    I have worked with cranes for most or my career and also in WHS. What I see here is there were two workers positioned beneath the lifting area who were in danger of being killed. It was obvious that the lifting crane was at its limits and possibly lifting over the side of the plant could have made it worse. You would have to see the chart to be sure. This sort of thing happens when using unsuitable equipment to save money on the cost of hire. The lift was poorly managed by the person in charge.
