OSHA, ASME, and CMAA require you to perform a periodic inspection on your overhead crane. Inspection frequency can be quarterly to annually and is based on service, environment, and application factors. A periodic inspection is a detailed visual and operational inspection where individual components are examined to determine their condition.
Many maintenance supervisors and plant mangers mistakenly think that they are in compliance with inspection standards if they have their crane equipment inspected once a year. This misconception can be costly and lead to fines and downtime if OSHA were to come on-site and issue citations after performing an audit.
In this video we discuss how often your cranes need to be inspected and how much that inspection will cost.
