Failure to Train

Cranes, forklifts, and tractors other industrial machinery can be dangerous. Companies hiring workers to operate this equipment have a duty to train their employees in their safe use. Where they fail they are liable to injured persons. If you have been injured due to an employee's unsafe use of equipment, you are urged to contact an industrial machinery accident lawyer.

Failures to Train in the Operation of a Crane

A crane is the most prominent piece of industrial equipment at a construction site. Crane accidents can occur when the crane is in the hands of poorly trained operator. The operator may harm others when he has not been trained in the following safety points:

  • Just because the crane has a safety overload protection does not mean the operator can ignore concerns about overload. The crane may be able to take the load but the structure it is sitting on cannot. A rope hoist may not be able to handle the load either and drop it.
  • The operator should not pull items from the next bay over. Cranes and hoists are designed to lift vertically. Pulling from the side can cause extra stress on the rope which can mean trouble.
  • It is dangerous to lift the load all the way to the upper limit switch. The switch may fail with the hook assembly coming up and hitting the drum. If this happens the load may fall.
