Safety Glasses or Goggles: To shield eyes from harmful dust and debris.

High-Visibility Clothing: Ensures workers are easily seen by crane operators and others.

Steel-Toed Boots: Protect feet from heavy objects.

Crane Operational Safety Equipment

Operational safety equipment and related technologies can play a critical role in preventing accidents and ensuring the smooth operation of crane activities.

Load Indicators: Prevents overloading of the crane.

Anti-Collision Devices: Helps avoid collisions with other cranes or obstacles.

Emergency Stop Systems: Allows for immediate shutdown of the crane in case of an emergency.
