Crane operations can be dangerous on offshore rigs, as workers can be struck by the large metal structures or harmed when they malfunction. Cranes are used for multiple jobs on offshore workers and on waterfront operations where shipping vessels are constantly coming and going to drop off goods. One offshore worker recently came to Arnold & Itkin after an injury with a crane. He was dropped while involved in a personnel transfer using a crane.
After investigation, officials discovered that the incident happened when a faulty winch unwound and dropped him. His injuries would have been prevented if the crane operator had been paying better attention to the safety needs of the crew and given the winch careful inspection before starting the personnel transfer.
