Crane Injury Information
When it comes to construction site accidents, a large number of victims suffer from crane accidents that induce serious injuries or even lethal outcomes. The official statistics indicate that hundreds of crane accidents happen on a year to year basis. The construction industry in whole uses over 100 000 cranes all over the country and 100 000 more in maritime industry. Over 200 000 workers operate the cranes, but what is more important – a huge percentage of these workers do not have proper certification. This is one of the main reasons why the Occupational Health & Safety Administration (OSHA) initialized stricter rules and regulations concerning crane operations. The majority of crane accidents take place due to one of the following reasons:
– The crane hits the power line
– Counter weight causes a crush
– Improper crane maintenance led to the crush
– The load was accidentally dropped
– The crane operator was not properly instructed or did not receive any proper training and so on
