Fork Lift, Crane and Rigging Safety

Crane operators, Fork lift operators and a very large but undetermined number of other workers and the general public are at risk of serious and often fatal injury due to accidents involving cranes, forklifts, derricks, hoists, and hoisting accessories. While there are many different types of Cranes & forklifts, they all have the ability to make many jobs much easier by lifting enormous weights. But they also share the potential for disaster when they are not operated safely. Crane & forklift and rigging -related accidents can often be deadly, due to the cumbersome and heavy loads that are lifted.
