FAQ's:

What standards cover OH crane operation?

A-OSHA 1910.179 and ASME B30.2 Over Head and Gantry Cranes

As an overhead crane owner, what should I know about my crane?

It is best to be mindful of what machine you are using, its capabilities, and the condition of the crane. You should also understand the crane duty classification, properly schedule maintenance and document all crane matters.

Does your company provide on-site inspections?

Yes! Crane Safety offers on-site inspections, service, and repair of all overhead cranes.

How often does an OH crane need to be inspected?

At a minimum, annually. However, this is typically for OH cranes that operate under normal conditions, except that chain and wire ropes must be inspected and documented monthly. Depending on the service class, additional inspections would be required for heavy and severe service.

How do I know which service classification my cranes have?

Your crane’s service classifications are based on how much weight must be lifted, the frequency of lifts, and the desired height of the lifted load. Crane Safety Associates of America can assist you with identifying the crane’s service classification to determine your need.

Where can I find information on inspecting my cranes?

ASME B30.2-2.1.1 and the manufacturer operating manuals.

What constitutes a critical lift on an overhead crane?

A load greater than 75% of the OH crane’s capacity, lifting loads that are not in the operator’s view, lifts made with two cranes, irregular non-routine lifts, and challenging rigging applications constitute a critical lift.

Are you required to disassemble the hoist every year for inspections?

Only sometimes. During the inspection, how far you must disassemble the hoist is usually determined. Your hoist manual, provided by the manufacturer, will provide recommendations for procedures and inspection intervals.
