Electrocutions, Collapsing Booms & Other Dangers
According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the most frequent cause of all crane accidents is the boom coming in contact with energized power lines. Such electrocutions account for nearly 45 percent of crane-related injuries.
Other common causes of crane accidents involve:
- Failure to deploy stabilizing outriggers on vehicle-mounted cranes, resulting in the crane overturning
- Collapsing crane booms
- Failure of the lifting device under the crane’s hook
- Workers crushed by the counterweight
- Dropped loads
- Cranes in motion that strike passersby
- Collisions with other vehicles or objects
- Overloading of the crane
- Insufficient crane operator training
- Poor equipment maintenance
- Improper safety inspections
