Keeping your overhead crane in service and in peak operating condition, is a top priority for you, us, and OSHA. So, what happens when there’s an incident with your overhead crane and OSHA gets called? What do you do to fix the situation and how do you keep it from happening again? In this episode of the OSHA Inspection Series, we sat down with Mazzella’s Service Manager, Billy Poe Jr. to cover overhead cranes.
