At Integrity Crane and Hoist, we offer a full line of industrial overhead crane repair services. However, we also believe that an ounce of prevention goes a long way. Today, we offer insight on why it’s important to maintain a preventative maintenance schedule.
Meeting Osha Standards
In an industrial environment, maintaining OSHA standards is crucial to keeping your business in business. Scheduling routine crane maintenance and preventative services ensures that you maintain compliance with OSHA.
While crane maintenance may require a temporary suspension of work, extensive repairs can shut you down for days or weeks. During a standard crane maintenance call, a certified inspector will look for signs of damage or deterioration. All components that require lubrication will be properly serviced, and your gearbox will be oiled to manufacture recommendations. This, combined with a structural evaluation and a hands-on inspection of switches, safety devices, hooks, and other components, will help keep your production environment on the clock.
Emergency repairs are expensive, but routine maintenance can help spot major issues before they start. By getting ahead, you can prevent major system failures and the cost of downtime and repairs.
Your crane equipment is built to handle heavy loads. If it’s not up to par, components can fail, and that can put everyone in danger. By keeping up with routine maintenance, your crane and rigging systems will be safer, and your employees will feel better about their working environment.
