Causes of Crane Accidents

According to the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA), around 125,000 cranes are in operation in the U.S. construction industry every single day. There are more than 80,000 to 100,000 used in the maritime shipping industry.

These cranes are designed to carry an enormous amount of weight at great heights. Companies need to make sure crane operators are well trained and their machines are under constant maintenance in order to be used at peak efficiency. However, companies may try to limit the amount of inspections or scheduled maintenance in order to save money. This type of practice can lead to devastating injuries, even fatalities.

Common causes and conditions which result in crane accidents include:

  • Crane tip-overs
  • Crane collapses
  • Overloading
  • Spills
  • Falling objects
  • Improperly rigged loads
  • Mechanical failure
  • Electrocutions
