The Crane Certification Association (CCAA) was formed to promote crane safety, improve the certification profession and address the subject of crane safety in governmental forums.
With members across the country, the association meets twice a year during its spring and winter conferences to discuss issues, share information and conduct training to increase the knowledge and professionalism among its membership.
The organization also actively works with regulatory bodies that implement projects and programs that affect the crane industry (OSHA, CAL OSHA, WISHA, etc.), and maintains a working relationship with many of the major crane manufacturers across the country. In May, the CCAA held its spring meeting in Baltimore. The meeting included 11 presentations on such subjects as OSHA regulations, line pull testing, soil stability, deflection for supporting structures for overhead cranes and certified crane surveyor training.
