Ensuring weight safety during crane operations

Posted on November 26, 2014 2:24 pm under Construction Accident

Cranes are made to operate safely within their load carrying capacity. As such, failure to carefully understand the crane’s lifting capacity may lead to accidents that can be debilitating and sometimes even deadly.

Knowing the crane’s lifting configuration is not the sole responsibility of crane operators. Construction superintendents, site managers, and project managers also share responsibility in ensuring that cranes only lift loads within safety standards. Furthermore, crane manufacturers should also ensure that each of the crane’s components have been designed and manufactured within the highest quality standards to avoid crane collapse.
