Crane Safety Inspections in Edmonton, AB

The Importance of Regular Crane Inspections

Crane inspections are a crucial part of routine crane maintenance. A crane inspection ensures all parts are operating safely and correctly and that the environment in which the crane is being used is safe enough to support its use. Anyone using a crane in the construction, transportation, manufacturing, or other commercial industries is required to have the equipment undergo a comprehensive physical inspection, including load testing, each year according to the rules set forth by WorkSafe BC and other federal and local rules. At TK Truck Body, we provide crane inspections in the Edmonton, AB area. Our inspections are certified by a professional engineer and comply with all necessary rules and regulations. Call us today to schedule crane inspection services.

Crane Safety Inspection Components

To maintain compliance with all regulatory bodies, crane inspections must include a full physical assessment and inspection of all structural, mechanical, and operational components of the system. We work through a comprehensive crane inspection checklist to maintain quality control and ensure our services are accurate, precise, and compliant. Here is what we check for when performing crane inspections:

  • Structural crane inspections of crane mountings, base, boom system, winches, hooks, latches, load lines, outriggers, and stabilizers.
  • Mechanical crane inspections of the hydraulic system, extension and retraction cables, sheaves, mounting bolts, wear pads, rotation bearings, and gears.
  • Operational crane inspections of mounted and remote controls, safety devices, load tests, cylinder drift tests, and proper crane operation according to the OEM.

Each member of our team has years of experience and knows everything there is to know about proper and safe crane operation, maintenance, repairs, and inspections. We are also fully educated on all rules, regulations, laws, and guidelines. If our inspection uncovers any issues, we can perform certified repairs and maintenance services.

How We Identify Risks and Opportunities for Improvement

Implementing a proactive crane inspection program and preventive maintenance program will improve safety and productivity in your facility. You can also limit liability, reduce the risk of accidents and injuries, and enhance worker morale and efficiency. Our crane inspections give us the chance to identify risks and opportunities for improvement. Our team will help you design a personalized crane maintenance plan and will make the crane inspection process stress-free and thorough so you can reduce downtime and improve the reliability of your crane systems. When we inspect, service, or maintain your crane systems we use our Risk and Recommendation Method to fully document all issues and prioritize corrective actions. We begin with evaluating the age and condition of your systems. We then inspect and assess it for deficiencies, failures, and violations and provide detailed information about its shortcomings. We can then categorize these issues as a safety risk, production risk, or undetermined risk. We offer detailed recommendations for improvement, which we discuss with you during the inspection review. Our crane inspections utilize simple, effective, and proven elements that ensure success:

  • Using highly trained inspectors and technicians for crane inspections
  • Performing preventive maintenance inspections
  • Performing routine crane maintenance
  • Conducting annual risk assessments
  • Providing remote monitoring service to identify risks before they become a problem
  • Offering review and consultation services
  • Utilising maintenance and management software to streamline processes

How Often Should You Schedule Crane Inspections?

We recommend that you adhere to manufacturer requirements that dictate how often your cranes should be inspected. Annual inspections can be cost-effective and identify and prevent future problems that will only get bigger and more expensive if they are ignored. If your local regulations require annual inspections, we will provide a crane certification and inspection report that you can use. Otherwise, we recommend that you comply with industry standards and manufacturer recommendations.
