         final rule also extended by three years
         the employer’s responsibility to ensure
         that crane operators are competent to
         operate a crane safely.
           The agency is now proposing an exten-
         sion of the enforcement date to address
         stakeholder concerns over the operator
         certification requirements in the Cranes
         and Derricks in Construction standard.
         SC&RA, along with members of the
         Coalition for Crane Operator Safety
         (CCOS), supports the one year exten-
         sion to ensure clear, concise language is
         implemented for industry compliance.
