For construction workers, the use of heavy machinery and equipment like cranes are just a part of the job. Workers use these pieces of equipment with confidence, assuming their employers have followed all state and federal regulations set forth to protect them from falling victim to an injury on the job. Unfortunately sometimes due to manufacturer or employer negligence this is not the case. 

While construction sites, contractors, and subcontractors are required to follow the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations. A failure to comply with OSHA regulations may cause a major accident involving one or multiple individuals. Construction accidents caused by the use of cranes can cause serious injuries and may even be fatal.
