Shipboard Pedestal Crane Safety
Providing proper training, performing regular inspections, and working within manufacturer’s guidelines are all effective ways to reduce the number of incidents caused by the failure of vessel-mounted pedestal crane components.
Commercial fishing operations use pedestal cranes regularly, often
in harsh and unpredictable environmental conditions, to unload
catches, products, and supplies. Failures of vessel-mounted pedestal
cranes due to inadequate maintenance, unapproved modifications,
improper use, lack of training, and improper inspections have caused
injuries and fatalities on and around commercial fishing vessels.
These incidents are often caused by failed components such as
masts, booms, and lift cables. Employers should develop a detailed
crane safety plan, which ensures that operators are trained, cranes
are certified, and that operations are performed in line with the
manufacturer’s guidelines and industry best practices.

Not that I will be watching the Sag awar

Not that I will be watching the Sag awards. Because I will not!
But I have to say it! How will the women dress tonight?
Do they dress without showing their breast and slit up the side of the dress?
With all the bad men that have done these things to women, what will you wear?

What is your life worth??

I ask this question all the time? How much is your life worth today if you die??? It really doesn’t matter who’s at fault because your dead. This stunt man was worth $12,675.00

According to OSHA fines and violation, a person who fell 20 feet and the company is partially to blame will be fined under a serious violation.

This should have been a serious violation with fatality. Much more serious fine of up to $500,000 and up to 6 months in prison.

The motion picture industry will laugh at this fine.

This doesn’t bring this person back no matter the fine.

Please people, look out after your own safety and use your protection equipment.


SENOIA, GA – The U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has cited Stalwart Films LLC for failing to protect employees from fall hazards while filming the television show, “The Walking Dead.”

OSHA issued a serious citation and proposed penalties totaling the maximum allowable fine of $12,675, for the company’s failure to provide adequate protection from fall hazards.  OSHA investigated Stalwart’s filming location in Senoia after a stuntman was fatally injured after falling more than 20 feet.

“This tragedy should serve as a wake-up call for the entertainment industry,” said OSHA Atlanta Regional Administrator Kurt Petermeyer. “The entire industry needs to commit to safety practices for actors and stunt people involved in this type of work.”

The company has 15 business days from receipt of its citations and proposed penalties to comply, request an informal conference with OSHA’s area director, or contest the findings before the independent Occupational Safety and Health Review Commission.

Under the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970, employers are responsible for providing safe and healthful workplaces for their employees. OSHA’s role is to ensure these conditions for America’s working men and women by setting and enforcing standards, and providing training, education, and assistance. For more information, visit
