Crane design

BSI publishes a wide range of standards and publications on crane and machinery-related health and safety. These include codes of practice for operating and supervising personnel, requirements for the design of cranes, and guidelines for inspection, testing and examination.

The misuse of cranes through lack of knowledge and understanding of hazards and safe working procedures is a major cause of accidents. BSI standards and publications will help you minimize risks and meet essential health and safety requirements of regulations such as the Machinery Directive.
