||Quantification of the risks involved in crane operations
||Quantifizierung der Risiken beim Kranbetrieb [in German]|
||Apr. 1999, Vol.49, No.4, p.273-276. Illus. 7 ref.
||A procedure for identifying and quantifying the hazards involved in crane operations, tested in a steel plant, is presented. Information on working conditions is obtained from crane operators and other workers. Hazards are identified according to the EN 292 and EN 1050 standards. Scales are used to quantify the hazards posed by the crane itself and by the surrounding factors such as the illumination, the design of the operator's cabin with or without air conditioning system, the ease of safe manipulation, and the qualification of the crane operator. The total risk is calculated from the scaled ratings given to each hazard. Checklists and the scales for assessing each hazard as well as the results obtained for an overhead travelling crane are presented.
