Concrete pump operator certification

Certification requirements are now in effect for concrete pump operators. As of January 1, 2024, anyone operating a concrete pump or placing boom at a workplace must hold a valid concrete pump operator certificate or work under the supervision of someone with a valid certificate. See OHS guideline G20.26.6 for more information about these requirements.

Currently, the Certified Concrete Pump Operator (CCPO) Program from the BC Construction Safety Alliance (BCCSA) is the only WorkSafeBC-approved certification program. To learn more and register, visit their website: Certified Concrete Pump Operator.
