What’s on the crane inspection checklist?
The overall crane inspection service provided by M&L Truck Service looks over many functions to ensure safety and functionality operation. Many operating mechanisms will be reviewed to ensure proper operation, such as wear points, labeling check for ratings, an inspection of the cable stretched out, the winch, the wire rope, hardware checks and checks for any deterioration or leaking in lines, tanks, valves or other parts in the hydraulic systems.
The Importance of a Crane Inspection
According to OSHA regulations, all active overhead cranes are required to be inspected annually. Daily or weekly usage can wear out important crane components. Wear and tear on a crane is no different than on a vehicle, it can lead to a breakdown – or worse, a dangerous failure that puts you, your team or your company at high risk. Scheduling an overhead crane inspection can avoid any catastrophic break downs and additionally help identify potential problems.
