While there are many different types of cranes, they all have the ability to make many jobs much easier by lifting enormous weight. But they also share the potential for disaster when they are not operated safely. Crane-related accidents can often be deadly, due to the cumbersome and heavy loads that are lifted. Once a load falls, not much can be done to stop it, and there is little time for people to move safely out of the way. OSHA has been so concerned about crane safety that they have recently revised their crane safety regulations… for the first time in almost 40 years!

Video Transcript

There are many different types of movable cranes, including commercial cranes, locomotive cranes, and wheel cranes. Extreme care and a clear understanding of the cranes abilities must be considered. Never allow your crane to come close to any overhead wires. On large construction sites, the crane is usually the most expensive piece of equipment. It is also the equipment capable doing the most damage if the things go wrong. Because the crane operation is often critical, OSHA requires that a signal person be qualified.
