According to the OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration), there are approximately 125,000 cranes operating throughout construction zones in the United States. There are thousands more operating in maritime and general industries.
While cranes help workers perform essential tasks, they are also very dangerous to operate. Serious injuries can result to both crane operators and to others on a work site where a crane is being used. These accidents can be deadly and lead to permanently disabling injuries.
