Operating cranes and other heavy equipment can be a source of injury. When accidents happen, ARCCA’s biomechanical engineers are called in to answer specific questions regarding the cause and circumstances surrounding the injury. Failure analysis engineers may also be called in to evaluate the equipment. In one case, the bucket of an aerial manlift swung and hit a pole, causing the operator to fall to the ground and incur serious injuries. ARCCA experts have extensive experience investigating these scenarios, determining the cause of the accident and researching applicable safety codes and standards.
