Information:

An operator attempted to lift a rock (about 1 tonne in weight) that was wedged at the top of a jaw crusher using the gantry crane (SWL 4.9 tonne), normally used for crusher maintenance work. The operator heard a loud noise as the wedged rock dislodged. Inspection of the crane revealed misalignment and damage to the hoisting winch assembly, gantry beam web and distortion of the gantry beam.
