Cranes Hazards

Vehicle Hazards

 

A vehicle`s rated load or lift capacity should never be exceeded - this can cause the vehicle to tip or flip more easily.

 Do not "catch a ride" unless there is a safe place for you to sit.

 Operators should make sure that everyone, including themselves, is in the clear before using dumping or lifting devices.

Haulage vehicles that are loaded by cranes, power shovels, loaders etc., must have a cab shield or canopy that protects the driver from falling materials.

 

Cranes Hazards

 

According to OSHA, 32% of crane-related fatalities are caused by workers being struck by the crane`s load. Another 3% of crane fatalities are caused by workers being struck by the crane cab or counterweight.

In addition to the load and cab or counterweight, what are some other types of struck-by accidents involving cranes?

  • Loose items can fall from suspended personnel platforms.
  • Cranes can tip over and strike workers.
  • If the crane is overloaded, equipment can break, dropping parts of the crane, equipment, or the load on workers.
  • Some cranes are mobile pieces of equipment, and they could run over you just like any other vehicle could.
