sd manitex outrigger failureEvery year, workers are injured or killed in crane and rigging accidents.  Crane accidents are commonly attributed to one of the following: crane tip over or collapse, contact with overhead power lines, or personnel struck by the crane or load.  While training and the application of OSHA regulations, procedures, and policies are pivotal to prevention of work related accidents and injuries, accidents still happen.  Accident investigations help determine how and why failures occur and can provide valuable lessons learned.
