Following the collapse of a crawler crane in New York City this past month, resulting in a man’s death, Mayor Bill de Blasio has required that large cranes follow new safety regulations. The new regulations require crawler cranes to halt operation when there are winds forecast between 20 and 30 mph, with failure to do so resulting in an increased fine. Operators will also have to notify residents and businesses in the construction area about the presence of a crane when it is first installed. In addition, wherever there are construction sites with cranes present, there will need to be pedestrian traffic managers.
