Cranes play a vital role in the construction, transport, and manufacturing industry as one of the most expensive pieces of equipment used to hoist extremely large or heavy materials both vertically and horizontally. In depth analysis of these trades shows a significant number of injuries and fatalities can be directly attributed to crane related accidents – typically amounting to thousands of dollars in equipment damage, liability and other related costs. In addition to preventative maintenance, a crane can perform safely, optimally, and economically when operated within the design parameters specified by the manufacturer. For this reason, proper daily inspection as mandated by OSHA standard 1910.179(j)(1) is both crucial and necessary to maintaining a crane’s function and value but more importantly, preventing accidents and injuries from defective equipment.
