Crane and Hoist Inspections

Inspections for safety and compliance

Crane inspections are designed to assess the safety of equipment, detect wear and tear and identify maintenance needs for safe, productive operation. Inspections can also verify that your equipment complies with current local standards and regulations, helping you avoid costly fines and disruption of operations.

In addition to regular crane inspections it is beneficial to develop a comprehensive plan of preventive maintenance, scheduled repairs and advanced services that take a deeper look at your crane and its components. With a coordinated program, you can more effectively maintain a safer, more reliable and compliant operation.

Preventive maintenance program

Service tailored to your requirements

An effective preventive maintenance program consists of preventive maintenance inspections, compliance inspections where applicable, and routine maintenance. The objective is to help you comply with regulations, follow manufacturer’s recommendations for maintenance, and to reduce the likelihood of failures that result in unplanned downtime.  

We tailor our service programs to your operations, taking into account the equipment, its usage, operating environment, duty class, service history, manufacturer's recommendations and statutory requirements.

Risk & Recommendation Method

Identifying risks and improvement opportunities

Whenever we service your equipment, we apply our Risk and Recommendation Method to document and prioritize corrective actions. 

We first inspect a component to evaluate its condition. When then note and failures, deficiencies and/or violations and categorize them as either a safety risk, production risk or an undetermined condition. We’ll also identify any improvement opportunities. We make recommendation for corrective actions and discuss them with you during our review process.  

You can also see a summary of risks and recommendations on our customer portal yourKONECRANES.com
