Following a crane crash in Chicago on May 10th that killed one worker and injured two others, the American Society of Safety Engineers recommends the book, “Crane Hazards and Their Prevention” by David V. MacCollum, PE, CSP. For more information, visit the Technical Publications section of ASSE’s Web site at

The crane in the Chicago incident was operating on the fourth floor of a high-rise project when a cable snapped, rocking the crane backward and throwing the three workers from the equipment.
