During the operation, the crane jib was slewed over the operating zone for the crane controls. in performing the manoeuvre, the contractor inadvertently operated the jib raise/lower control lever whilst the jib was directly over the crane control position. This caused the jib of the crane to strike and crush him against the control panel.  As a result , the contractor sustained fatal injuries.
