Performing overhead/elevated work requires that all personnel working in the immediate vicinity be briefed on all work evolutions taking place in the area, that tools and materials used for overhead work are properly secured, and workers remain vigilant of the overhead hazards. Two individual work crews were performing maintenance on an overhead crane when one crew descended and walked underneath the crane. At that moment, a removed crane component fell and struck one of the exiting crew members. Communication between workers/work groups and awareness of hazards is paramount to completing work in a safe manner.
