Is There Enough Crane Safety In Charleston, South Carolina?

According to the U.S. Occupational Health and Safety Administrationcrane accidents kill up to 82 construction workers each year. Just recently, a crane tipped over at the construction site of a Kansas City, Mo. performing arts center killing one worker and seriously injuring another.

The workers were installing steel panels on the building for the Detroit-based subcontractor Midwest Steel when the tragic accident occured. The two men were in the bucket of a 100-foot-tall lift when it fell away from the performing arts center and landed across a platform of steel beams.

Construction on the site began in 2006 and is not scheduled to be completed until 2011. Prior to this incident, the construction site had no deaths or injuries.
