Safety Tips to Prevent Crane Accidents

  • Inspect cranes before use.
  • Crane operators should be properly trained.
  • Crane operators should not lift a load beyond crane safety parameters.
  • Raise the load a few inches to verify balance and effectiveness of the brakes.
  • Do not wrap ropes or chains around the load.
  • Never move a load over workers.
  • Workers should maintain at least a ten foot wide radius from cranes.
