What to Know about Crane Inspections

Those who have had experience with overhead cranes and hoists understand the intricacies of working with material handling equipment. The uninitiated worker may not have the same knowledge of a trained employee, and so they usually do not understand the importance of going through inspections, the frequency of reviews, and who the most qualified are for inspections. Overhead Crane ServiceThis article will discuss the critical aspects of crane care and examinations.

Legally, a crane requires inspection because of OSHA requirements. These safety standards are put in place to reduce accidents to individuals, materials, or structures. Even if not legally required, daily and weekly inspections should be done because they significantly reduce risk and downtime in a factory. Diligent routine checks help in the spotting of potential problems while they are small. Addressing problems lowers repair costs and downtime.

The Crane Manufacturers Association of America says a crane inspector should have over 2,000 hours of field work (maintenance, servicing, modifying, and repairing cranes and hoists). Under no circumstances should an individual perform inspections without first reviewing the proper training. We offer crane operator safety training. We train on proper crane operations that are intended to minimize accidents while also increasing the operator’s awareness of cranes and surrounding objects and people.

Inspections should be done frequently by the individual that has been trained and entrusted to safely operate the overhead crane. Crane professionals like us should do periodic reviews. For periodic checks, the entire system is evaluated, and we are the best equipped for these inspections. Call us today for hoist service NYC.
