WE KNOW YOU PROBABLY HAVE A FEW QUESTIONS

When are crane inspections required?

According to OSHA (and, of course, we’re paraphrasing) crane inspections are required:

  • Frequent (Daily) — conducted by the operator
  • Periodic (Monthly) — conducted by the employer
  • Periodic (Annual)  — using an independent third party is HIGHLY recommended
  • If the piece of equipment has been modified, repaired, or adjusted in a way that has an impact on the safe operation of the crane.
What about load testing?
  • For mobile cranes: if there is a structural repair, the crane should be load tested.
  • For overhead cranes: all new, extensively repaired, or altered cranes should be tested.
Who can inspect or load test cranes?

Only companies or individuals who are qualified to perform such services. Crane U is qualified to inspect cranes as per OSHA 1910, 1926, and ANSI/ASME guidelines.
