Overhead Crane Inspection

OSHA inspections provide a safe work environment, reduce chances of workplace injury and help to prevent down time.

The overhead cranes at your facility are essential to your production.  Your cranes were inspected by Crane-Tec upon installation and that inspection is good for 1 year assuming standard usage of the cranes.  OSHA requires annual inspections of your overhead crane moving forward. These inspections are your responsibility to set up and insure a safe work environment for your employees, lower the risk of worker injuries and keep your cranes OSHA compliant.
