November 30, 2015


Crane industry experts were recognized for their contributions to crane safety at the NCCCO 20th Anniversary Recognition Gala hosted by the National Commission for the Certification of Crane Operators in Washington, D.C.

Among the groups of volunteers honored during the evening for their leadership roles were NCCCO’s Charter Board of Directors and Commissioners, past presidents, former and current committee chairs, and past and current Board members and Commissioners. 

Special leadership awards were made to Charles Jeffress, former assistant secretary of labor for OSHA who approved the formal recognition of NCCCO in 1999; James Callahan, general president of the International Union of Operating Engineers for the IUOE’s early adoption of CCO certification; and Dr. Anthony Mitchell who provided invaluable psychometric support to the development of fair, valid and reliable CCO certification examinations.
