After two accidents, the city had ordered crane work to stop at 22 New York City construction sites - one of which was crushed to death - on a crane operated by the same company. According to the "Real Trading" report, United Crane and Rigging has been told to stop all work until it replaces workers who oversaw recent events in July. The Long Island City-based company, which operates in the office building of the Long Island City of Tishman Island (known as the Coney Island Development Zone of JACX and Cammeby International), was hit by five violations by the Ministry of Construction, including inadequate site safety measures. It faces a fine of up to $110,000.
According to the New York Daily News, the first incident occurred in April when a construction worker died after crushing a crane component at 570 Broome Street near the Dutch tunnel. Another worker was injured in the incident. Then, two weeks ago, according to the construction department, the crane operator of the 749 FDR Drive lost control of the machine after lifting the load beyond its capacity. According to the TRD, the crane bends the crane after lifting a load of 700 pounds and hits the side of the building before hitting the ground. The DOB told United, it needed to prove that it had cancelled its record engineers, assemblers, lift supervisors and others. It also needs to appoint an independent supervisor to report the safety compliance report to the DOB on a monthly basis.
TRD did not disclose the name of the employee, and Manchester United declined to comment. It is unclear how long the 22 projects will be delayed, or how delays may affect the construction schedule or budget. The city passed a bill in 2017 requiring workers to receive at least 40 hours of safety training after the surge in deaths at the time. Construction deaths rose again - in the same week, two other workers died in the April incident of United Airlines, and two other construction workers were unemployed.
