In this year alone, there have been several incidents at QLD Workplaces that have involved the use of crane and lifting equipment - leading to serious injury.
This could be because of:
❌a failure due to incorrect slinging and rigging techniques
❌loose objects falling from loads being lifted
❌loads colliding with adjacent structures or plant causing items to dislodge and fall
❌cranes not being used in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions
❌incorrect crane selection and siting.
