The Philadelphia skyline can be filled with cranes at any given time. They are indispensable assets to the construction industry and allow for great efficiency when used properly. That said, they are also a significant cause of worker injuries and deaths.
Typically, when a crane accident occurs, the cause can be traced back to an operation error. If the operator is not properly trained, he or she should not be in control of the machine; even a small mistake like lowering a load too quickly or making a wrong turn can mean the difference between a job properly executed and a serious injury.
In addition, the machine must be properly maintained. Cables need replacement, and regular maintenance is crucial.
