If you’re in charge of maintaining your company’s manufacturing equipment and machinery, take a second to think about how much responsibility actually falls on your shoulders. On a day-to-day basis, you may be responsible for the upkeep and maintenance of any of the following:
- Bridge cranes, workstation cranes, gantry cranes, or jib cranes
- Hydraulic presses
- Tool and die equipment
- Tow motors, man lifts, or scissor lifts
- CNC machines, lathes, or mill machinery
On top of all that, you’re probably also responsible for the inspection and maintenance of any overhead lifting slings, rigging hardware, below-the-hook devices, and personal fall protection that your employees use on a daily basis.
As we all know, OSHA and ASME have some type of standard or regulation related to the usage and inspection of each piece of equipment in your shop or facility. It can make your head spin trying to make sure that your facility is in good standing with sanctioning bodies and that your employee’s equipment is compliant, in proper working condition, and safe for them to use.
