We hope that 2024 proves to be a prosperous year for us, as 2023 was filled with numerous crane accidents.
All information about the 2023 crane accident is in this article.
Lifting operations are risky by nature because they constantly require defying gravity. As my LinkedIn colleagues may be aware, since Monday, May 7th, 2007, I have investigated and documented 1455 crane and lifting occurrences globally, resulting in the deaths of 832 men and women.
Thus, a detailed examination of lifting event data from around the globe in 2023 reveals.
There were 121 incidents in total involving a variety of machines, as follows:.
What kind of accident happened in 2023?
12 Hydra Crane Incidents in 2023.
15 crawler incidents in 2023.
42 Tower Crane Incidents in 2023.
47 mobile crane incidents in 2023.
A close examination of this research on lifting operations worldwide during 2023 data reveals that the other 17 incidents were improvised lifting operations using telehandlers, aerial work platforms, or what the UK Parliament mislabeled as “Lorry Loaders” instead of truck-mounted hydraulic cranes.
67 people were killed during 121 lifting incidents worldwide in 2023.
However, no fatal incidents in the UK during lifting operations were reported in 2023.
A different way of having an accident.
Thus, may I take this time to consider the most heinous illustration of a careless deed in 2023? In October 2023, a man seated in a cloth bag was spotted being lifted, without incident, by a Luffing Tower crane from street level on Sherlock St., Birmingham, to the top of the High Rise construction work site
How do crane and equipment accidents happen?
In summary, on Monday, May 1, 2023, while operating a 100-t WLL mobile crane in Paignton, there were eight lifting incidents in the UK and one charge of drink driving. Consequently, it is worth considering that this represents a notable improvement in crane safety compared to prior years and is the first time in 16 years that there have not been any fatal lifting incidents in the UK. Congratulations to all of the directors, managers, general foremen, supervisors, crane operators, bankers, riggers, and appointed persons.
Worker safety is very, very important, and much too important to leave it to chance. this is what we went for: May 2024 be a good day for us.
Happy New Year! May 2024 be a very nice year for us because we value our lives so much and we protect others since they, like you, have families. If you use our site at home, then proceed with caution and have a happy and contented life with your family.
