Accidents with Cranes Cause Serious Personal Injuries on the Job Site
Crane accidents can result in serious injuries, from the simple fact that cranes are high up in the air, heavy and can hurt a person at all angles. People are injured by cranes, when the crane:
- Falls down

- Jib collapse
- Tower crane tips over
There are many different types of cranes, and they are all dangerous. The different kinds of cranes include:
- Electric cranes

Cranes Can Fail at Any Time, and the Results Can Be Deadly
If a crane falls down or fails, it is going to stop working properly. Even if the workers are working within the safety standards at a job site, the crane breaking and malfunctioning will then create a super dangerous situation and environment for everyone on the job site.
Cranes can break, fail or malfunction for a variety of reasons, including:
- Being overloaded for working conditions
- Being pulled by a heavy load to one side
- Failure on the outrigger
- Over exceeding the limitations of the hoist system and mechanism
- Crane operator inexperience in operating the equipment
- Crane operator not taking enough breaks to rest during the work day
- Poor risk management protocols in place to keep the job site safe
- Breakdowns in communication about safety at the job site
- Engaging in two-blocking
- Using killer hooks but not using a throat latch
- Contact with live power lines
- Operator not paying attention to access and egress with the crane at the job site
- Confusion of the operator about crane controls
- Oversteering the crane or crabbing the crane
- Overturning the crane completely
- Turning the turntable and not paying attention
- Breaking ropes or wires
