    This, from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics:

    From 2011 to 2017, the Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries (CFOI) reported 297 total crane-related deaths, an average of 42 per year over this 7-year period

    You really need to know more about statistics before they are of any value. How were they compiled? What is the real reason for the death? Was it indeed the crane's fault? Without more information, the only value of the numbers is ..... well ..... there is no real value in numbers given with no context.

    Yep. Statistics can be used to prove or disprove almost anything depending on how you gather or interpretate the data.

    I guess it was only important to tether the guy leaning over the edge, the other guy is just standing there ready to watch the other guy when he fall to his death... The boards they laid to get out there tied on with baling wire and the vertical boards supporting those... I want to see the SOP for THAT process!

    We have better fall arrest systems now. Those guys were working with just belts instead of harness.
