At Olsen Chain & Cable, we do more than sell strong, reliable lifting equipment. We also support our customers as they install that equipment, use it, inspect it, and keep it operational. It’s part of our commitment at Olsen to make sure that the work we do … OSHA compliance and occupational safety
Inspect Your Equipment so You Can Protect Your People
Part of keeping your operation in good working order is ensuring that you are performing regular safety inspections on all of your equipment. From daily assessments by your operators to monthly and annual inspections, each step in your inspection process protects your equipment so that you can protect your people.
These are daily checks that must be performed at the beginning of each shift. The operator of the lifting equipment must perform a spot check of all operational equipment, ensuring all parts are in good, working condition and checking for any areas of compromise or unusual wear and tear. We can provide your team with the training and checklists you need to make sure these inspections are part of your daily routine.
All wire rope, chains, and hooks must be inspected on a monthly basis. That inspection must be documented and filed to protect your company and to report to OSHA as needed. Olsen Chain & Cable is certified to perform each of these monthly inspections for your company.
Just like the monthly inspection standards and process, Olsen Chain & Cable is certified and able to meet all of your company’s annual inspection requirements, protecting your operation and keeping you in compliance with operational guidelines.
Annual inspections to keep aware of:
Your hoist systems must undergo a complete inspection every year according to OSHA regulation 1910.179. These inspections must also be documented and filed accordingly.
Nylon, Polyester, Cable, and Chain Slings must be inspected annually according to OSHA 1910.184 & ASME B30.9 requirements.
Fall Protection Equipment Inspections are required according to OSHA 1926.502 Regulations for Construction and OSHA 1910.66 Standards, in addition to OSHA and ANSI A10.32-2012 and ANSI Z359 Fall Protection Code.
*Olsen Chain & Cable is able to conduct all of these annual inspections
