job in construction in many parts of the country,” said Ken Simonson, the association’s chief economist. “Construction hiring would likely have been even more robust if construction firms could find more qualified candidates to hire.”


The Houston-The Woodlands-Sugar Land, Texas metro area added the most construction jobs during the past year (29,500 jobs, 14 percent). Other metro areas adding a large number of construction during the past 12 months include Phoenix-Mesa-Scottsdale, Ariz. (14,600 jobs, 13 percent); Dallas-Plano-Irving, Texas (14,100 jobs, 10 percent); and Orlando-Kissimmee-Sanford, Fla. (12,300 jobs, 17 percent). The largest percentage gain occurred in Naples-Immokalee-Marco Island, Fla. (27 percent, 3,600 jobs), followed by Midland, Texas (23 percent, 6,600 jobs); Miami-Miami Beach-Kendall, Fla. (22 percent, 9,600 jobs); and Weirton-Steubenville, W.Va.-Ohio (21 percent, 400 jobs).


The largest job losses from September 2017 to September 2018 were in Middlesex-Monmouth-Ocean, N.J. (-4,000 jobs, -10 percent), followed by Newark, N.J.-Pa. (-3,000 jobs, -6 percent); Camden, N.J. (-2,500 jobs, -11 percent); Spokane-Spokane Valley, Wash. (-2,100 jobs, -14 percent) and Baltimore-Columbia-Towson, Md. (-2,100 jobs, -3 percent). The largest percentage decrease occurred in Spokane-Spokane Valley, followed by Camden, Middlesex-Monmouth-Ocean and Charleston, W.V. (-7 percent, -500 jobs).


Association officials said the construction employment gains were coming as most firms continue to benefit from positive economic conditions. They noted that tax and regulatory reform were helping boost private-sector demand while modest increases in infrastructure funding were sustaining public-sector investment levels. They added that the positive economic conditions appear to be helping most firms weather the impacts of higher labor and materials costs, for now, but urged Washington officials to reconsider imposing costly new tariffs that could undermine broader economic growth.


“Many construction firms are expanding their headcount as they benefit from favorable market conditions,” said Stephen E. Sandherr, the association’s chief executive officer. “The question is whether conditions will remain positive amid a growing trade dispute with China and turbulent stock market conditions.”

AM Best Rating Points to CompTrust's Expansive Possibilities

AM Best Rating Points to CompTrust’s Expansive Possibilities


By Bill Caton, CompTrustAGC Manager


In a favorable report, AM Best has renewed CompTrustAGC’s rating at “A-“ for the coming year with a stable outlook. While that is an accomplishment in itself – CompTrustAGC is the only fund in Alabama to maintain an AM Best rating -- there is more to the story upon closer inspection.


The key to CompTrustAGC’s 18th consecutive “A-“ rating is its financial strength. Of course, CompTrustAGC has grown to be a $90 million fund with $42 million in members’ equity. But when AM Best talks financial strength it includes capital, investment philosophy, underwriting and management. Those combined factors mean the potential exists for CompTrustAGC and AGCP&C to grow into a larger size category and expand into a multi-line, multi-state insurance entity. CompTrustAGC and AGCP&C – through agreements with national carriers -- already are available to Alabama-domiciled contractors who need workers’ compensation and property and casualty coverages in other states.


Calling the balance sheet “very strong,” the Best report reads: “The Alabama Associated General Contractors Self-Insurance Fund maintains the strongest level of risk-adjusted capitalization as measured by Best’s Capital Adequacy Ratio at the 99.6 percent VaR confidence level.”


Best says of CompTrust’s operating performance, “Favorable underwriting income coupled with a consistent stream of investment income has resulted in five consecutive years of pre-tax operating gains, net income and additions to surplus.”


While our Bonanza Credit program somewhat slows the growth of members’ equity, Best takes note that even returning $3.5 million annually to our members comes to only 22 percent of our combined ratio.


It is that strength that allowed us to partner with Benchmark Insurance Co., a national carrier, to form in 2017 a P&C facility (AGCP&C) our contractor members can access. AGCP&C – which has taken off in 2018 -- is available only in a package with our top-of-the-line workers’ compensation coverage through CompTrustAGC. And we continue to grow our suite of coverages, adding Contractors Professional Liability and Contractors Pollution Liability over the summer.


Meanwhile, AM Best continues to recognize all aspects of CompTrustAGC’s financial power that makes these products possible. Best lists the fund’s Enterprise Risk Management appraisal as appropriate because “executive management at AGC Services, Inc. …utilize effective operating and financial controls.” Best also writes, “The fund utilizes the services of three investment managers to address various credit, financial and interest rate risks in its investment portfolio. Additionally it utilizes the services of an independent actuarial consulting firm to assess the adequacy of the fund’s loss and LAE reserves.”


Everything comes back to CompTrustAGC and AGCP&C’s capital position and strong management. Our current rate of growth, our vision for the future and our conservative, experienced management could very well take CompTrustAGC and AGCP&C into a future where we meet all our contractor members’ insurance needs – inside Alabama and out.


At CompTrustAGC we’re going places other funds cannot even imagine.

Leading From the Front

Managing Risk

Isn’t Just Reacting

It’s Anticipating

At AGC We Lead From the Front


Leading From the Front

Managing risk isn’t simply reacting to market conditions. Managing risk is anticipating them.

At CompTrustAGC we are diligent in our commitment to protect our members in an ever-changing risk environment. And we’re back at it this year with a package discount on CompTrustAGC and AGCP&C, new products such as Contractors Pollution Liability, Contractors Pollution Professional Liability and a new triage program designed to minimize the impact of claims on your EMR.

CPL and CPP typically are excluded from construction general liability coverages and we have filled that gap. We know that the EMR is the life-blood of your business, so we are adding a 24/7 triage program – the perfect complement to our industry-leading safety program -- to lessen the impact of an injury.

All of this creates easier access to the insurance programs that protect your employees, your EMR -- your business.

            In 2017 we introduced AGCP&C, providing general liability, commercial auto and commercial property and inland marine coverages through a facility with Benchmark Insurance Company.

            In 2016 CompTrustAGC changed the game with its expanded list of products – deductibles, discounts, emerging contractors program.

            The products available through AGCP&C are only available as a bundle with CompTrustAGC’s workers’ compensation. So, current members can access the program as well as those who request a quote on our A-rated workers’ compensation program. And our new package discounts make accessing the facility easier than ever.

            Only CompTrustAGC could bring these products to our industry. And only our members – old and new -- can add these valuable tools to their box. All of this creates easier access to the insurance programs that protect your employees, your EMR -- your business.

CompTrustAGC leads from the front so you can stay on the cutting edge.
