Ways to prevent crane accidents

There are obviously strict guidelines set out by the HSE regarding the safe conduct of a crane. Generally, there should be a risk assessment briefed to all employees working in the vicinity of the crane. There also needs to be periodic risk assessments as construction progresses.

Regular inspection of the crane and its equipment should be assessed on going throughout the build.

There should be full use of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) such as hard hats and high visibility clothing worn by everyone on site.
