Lifting and transportation are activities with a high risk profile. More than once, newspapers report about accidents during lifting and transport operations. But why does this happen?
During lifting and transportation, several disciplines with different levels of expertise have to work closely together. Any gaps in this cooperation could result in potentially high risks. As an independent engineering and consultancy firm, Eager.one can often act as a third party Subject-Matter-Expert in these types of projects. Of course preferably upfront, where we can review the lifting and transportation plans at the start of the project, to make sure all risks are known and mitigated. This can also include on-site assistance during project execution.
But unfortunately, accidents do happen. We can investigate the accident to find the root cause. In these types of investigations, we always use a checklist to make sure we collect all necessary data that could give insight in what went wrong. But we also use this checklist during investigations upfront, to determine what could potentially go wrong.
And as it is better to be safe than sorry, we would now like to share this checklist on how to prevent a crane accident also with you.
