In both construction and general industry, the need to move large and heavy loads is necessary and vital. There are many different machines and types of equipment which make this possible. One such piece of equipment is the crane. Cranes make it possible to lift, move, and lower loads and objects of all shapes and sizes. The first cranes were invented by the Ancient Greeks and used men or beast to power them. Today, cranes are more efficient and capable of doing more than the Ancient Greeks could ever have imagined.
As with any type of equipment or machinery, there are significant safety issues to be considered with the operation of a crane. Crane operators, and workers in close proximity to them, must follow certain procedures and guidelines to ensure their safety and those around them.
