Overhead Crane Inspections for Industries in the Southwest

Cranes should be periodically checked and inspected to make sure that everything is operating in a normal manner. Here, at Southwestern Industrial Contractors, the safety of our customers and employees is our number one priority. This is why we offer overhead crane inspections in addition to our crane rental services.

Working in a safe and effective manner is essential to construction sites. We go the extra mile for our customers by conducting inspections when they’re due. Just like all of our hauling and rigging services, we put safety first. If you need to get your crane inspected, you can come to us to run a comprehensive and quick inspection.

Our Crane Inspection Services

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires all cranes and other equipment to be inspected regularly. Periodic inspections look for loose bolts, cracked and eroded parts, and excessive wear and tear.

What to Expect During an Inspection

In order to pass inspections, cranes must meet a list of requirements regarding design and performance that make sure the cranes operate safely and properly. During the inspection, we ensure that your crane is in tip-top shape by inspecting for broken and eroded parts, checking the engine, and examining the machine’s brakes and chains.

There are two main kinds of inspections that need to be done on your cranes; periodic inspections and frequent inspections. Periodic inspections are done routinely throughout the year to both cranes that are in and out of use. Cranes that are not in use are inspected based on three different criteria; if the crane hasn’t been operated for more than one month but less than six months, the crane will need to be inspected for usability errors and cracked or worn down parts as they comply with OSHA. The crane will go through a similar but more detailed inspection if it’s been idle for more than six months.
