Summary Statement

This research paper expands upon the 1993 book Crane Hazards and their Prevention to examine some of the major hazards on cranes and aerial lifts and evaluate methods of control using safety appliances and/or alternate safer design. Specific examples in the study show how the application of engineering principles can eliminate or minimize many inherent hazards.
