Campaign for safer cranes

34 Signatures Goal: 100

Sign up to Building magazine\'s campaign to improve the safety of cranes. We are calling for: A public register of the checks carried out on cranes to reassure the public and raise accountability. An Annual MOT on cranes more than 10 years old, to be carried out by independent qualified engineers when the crane is assembled. An urgent HSE blitz on cranes. Building magazine launched the Safer Skyline campaign in January after the second fatal crane collapse in four months. We have already won the support of major trade unions; contractors such as Bovis Lend Lease, Carillion and Balfour Beatty; and construction bodies such as the Construction Confederation and the United Crane Operators Association. Martin Linton, MP for Battersea, table and early-day motion in parliament supporting the campaign. It has so far been signed by 65 MPs. The campaign was brought up in a Westminster debate on fatalities in the construction industry. Posters urging workers to call for greater crane safety were distributed to building sites across the UK. They\'re up on projects such as Heathrow Terminal 5 and Paradise Street in Liverpool, and on sites in Bristol, Newcastle, Manchester and Scotland.
