South Carolina Crane Accidents
Many work sites in South Carolina depend on cranes and derricks to get the job done. Lifting, transferring and lowering goods, materials and equipment are crucial aspects of daily operations. However, crane accidents cause many deaths and serious injuries every year.
Crane and rigging safety hazards include faulty or unmaintained wires or winches that can cause accidents that allow materials to fall or slip and kill workers or severely injure them.
Accidents also result from cranes made unsafe by employers who neglect their responsibility to properly train and supervise workers.
