In the past accidents have been caused by cranes overturning due to overload or poor ground support. Cranes have collapsed when not properly assembled; loads have fallen (including counterweights) or swayed and impacted with people/buildings. This article highlights the different types of crane available (and the factors which determine their use), the process for introducing a crane onsite and the specific requirements when using tower cranes.
