The cranes that provide heavy lifting power for construction and industry can also create serious hazards for the people who work with and around them. Crane accidents lead to more than 70 fatalities per year, but incidents like these can be prevented.

MARCOM's updated "Crane Safety in Industrial and Construction Environments" and "Rigging Safety in Industrial and Construction Environments" training products review these hazards, discuss the federal regulations that address them and explain the equipment and procedures that employees should follow when working with cranes.
