Crane Signage incident

In a recent incident, an acrylic panel detached from a lightbox on the rear jib of a tower crane, striking a local resident.  

 

To avoid similar incidents, ensure an inspection is completed on all light boxes and other accessories attached to tower cranes.

Crane manufacturers approval must be sought when accessories (such as signs, lightboxes and lights) are attached to tower cranes and mechanical fixings must be used to secure panels.

From a design perspective, attachments must be designed to take both wind loads and dynamic forces and approved by temporary works.

An inspection and maintenance regime must be put in place and followed.
