Preventable repairs are costing businesses between hundreds of thousands to $2 million per crane in the U.S. each year. What's more, OSHA has been tripling its number of “significant cases” (those involving citations of $100,000 or more) in the past year and is more frequently imposing penalties of $1 million or more. This goes without saying that at least, on average, 80 lifting and material handling equipment workers are killed each year in crane-related accidents. Following these regulations and standards can be tricky, but it helps prevent these accidents and fines.
The following guide from material handling provider CRANE1 shares all the need-to-know information.
