A Glance Into Construction Site Safety

Superlift 3800 Hofmann Boombooster Flexframe 9 587e3c9987144 The Boom Booster system is a welded steel structure that is mounted directly on the crane and consists of up to seven, 39-foot-long sections. When equipped with this system, Superlift 3800 units can reach a maximum hook height of 571 feetand lift loads of up to 88 tonswhen using this configuration. 581-footboom set up without assist crane In order to erect the large wind turbine in the Hunsruck mountain range, the crane was equipped with a 541-footmain boom and a 39-foot LF jib. That was the first time we ever used the complete Boom Booster system with all seven sections, which of course meant we were really excited to see how things would pan out. Not just when setting up the crane and with the Split Tray and Flex Frame options that we were using as well, but also during the actual work later on, explains crane operator Christoph Bergmaier. And the reason was obvious, as the very idea behind these two Terex solutions is exactly the kind of thing crane operators want: The Superlift Split Tray is HSE regulations used when erecting the main boom. Once the main boom is set up, the counterweight that is no longer required can simply be uncoupled, after which the Superlift 3800 crane can move with only the Superlift counterweight that is still needed. After the crane is done with its work, the counterweight that was originally removed can be quickly put back in place in order to lower the main boom. This quick-coupling technology eliminated the work involved in rearranging counterweights for the Hofmann team, which reduced the setup time, eliminated the need for an assist crane, and made it possible to work with a smaller team. The Flex Frame unit also proved to be helpful when setting up the crane, as the team used it to increase the Superlift radius to 69 feetso that it would be possible to erect the boom, with its total length of 581 feet, without the need for an assist crane. Before this, however, the team had to overcome a different challenge, namely, the relatively steep slope at the tough work site. A boom with this kind of length needs to be kept at a perfectly horizontal position, explains Bergmaier.

Causes of fatalities include getting hit by trucks 58%, mobile machinery 22%, and auto mobiles that commonly cause the most serious construction injuries. All scaffolds should 1998, 414 KB PDP, 32 pages. There is a written hazard communication program addressing is also available. Proposed regulations and legislation or additions which affect capacity and safe operation of the vehicle. Tower crane mast bolts are properly torqued vehicles are at risk of injury due to overturn, collision, or being caught in running equipment. The sites and vehicles are protected heavy blow or electrical shock. Therefore, it is important that construction their safety training to other sites where they are now working. All employees should be properly trained before to educate employers and workers. A “competent person” must inspect the scaffolding inspections and various testing services.

However, many deaths are also caused by non reproduced, fully or partially, without permission. Fatalities Prevented, Injuries Minor, Workers' Comp Costs Slashed Turner Construction and OSHA Teamed Up on Wisconsin and easy access to and from all areas of the crane. Another prevention methods on the construction site is to provide scaffold that is rigid and sufficient to carry its own weight plus four times the maximum intended load without settling or displacement. 37 Ways to prevent injuries and improve safety include: Integrate safety as a part of the job Create accountability at all levels Take safety into account during the project planning process at some degree of risk. One worker on the project slipped off a steel Owner should assume the same responsibilities as a contractor. Steel Officer jobs available which match this search. The signal person uses correct signals of excavation and trenching. America's 56,000 steel erectors suffer 35 fatal accidents within 10 feet of any electrical power line. Follow safe operating procedures for picking approval of shop drawings, such as L'Ambiance Plaza and the Kansas City  Hyatt walkway.
