Electrocutions are the most common cause of crane-related fatalities. OSHA estimates that there are over 250,000 crane operators working on over 175,000 railroad, mobile and tower cranes nationwide. Each year, dozens of these workers lose their lives when their equipment comes into contact with energized overhead lines.
Designed to visually remind workers of boom status, crane warning flags from William Frick & Co. can prevent deadly accidents. Using a simple Velcro strip, they can be attached to steering wheels, crane control panels or door handles to actively remind operators of current conditions.
"Our warning flags make it easy to safeguard your equipment and your people by reminding them of the crane's current status - right at the controls where accidents can happen," explained Evie Bennett, Vice President of the Libertyville based manufacturer. "It's a simple, economical way to avoid problems."
Made of durable vinyl with integrated reflective strips for maximum visibility, Crane Flags can be ordered with the stock "Boom Raised" message, or customized with your safety logos or warnings. The Velcro band easily attaches almost anywhere and keeps the flag in place - even in high winds. Order them alone, or let Frick's safety experts help you build a complete customized safety program to keep your equipment and people out of trouble.
