Importance of Load Testing Overhead Cranes
With regular use, overhead cranes experience normal wear and tear that require frequent attention. Load testing is designed to ensure overhead cranes can keep up with the kind of work demanded of it. The OSHA Act mandates load testing on overhead cranes with the intention to create workplace safety. Our technicians are highly-trained to accurately conduct load testing and evaluate the working condition of your overhead crane.
Semi-annual or quarterly load tests are recommended because your overhead cranes are expected to meet inspection standards all year round. It is important to get your overhead cranes up to speed quickly and our technicians will help ensure that you stay in compliance with these regulations. While some deterioration is visibly noticeable, the assessments done in load testing can figure out if there are bigger issues present. We will purposefully overload the overhead crane to trigger limit switches and check for faulty mechanisms, including:
- Lifting and Lowering
- Rated Load Test
- Trolley and Bridge Travel
- Locking and Safety Gears
- Limit Switch Functionality
- Deformed or corroded parts
- Loose or worn out units
- Deteriorated electrical components
The purpose of load testing on your overhead crane is to expose safety hazards at work and avoid the decline of productivity. This OSHA regulation makes it a requirement to ensure your workplace is protected from harm.
