Monday Accident and Lessons Learned: Crane Accident Root Cause

Below is a movie of a crane accident that was sent to me by John Grout (mistake proofing expert).

John was waiting at the light when the accident occurred. The video came from a police car that just happened to be driving by.

What can you learn from this movie?

One thing you might not think about when performing an investigation is all the sources of evidence.

Did anyone capture the accident on video tape?

You may even consider installing security cameras for dual purposes – security and evidence for future investigations. And don’t forget to record audio (like the airplane black boxes do).
