CRANE ACCIDENT IN MAKKAH

From this photo,the mode of failure clearly indicated that instability of the crane caused it to collapse.The lateral wind loading from the sand storm toppled the crane .So what is new?It happened in Malaysia and all over the world.History repeats itself because we humans seldom learn from previous incidents/accidents.It is a RISK MANAGEMENT ISSUE that was NOT given due attention.We can't stop the accidents from happening but at least we could mitigate the risks and the negative impact to people and properties at or near construction site.

Money is not an issue for a rich country like KSA.Competency(knowledge,skill and attitude) is a major problem worldwide,including Malaysia.

DEAD 107,INJURED 238.
