Crane Safety in Construction Environments - CD ROM
While there are many different types of cranes, they all have the ability to make many jobs much easier by lifting enormous weight. But they also share the potential for disaster when they are not operated safely. Crane-related accidents can often be deadly, due to the heavy loads that are lifted. Once a load or a crane itself falls, not much can be done to stop it, and there is little time for people to move safely out of the way. OSHA has become so concerned about crane-related accidents that they have recently revised their crane safety regulations... for the first time in almost 40 years!
