Overhead Crane Shocker

This mobile crane is holding a machine which weighs approximately 14 tonnes about 300mm off the ground. Wooden blocks, that could have been used to minimise any failure, were within easy reach.

Never work under a suspended load, even for short periods or for minor work, as the consequences of crane or rigging failure can be catastrophic. If you need to work on the load either lower it to the ground or support it on packing, such as timber dunnage.

We have a DVD on the safe operation of cranes; Click here to get it!
