Crane Inspection

Our support does not end with purchase and installation. A Crane improperly maintained can result in harm to employees and damage to both product and structure. In this economy, when any supply interruption can mean a loss of customers and worse, production downtime is exceptionally costly. That’s why we offer a custom-designed inspection plan for every crane in your plant.

 

Having a ProTek crane inspection plan in place is more than just a cost-effective, good idea. OSHA and some state safety administrations have established crane inspection regulations that are required by law in certain industries and are the standard practice everywhere. Both Frequent (usually monthly) and Periodic (not to exceed twelve months) inspections are the OSHA 1910.179 requirements for overhead cranes. Our certified inspectors tailor each inspection plan to meet these requirements and keep your machinery functioning while also keeping the costs affordable for every operation. 

 

On a Frequent inspection, our people concentrate on safety and compliance. Every action they take is noted for review by business owners for both routine and safety checks by OSHA auditors.

 

For Periodic inspections, we examine cranes and other equipment for wear and tear from daily use. It is here they check each moving part for proper function. To ensure the best operation, our inspectors also examine the environmental conditions and power source. A severe environment (dust, chemicals, etc.) can more quickly degrade moving parts, so it may take additional steps to protect equipment in these situations.

 

Inspectors do not serve as certified electricians, but they make certain that outlets are properly installed and functioning as designed. If they do find a problem, our people inform managers and owners immediately to have needed repairs made.

 

In addition to these requirements, we also perform Gearbox and Sling and Rigging (S&R) inspections. Additional gearbox checks identify minor problems that can be easily repaired before they become a major cost issue. An S&R check provides an additional look that keeps production moving up and down as well as forward.
