Crane Safety on Construction Sites (ASCE Manuals and Reports on Engineering Practice No. 93) was written to aid the construction industry in the management of crane operations. Crane operations in construction range from unloading and setting equipment on a one-time basis to using numerous cranes that perform multiple tasks on larger complex projects. This manual addresses these variables by clearly defining and assigning crane management responsibilities. It discusses issues such as safety plans, responsibilities, supervision and management, operations, training, manufacture, crane safety devices, and regulations in some detail as they relate to crane management. Appendixes are provided that list additional resources, manufacturers of crane safety devices, and explore case studies of crane accidents.
