20 March 2008

On March 8, Utah Governor Jon Huntsman signed into law Senate Bill 255, relating to the improper operation of cranes.

Crane operators on commercial construction projects in the state are required to be certified as a crane operator by the National Commission for the Certification of Crane Operators or any other organization determined by the division to offer an equivalent testing and certification program that meets the requirements of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers ASME B 30.5 and the accreditation requirements of the National Commission for Certifying Agencies.

As a result of this legislation, an individual who violates this requirement is guilty of a Class A misdemeanor. The law goes into effect on July 1, 2007. Utah strengthens penalties for improper crane operation
