Crane Inspection Requirements

The U.S. Department of Labor, Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) requires annual inspections of hoisting machinery by a competent person who has thorough knowledge of the requirements, regulations and standards governing equipment operation. The inspection must occur before and during the use of the crane to ensure that it is operated safely. The owner of the crane is required to maintain a record of the dates and results of these inspections for each hoisting machine. Any deficiencies noted during the inspection must be corrected before the crane is operated.

Crane Inspection Services

Cranes & Material Handling offers crane inspections that satisfy all OSHA requirements. Our OSHA inspections are conducted by factory trained technicians and include an in-depth visual and operational inspection of your crane. We put the crane through its normal operating cycles, removing safety covers for accurate inspection of concealed areas. In addition, lubrication, fluid, and torque services are provided.

A detailed list of items that require servicing or replacement in order for your unit to meet applicable OSHA standards is provided. The placement of correct safety warning stickers and operational safety devices is part of these standards. Once the standards are met, the OSHA report and inspection sticker that Cranes & Material Handling, Inc. supplies will certify that your crane is operating safely and allows you access to government funded job sites.

First Year OSHA Certification

When you purchase your crane at Cranes & Material Handling, the first year OSHA certification is mounted on the machine and keeps it in compliance for the initial year of ownership. There is no charge for this service.
