Problem: Trending of Crane Incidents as viewed from the U.S. Department of Interior ….Answer: Attend the TapRooT® Summit

“Human error was listed as the cause of 12 out of 34 incidents.”

“Equipment failure was listed as the cause of 17 out of 34 incidents.”

Information that is missing includes the experience and training of the personnel involved in the accident; operator/contractor training and maintenance programs; job procedures; condition of the equipment; and maintenance and training records. We believe that this type of information holds the key to accurately identifying the causes of many accidents.”

“Right now the reports do an adequate job of telling us what happened, but they don’t do a good enough job of explaining why it occurred. In our opinion, MMS must significantly improve the method of investigating, analyzing, and reporting the root and contributing causes of accidents if MMS is going to use these reports in understanding why accidents occur.”
