Crane operators are required to have extensive training to ensure proper operation and many safety precautions need to be taken when using a crane. Operators along with the workers in surrounding areas need to be extremely careful and aware of the machinery in order to avoid causing a crane accident.

A common crane accident occurs when a crane comes into contact with a power line, causing electrocution. This type of crane accident causes a majority of crane accident fatalities.  A crane collapse, although very rare, is often catastrophic to anyone involved.

According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administrator (“OSHA”), attachments used with cranes should not exceed the weight capacity, rating, or scope recommended by the manufacturer of the crane equipment. Following these precautions may help ensure the safety of the employee handling the equipment, as well as employees in surrounding areas.
