Three Videos - What Can Go Wrong? - Crane Accidents

Three videos showing variety of accidents related to cranes.

Cranes must be used correctly, but they must also be transported correctly.  In this video they were able to get the crane up the hill, but going down the other side was a problem.

These Russian construction workers had an idea for how to get the bulldozer to where it was needed. But, when moving a heavy object it is essential to have read the charts for your crane. No one was hurt in this accident. The crane operator jumped out just before the crane fell.

Not all crane accidents are the result of problems with the crane.  I was concerned about some of the workers being underneath this load.
