The right equipment is essential for every job. Without it, you’re compromising the safety of your operation and the ability of your team to effectively and efficiently do the work expected of them.

Ready for Inspection?
Your hoist and crane operators–and in fact all of your people–should be familiar enough with the equipment they’re using that they know how to perform daily inspections. This means that equipment should be inspected to look for leaks, bowing, and any signs of structural wear or weakening. Simple, daily site inspections can prevent catastrophes down the road.
Much like the daily inspections, these weekly equipment checks will allow your people to track the performance and vulnerabilities with the equipment they’re relying on day after day. From a performance standpoint, equipment should be monitored and inspected to make sure equipment is operationally functional and that all safety mechanisms are performing.
Wire rope, chains, and hooks are all required–per OSHA standards–to have monthly inspections to ensure strength and integrity.
Different equipment falls under different inspection and performance requirements from OSHA. Make sure that you’re aware of the standards in place for the specific type of equipment you’re using. OSHA 1910.179 requirements dictate a yearly complete hoist and crane system inspection. Olsen is qualified to perform these inspections and document them. It’s how you can keep your operation compliant and your people safe.
