The construction and manufacturing industries require many types of specialized equipment, including cranes, derricks, hoists, elevators, and conveyors. These types of equipment are used to move large and heavy loads, providing a critical link between construction design and project management. While each of these has its own specific purpose, each also comes with its own set of safety risks and potential hazards.
