The problems related to the exploitation as well as to the assessment of the durability of the overhead cranes supporting structures based on the various examples of their failures or excessive vibration has been presented in this article. The example of the crane runway designed very sparingly (based on very tentative calculations to reduce material consumption, which resulted in the need for reinforcement) has been analyzed. The issues of the construction fatigue life have been also mentioned.
