Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 118326.015Event: 07/25/2019Crane Operator Is Killed By Falling Jib Boom
At 1:10 p.m. on July 25, 2019, Employee #1 and five coworkers, employed by a construction company, were working on Crane #526, Grove 5200, 240 Ton Crane, Serial # 5200 8192. They had determined that new parts would need to be ordered to repair the boom angle sensor for the jib, and now they were stowing the jib until it could be repaired. Employee #1, the main operator, was positioned on top of the jib, inside its lattice work, when the jib disconnected from the boom and fell, a fall height of 10.5 feet. As it fell, the jib rolled 180 degrees, first striking the outrigger jack and the deck and then hitting the ground. Employee #1 sustained blunt force crushing injuries to the abdomen and was killed.
