Pre-Shift Inspection - Overhead Bridge Crane Mobile App
The Pre-Shift Inspection - Overhead Bridge Crane form is a crane inspection form to evaluate the lifting equipment via a thorough equipment inspection performed on site.
How does it work?
Prior to the crane operator beginning any hoisting with the overhead crane, this pre-shift inspection should be performed. An inspection service on the overhead crane involves a hoist inspection, lifting equipment inspection, wire rope inspection, chain inspection, brake system evaluation, lubrication, rigging equipment, hook blocks, trolley/bridge systems, and crane compasses. The pendant control system and controllers is tested to ensure all necessary movements are utilized. Regular crane inspections are a part of a preventative maintenance program, and an overall crane safety process. Ensuring the safety of operators, and those working near a crane is of the utmost importance, and a combination of safety training, operator training, and regular inspections/maintenance can help to accomplish that key safety goal.
