Crane accidents can happen even when an experienced and trained operator is using it. However, catastrophic accidents occur more often when there’s an untrained operator.
California is among the top four states in terms of deadly crane accidents, and each year dozens of workers are killed. Here are the most common types of crane accidents:
- Contact with object – 62%
- Falls – 20%
- Transporting accidents – 10%
- Electrical accidents – 8%
Crane collapses, which fall under “Contact with object” can be deadly, and due to the size of these machines, a collapse can put workers and bystanders in the emergency room.
