Large contractors and construction companies can benefit from owning one or more cranes, but owning cranes has significant responsibilities. Crane failure in operation can be catastrophic or even fatal.
For this reason, the crane should be checked periodically by an experienced crane service company who knows the machine thoroughly.
There are many reasons why a professional should inspect your crane.
1. This is the law
OSHA requires cranes to be checked regularly by qualified personnel on a set schedule based on the frequency of crane usage. Cranes that are used extensively may need to be inspected monthly to verify their serviceability.
2. Maintain security
Some machines on a construction site can cause more chaos if they break down at the wrong time. The crane is supposed to lift and swing large weights. One critical failure has the potential to destroy the project or cause a large number of injuries.
3. Reducing repair costs
Crane inspection costs are much cheaper than major damage. By checking your faucet regularly, you can spot minor maintenance problems before they become bigger problems. Overhauls are so expensive that even a major overhaul can easily cost you more than a lifetime inspection.
4. Maintenance of operational conformity
The only way to determine how well your crane can lift is to carry out regular inspections and maintenance to keep the crane fully operational. If your crane is not checked, there is no way to know if it is lifting the load it should. Again, you can't offer this guarantee to prospects without a check.
