CRANE SERVICE SCHEDULE
Year on year across all industries the complexity and cost of compliance appears to increase. Ensuring your business satisfies the relevant requirements is a cost of doing business today. Whilst the cost of compliance is a mandatory financial forecast in your annual plan, it is worth remembering that the cost of non compliance is significantly more.
CRANE COMPLIANCE CHECKLIST
Source – Approved Code of Practice for Cranes
“Cranes are to be inspected and issues with a certificate of inspection by the inspection body at intervals not exceeding 12 months”
DESIGNATED DESIGN LIFE
“A crane’s design life may not be the same as its actual life and depends on such factors as its classification, usage and its operating environment. As the end of the design life of a crane approaches, at periodic intervals, an inspection and testing shall be carried out in order to determine that the crane will remain safe for continued use. This is likely to be over and above the routine inspection process.”
“Every controller of a crane shall take all practicable steps to ensure that every crane is maintained in a safe condition and in accordance with the manufacturers instructions at all times”
