Prevent overhead crane accidents

Overhead crane safety lighting reduces the risk of accidents caused by unnoticed crane movements

Jun. 14, 2024

Crane accidents can be caused by a multitude of factors. A wide range of individuals is at risk for these accidents, including bystanders, workers, and even crane operators.

The most common type of overhead crane accident occurs when an individual is struck by an object that has fallen from the crane or its load. In these situations, the individual is underneath the crane while it is in operation, which should never happen. Additionally, if operators do not ensure a clear path of movement, the crane can collide with other equipment, workers, and even electrical lines. All of these accidents can be catastrophic, resulting in workers being crushed or seriously injured by heavy loads.

One of the more modern solutions for overhead crane safety is using LED lighting to illuminate the area surrounding the crane head and/or the load it is moving. This safety measure is relatively inexpensive and easy to install, yet it significantly increases workplace safety for both crane operators and everyone in its vicinity.

The SUPER HP EVO Safety Light is an industrial LED lamp designed for the safety lighting of overhead cranes placed at high heights and in very bright environments. It is ideal for ensuring greater safety for the overhead crane operator and workers engaged in surrounding maneuvering areas, especially in noisy and dangerous environments. The safety light, mounted on an overhead crane, emits a beam of blue or red light to the ground, visually warning of the crane's approach and marking the maneuvering area at the front and rear. The safety light is equipped with highly efficient LEDs and a concentrating optic, making the projection very visible. The device has an integrated fan for better thermal dissipation management. Materials such as anodized aluminum and stainless steel make the safety light durable and high quality.

Cranes are essential pieces of industrial equipment, but they are also among the most dangerous. If safety regulations and protocols are not followed, crane accidents are inevitable, and the resulting injuries are often very severe and frequently fatal.
