A crane truck lifting a 17-ton enormous concrete pillar overturned and crushed the driver to his death at a private company’s port in Sri Racha.

 

Pol. Capt. Boonlai In-iam was notified of a fatal accident at a private company’s port in the Thung Sukla subdistrict of Sri Racha on August 9th and hurried to the scene with the Sawang Prateep rescue team.

 

A massive crane truck was found sitting on the driver’s cabin with the wheels pointing skyward. Stuck in the crumpled cabin was the male driver Salid Panthong, 49, who was previously trying to lift an enormous concrete pillar weighing 17 tons before the crane lost balance and overturned.

Quite correct, prior to any heavy lift there should be a lift plan, identifying amongst other things the SWL at various radii which should not be exceeded, it appears that they were trying to complete the lift using a crane that was over its limits. 

Yet, the operator ignored the overload audio warning........surely it had not been disabled.........? 😋

Well we don't know do we ? Of course apart from the lifting plan there should also have been a risk assessment undertaken as to the placement of the cranes outriggers. It has happen before where the bearing plate for the outrigger, although place on a larger steel pad, simply pushed through into a collapsed drainage pipe and hence toppled.  Let's hope it is not just another one of those incidents where the family of the deceased is given peanuts and the contractor continues as if nothing happened.

Locally trained no doubt. Lifting safety is woeful here.

 

I have caught workers at my company using cranes and hoists improperly, once I caught them using a truck crane to change a light fixture... the guy was standing on the boom which was extended to reach the light 10 meters above the ground! No harness or anything... 

 

Will lessons be learned from this incident and preventative actions implemented? No chance.

 

RIP to the deceased.
