If a tower crane operator is taken ill or injured in his cab, his life may depend on a speedy rescue. Generally, it will be up to the contractor to ensure a rescue can be conducted safely. An incapacitated operator must be hoisted over the side in an operation that is both fast and safe. The differences in tower crane type and configuration, make it the contractor’s responsibility to provide the equipment to save the operator’s life.
Because having specific rescue devices and trained teams is necessary, and public rescue services don’t always have them, contractors must take responsibility for ensuring the necessary equipment and trained staff is on hand to drastically reduce the time it takes to rescue the operator.
