Hoisting Apparatus Inspection: Articulating Boom Cranes - Daily and Annual Mobile App
There are many manufacturers of hoisting equipment.
How does it work?
These hoists all operate on the same basic principles to facilitate material handling in shops, factories and heavy work areas. Common faults encountered with hoists are unsafe cables or chains, faulty brakes and defective limit switches.
To prevent these types of issues, it is critical to perform regular daily inspections and annual inspections of the hoisting apparatus, and it must be certified in writing that the apparatus meets the manufacturer’s specifications for hoist safety purposes. The results of the annual/periodic inspections, including any repairs, adjustments and other findings need to be included in the logbook as well and made available to an officer upon request. The Hoisting Apparatus Inspection: Articulating Boom Cranes - Daily and Annual app helps with this process and ensures that the hoist inspection checklist is completed properly.
