Don’t forget the Deep South Crane and Rigging employee who lost his life three years ago at the Coffeyville Resources Refinery during a turnaround. He was crushed by counter weights while assembling a large crane.
Also, I recently came across some photos of a 150 foot tall crude tower being stood up at the refinery where I work in 1968. There was no crane. They had a derrick secured by guy wires next to the tower base and the tower was raised and set using cables and winches. All this in a state where a 35 MPH wind is considered a gentle breeze.
