Crane servicing and maintenance is an important part of owning lifting equipment. It has to be kept in the right condition to make sure it will be safe to use, adhering to all health and safety regulations to minimise the possibility of harm. The lifting industry and the operation of lifting equipment is heavily regulated, so you must ensure you comply with regulations to avoid being penalised.
Here are some of the points you must bear in mind when having a crane serviced:
• Regularity of inspections. In accordance with LOLER and PUWER, you must have your crane serviced regularly.
• Qualifications of the inspector. The inspection must be completed by a regulated body who can comply with LOLER and PUWER.
• The cost of the service. Whilst cost is important to all businesses, the cheapest won’t necessarily be the right option. Remember that a regular service will keep your crane working to its optimum levels, so you should view it as an investment.
