Safety Is Our Top Priority
At CraneCo Crane Services we take safety very serious. We have crane operators that are NCCCO Certified & Compliant and stay up to date with the latest industry standards.
Loads that cranes have to lift are very expensive, but most importantly lives are at stake when things go wrong. We survey and setup everything properly to ensure a safe job completion.
Notably, we double and triple check everything is going to function properly and everyone will be able to go home to their families along with a job well done.
OSHA says nearly 80% of crane accidents happen because of overloading the crane. 80 percent of those accidents can be attributed to human error and poor judgement on the crane operator.
OSHA says nearly half off all crane accidents are when the crane comes in contact with a power source. This is dangerous not only for the crane operator, but also anyone else that comes in contact with the crane while it is in contact with the power source. Nearly 200 people die each year from coming in contact with power lines. Power line contacts happen when there is poor planning no the job site.
The fall zone is a designated area where no one should be while the crane is in motion or has a load suspended. This area is defined before any kind maneuvering by the crane operator. The only time someone should be within the zone is if they are guiding a load or hooking up a load to the crane.
