Many incidents involving crane operations occur during backing and swinging of the equipment. One of the advantages of mobile cranes is the ability to access difficult job sites, and with that ability also comes the risk associated with maneuvering tight spaces in a mobile crane.
It is always a good idea to ask a spotter to assist the crane operator by communicating location and proximity of hazards. Doing so will prevent damage and injury to property, equipment and personnel in the work area.
