3. Queen Juliana Bridge Crane Collapse
Twenty people were injured in a construction accident that took place in August 2015, in the Netherlands. The plan was to place a deck on the Juliana Bridge in Alphen aan den Rijn but the two cranes collapsed while trying to lift the deck. The cranes crashed into buildings and homes nearby completely destroying many of them. Once again the cause of the accident is negligence since the companies underestimated the complexity of the work and didn’t consider all the risks related to it. The Dutch Safety Board said that the preparations for placing the deck were not sufficient.
