While working at the beach I stopped to observe the crane operator.
But my attention immediately went to the men on the side of the building. Setting trusses, I watched the crane operator making a blind pick. No signaler. The two men yelling at the crane operator who couldn’t begin to hear them from that distance. He struck the rigged truss in-between 2 already set trusses and started to rip away a truss. This is the example of how people become fatalities and why this past year we had 4,679 people go to work and never come home.
Crane operator needed a signaler, 2 riggers up on the trusses were not tied off. Something bad could have happened on this day.
Pictures tell it all. Don’t be a statistic.
