The purpose of this study was to evaluate work accidents during extraction by cable cranes to reduce the number of accidents by improving the work safety and prevention. All analysed data were provided by the Österreichische Bundesforste AG for the years 1998 to 2008. On average every twelfth accident occurred during extraction by cable cranes (164 accidents). This means 15 accidents per year. The accident rate amounts to 36 incidents per mio solid cubic meters extracted by cable cranes. On an average every 28.103 solid cubic meters extracted by cable cranes an accident occurred. Most accidents occurred on Wednesdays followed by Mondays and in the months September, October and November, as well. Most dangerous daytimes are between 2 – 3 pm and between 10 – 12 am and were related to the main operation of extraction (take on/off the load). Often injuries were caused by ropes which shoot up, falling objects or by collapsed anchor trees/support trees. Frequently injured parts of the body were on the right side, especially fingers/thumb and the knee. Most frequently were injuries of the extremities and the head. More than 50 % of all accidents had up to 19 days status of employee´s illnesses. In the majority of cases, the injuries were crushes, contusions and fractures. Measured by working – downtime, multiple traumas were the most severe injuries.
