OSHA Crane Safety Standards & Rules

Crane Accidents: Injuries and Wrongful Death

Each year in the U.S., there are 96,000 cranes used in construction. According to a July 2008 report on Crane-Related Occupational Fatalities published by the U.S. Department of Labor Bureau of Labor Statistics, an average of nearly 80 construction workers are killed each year in crane-related accidents. Many more construction workers are seriously injured as a result of crane accidents and collapses. And it's not just construction workers who fall victim to crane accidents. Bystanders and passersby also are being injured and killed at an alarming rate by crane accidents.

Crane accidents are a national problem, but the devastating physical, emotional and financial impact of crane-related injuries and wrongful death on American families could not be more personal and life-altering.

The Department of Labor's Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OASHA) is responsible for setting crane safety standards. OSHA also is responsible enforcing crane safety standards. OSHA's enforcement of crane saftey standards includes on-site inspections of construction cranes for compliance with all crane safety regulations.

Current OSHA crane safety regulations are over 30 years old.

The current crane safety regulations are over 30 years old. In July 2004, an OSHA advisory committee made up of union and industry members made recommendations and proposed standards on crane safety. More than four years later, no changes have been made to the 30 year-old standard.

Crane-related fatalities continued to mount, with six deaths in the past week, prompting Democrats in Congress to push for an enhanced federal safety standard and put more pressure on the agency charged with overseeing workplace safety.

Kris Maher, Wall Street Journal, July 25, 2008

As a result of out-dated crane safety standards and the dangerous corner-cutting construction companies who put profits before people, preventable crane accidents and collapses are happeneing at an alarming rate.
