Crane accidents can happen on any construction site.
Visit any construction site and you’re bound to see one or more cranes stretching high into the air. Cranes, hoists and derricks are necessary to move heavy objects and perform essential tasks on most job sites. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, in 2014 there were more than 44,000 crane and tower operators working in the United States. With so many professionals working in and around these mammoth metal machines, there is no denying that crane accidents are a hazard that construction workers face every day. In fact, in 2013, there were 21 fatal crane accidents and many more injuries caused by cranes.
