Crane stability on site - second edition (C703)


Cranes are some of the most widely operated items of plant on construction sites. But, if misused, they can cause serious harm. This guide gives a thorough step-by-step breakdown of the thought processes involved to ensure that a crane remains stable at all times. It gives information on the various factors which you should consider when planning the use on site of both mobile and tower cranes, including type and choice of crane, loading cases, ground conditions and foundation details. Diagrams, symbols, tables and checklists enhance the text throughout.

The guide was fully revised and updated in 2003 to take into account changes in legislation and best practice and includes references to other topical material on the subject, while a number of accident case studies, with dramatic photographs, alert readers to the DOs and DON'Ts of crane use.
