NCCCO Foundation Forum Occurring Virtually in October 2020

The NCCCO Foundation is holding its Fifth Annual Industry Forum on Personnel Qualifications virtually on Thursday, October 29, 2020. This free-to-attend event is a fantastic way to learn about the latest industry updates from key figures and experts.

Scott Ketcham, Director of OSHA’s Directorate of Construction, will return this year to provide the Forum’s keynote address and participate in its closing Q&A section. His presence truly attests to NCCCO’s standing in the industry and the exceedingly high quality of the event.

Other session focuses will include:

  • Jobsite responsibilities
  • The importance of certification for riggers, signalpersons, lift directors, and other on-site professionals
  • New certification programs in development
  • The Foundation’s newly-published Most Similar Certifications Directory
  • ASME B30.5 Responsibilities

The session on B30.5 Responsibilities will be especially relevant. Many large general contractors have adopted the B30.5 Responsibilities into their crane action plan. It will be a great way to showcase not only crane operator responsibilities, but also those of the crane personnel, including their respective qualification requirements.

Per American Cranes & Transport:

“The Forum will build on the success of previous events and focus on the latest developments in regulations and best industry practices as they pertain to the qualifications of personnel working in, with, and around cranes and other types of lifting equipment.”

With the Forum, the NCCCO Foundation provides a wonderful opportunity for industry professionals to come together for the newest updates about the regulation side of the industry. With numerous new certifications being developed, you’ll want to make sure your team stays up-to-date and aware.

One benefit of virtual events is that attendees can tune in from wherever they are, and the time and expense of traveling to an event of interest is eliminated. Don’t miss this opportunity to gain a wealth of knowledge with relative ease.

Registration is required for the Forum, but again, it’s free to attend. You can register here.
