From a good friend in Africa, we understand that it has been alleged that crane operator fatigue is likely responsible for the accident depicted below



From a good friend in Africa, we understand that it has been alleged that crane operator fatigue is likely responsible for the accident depicted below, which is said to have taken place at Tangier port, Morocco last Saturday (25 May).

While the foregoing report's cause is unconfirmed, we know that working consecutive or irregular shifts can be extremely problematical from an occupational safety perspective.

OSHA has devoted some time, energy and expense in exploring the subject. Here's a link to the relevant agency webpage:
