Cincinnati Crane & Hoist can customize an inspection and preventative maintenance program to suit your company's needs while keeping your company in compliance with all OSHA required guidelines.
Our routine inspections will reduce your costs by identifying worn parts prior to a breakdown, which allows for planned repairs.
We strongly believe that proper inspections and routine preventative maintenance will:
Decrease the potential for injury from equipment failure
Increase production by reducing or eliminating crane breakdowns
Increase the lifespan of your crane equipment
Cincinnati Crane can provide load test certifications for all of your cranes and hoists. All cranes and hoists must be certified by testing their lifting capacity with 125% of the rated capacity. This must be completed on any newly installed crane prior to being placed in service and for any crane or hoist that has had any repairs done to load bearing parts.
