CraneIncident16Incident report  on “Tipping of two cranes in Alphen aan den Rijn” released

This was the conclusion of the Investigation Board for Safety in the Netherlands (Onderzoeksraad voor de Veiligheid).

See below the Dutch Press release which was published today and of which a short translation is given below:

Tipping of cranes Alphen aan den Rijn unavoidable

The preparation for the installation of the new bridge deck of the Queen Juliana bridge in Alphen aan den Rijn, had serious shortcomings.  The executing contractors had underestimated the complexity of the scope of work and non of the parties involved realized, that lifting a bridge deck was risky for the environment. This appeared from the report which was published today by the “Onderzoeksraad voor Veiligheid “. Due to the low stability of the Lifting equipment, the tipping over was unavoidable. Even if the execution of the planned work had been done flawlessly, it could not have been avoided.

Lifting Plan incomplete and not suitable

During the preparation of this project with regard to lifting from floating pontoons, one had insufficiently taken into account a number of factors, that influence the stability, such as shifting of the CoG, when manoevring with the cranes, wind effect and bending of the crane boom. In the last version of the Lift plan, a Stability calculation failed. Neither a detailed ballast plan was made.  Both cranes were used up to their max. lifting capacity at that radius, with no margin for absorbing any deviating circumstances. The Crane rental company and the Barge owner assumed that by careful manoevring and ballasting they could safely executed the project. They approached the project as a “Routine job”, with systematically under estimating the risks involved.

Risk mitigating insufficient

The contract for the renovation of the bridge was given to a building combination existing of a Civil Contractor and Steel Contractor. The Civil contractor had a Key role and had to supervise that all risks were adequately managed. This was done insufficiently. They saw it as part of the responsibility of the Steel Contractor, who had hired in the Crane rental company and left the lifting to them. By splitting up various tasks and responsibilities, the risk management was inadequate. All parties involved trusted each other blind on their knowledge and experience and leaned on the responsibility of each other. The Steel Contractor as well as the Civil Contractor allowed to work with an unsafe lifting plan.

Safety of the environment not investigated

The execution of this complex lifting project close to a densely populated area was in the preparation of the project no reason to closely study the possible risks involved to the environment. Both cranes reached almost 40 m above the surounding houses and were positioned on free floating pontoons. The focus of the municipality was to avoid as much as possible the disturbance of the neighbouring houses. The Municipality’s task is to garantee the safety of its residents, especially when projects are executed in a densely populated area.


The “Onderszoeksraad voor de Veiligheid” states that it is crucial that during execution of building structures, an adequate Risk Management is needed. It is recommended to appoint one Central Party, who is responsible for Risk Management, and amongst others the safety of the surrounding area.

Omvallen hijskranen Alphen aan den Rijn onvermijdelijk

De voorbereiding op het plaatsen van het nieuwe brugdek van de Koningin Julianabrug in Alphen aan den Rijn, schoot ernstig tekort. De uitvoerende bedrijven onderschatten de complexiteit van de werkzaamheden en geen enkele partij realiseerde zich dat het hijsen van het brugdeel risico’s had voor de omgeving. Dit blijkt uit het vandaag gepubliceerde rapport van de Onderzoeksraad voor Veiligheid naar aanleiding van het omvallen van de hijskranen in Alphen aan den Rijn in de zomer van 2015. Door de lage stabiliteit van de hijsopstelling was het omvallen van de kranen onvermijdelijk. Zelfs een vlekkeloze uitvoering van de geplande werkzaamheden had dit niet kunnen voorkomen.

Tijdens het hijsen van het nieuwe brugdek vielen op 3 augustus 2015 twee hijskranen om en kwamen samen met het brugdek terecht op naastgelegen woningen en winkelpanden. De materiële schade was enorm en als bij wonder vielen er geen slachtoffers. De Onderzoeksraad is nagegaan hoe de hijsklus is voorbereid en uitgevoerd en keek daarbij ook hoe betrokken partijen invulling gaven aan hun taken en verantwoordelijkheden. Uit het onderzoek blijkt dat de hijsopstelling al bij aanvang van de werkzaamheden een te lage stabiliteit had. Toen tijdens het hijsen een van de pontons sterk begon te hellen, bezweek de kleinste kraan onder het gewicht en trok vervolgens de gehele hijsopstelling mee in zijn val.

Hijsplan incompleet en ongeschikt

In de voorbereiding van de hijswerkzaamheden vanaf het water werd de complexiteit ervan onderschat. Zo is onvoldoende stilgestaan bij het belang van stabiliteit en de werking hiervan. In het hijsplan werd geen rekening gehouden met een aantal factoren dat de stabiliteit beïnvloedt, zoals het verschuiven van het zwaartepunt door het manoeuvreren met de kranen, de wind en de doorbuiging van de mast. In de laatste versie van het hijsplan ontbrak een stabiliteitsberekening. Ook voorzag het hijsplan niet in een ballastplan voor de pontons om eventuele scheefstand tijdig te kunnen corrigeren. Verder bleek uit het hijsplan dat de kranen tot hun maximale capaciteit werden ingezet. Hierdoor was er geen ruimte om gedurende het werk afwijkende omstandigheden  op te vangen. Het kraanbedrijf en het pontonbedrijf gingen er vanuit dat door voorzichtig te werken en de pontons goed te ballasten, de werkzaamheden veilig uitgevoerd konden worden. De Onderzoeksraad constateert dat de partijen het werk benaderden als een routineklus waarbij de risico’s systematisch werden onderschat en dat het hijsplan incompleet en ongeschikt was.

Risicobeheersing schiet tekort

De opdracht voor de renovatie van de Koningin Julianabrug was gegeven aan een bouwcombinatie bestaande uit een bouwbedrijf en een staalbouwer. Het bouwbedrijf had als projectleider een spilfunctie en moest erop toezien dat alle risico’s adequaat werden beheerst. Het bouwbedrijf vulde deze verantwoordelijkheid echter onvoldoende in. Het bouwbedrijf zag het plaatsen van het brugdeel als onderdeel van de taak van de staalbouwer, die het kraanbedrijf had ingehuurd en bemoeide zich vervolgens niet met de voorbereidingen. Door deze versnippering van taken en verantwoordelijkheden schoot de risicobeheersing tekort. De partijen vertrouwden blind op elkaars kennis en ervaring en leunden op de verantwoordelijkheid van de ander. Zowel de staalbouwer als het bouwbedrijf lieten zo gebeuren dat er met een onveilige hijsopstelling werd gewerkt.

Veiligheid omgeving niet onderzocht

Dat de complexe werkzaamheden met groot materieel werden uitgevoerd in dichtbebouwd gebied, was voor geen enkele partij aanleiding om in de voorbereiding bewust stil te staan bij mogelijke risico’s voor de omgeving. De kranen staken ruim veertig meter boven de bebouwing uit en stonden op pontons in het water. Desondanks voelde geen enkele partij zich geroepen om de veiligheid van de omgeving en de potentieel ernstige gevolgen te onderzoeken en te beheersen. Bij de renovatie van de Julianabrug lag de focus van de gemeente op het voorkomen van hinder en overlast voor omwonenden. Dit terwijl de gemeente een belangrijke (overheids-)taak heeft in het waarborgen van de publieke veiligheid, zeker bij werkzaamheden in dichtbebouwd gebied. Een gemeente kan zowel als opdrachtgever en als vergunningverlener actief sturen op omgevingsveiligheid. Dat laat onverlet dat de uitvoerende partijen uiteindelijk de verantwoordelijkheid hebben om het werk veilig uit te voeren.


De Onderzoeksraad vindt het van cruciaal belang dat er bij de realisatie van bouwwerken een adequate vorm van risicobeheersing komt. Gedurende het totale bouwtraject en door de gehele keten moeten betrokken partijen samenwerken om risico’s te identificeren en te beheersen. De Raad beveelt daarom aan om bij bouwprojecten één centrale partij aan te wijzen die de verantwoordelijkheid draagt voor risicobeheersing, waaronder omgevingsveiligheid. Verder beveelt de Raad aan om omgevingsveiligheid als gunningscriterium op te nemen in aanbestedingen van bouwwerken. Ook moet er een afwegingskader komen in het Bouwbesluit dat bepaalt onder welke omstandigheden een bouwveiligheidsplan geboden is. Voor de uitvoerende partijen beveelt de Onderzoeksraad aan om de kennis en deskundigheid te vergroten voor een veilige uitvoering van het werk en een goede invulling van de verantwoordelijkheden.
