The United States is one of the largest construction markets worldwide with costs reaching over 1,231 billion U.S. dollars. Bigger buildings and bigger projects have attracted an overabundance of workers, trained and untrained, to build these projects. With this rapid urban development, many projects include the use of cranes to move large, heavy building materials. Every precaution with safety training should be incorporated when cranes are used in construction
Crane safety is often the exception rather than the rule. According to the Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries (CFOI) reported from 2011 to 2015, 220 total crane-related deaths; an average of 44 per year.
