No bungee jumping from mobile cranes

By Alex Dahm05 October 2010

A couple of times every year the question of bungee jumping from mobile cranes is raised. Is it allowed or not?

All participants at the 2009 International Crane Conference in Paris and again at the September 2010 International Crane Alliance meeting in San Diego, USA with participation from AEM, CICA, FEM, SC&RA, and ESTA, repeated the answer that bungee jumping from mobile cranes was, is and remains a NO.

It should also be noted that most, if not all, crane manufacturers around the world mention this explicitly in their crane operation manuals. Cranes are not designed for recreational activities such as bungee jumping or "Dinner in the Sky" activities. They should only be used according to the manufacturers' instructions as outlined in their manuals.
