OSHA Crane & Hoist Inspections

OSHA Inspection Service from Mt. Clemens CranePeriodic inspection of your crane equipment is necessary for optimum safety and performance of your crane equipment. Completed and documented inspections are also required to satisfy ISO and MIOSHA mandates. In addition to safety assessment, regular inspection service will also contribute to a proactive approach to preventative maintenance for your crane equipment - leading to less downtime. MCC field inspectors specialize in MIOSHA crane safety regulations. Our inspectors can also test load hooks and critical electrical and mechanical components for operating condition and safety.

Reports are generated in the field and a copy is provided to the enduser upon completion of the inspection.  Additional services are available for electronic record keeping and reporting of inspections and repairs through our Crane  Ranger© and CPS software. 

In addition to a report, we perform general preventative maintenance, any necessary adjustments, and lubrication of key components. If any parts or repairs are needed, or anticipated to avoid future downtime, we will provide a detailed proposal.

 In addition to our extensive Fossil Generation Power Plant experience, Mt. Clemens Crane has specialized experience in the area of Nuclear Power Plant crane maintenance and inspections. Certain MCC Technicians are qualified as Certified Radiation Workers with Fitness For Duty (FFD) participation and have earned unescorted access in our customers facilities.

For your reference, State of Michigan - Part 18 Top Running and Gantry Cranes - Rule 408.11872 Frequent and periodic inspections:

The inspection procedure for cranes in regular service is divided into 2 general classifications based upon the intervals at which inspection should be performed. The intervals in turn are dependent upon the nature of the critical components of the crane and the degree of its exposure to wear, deterioration, or malfunction. The 2 general inspection classifications are designated as frequent and periodic, with respective intervals between inspections as specified by this rule.

  1. Frequent inspection includes examinations by a designated person who makes required records, as follows:
    (a) Monthly to quarterly (class C) or at intervals of 100 hours of use, whichever comes first. Frequent inspection includes observations during operation and of items listed in table 3.
    (b) A designated person shall determine whether conditions found during the inspection constitute a hazard and whether a more detailed inspection is required.

  2. Periodic inspection includes inspection of the equipment in place by a designated person who makes records as listed in table 3 and as follows:
    (a) Annually or at intervals of 500 hours of use, whichever comes first. Periodic inspections include observations during operation and of items listed in table 3.
    (b) Conditions of extreme duty cycle, heat, and corrosive or climatic extremes indicate a need for more frequent inspections before use.
    (c) Cranes with multiple service classifications shall be inspected in accordance with the highest rated duty classification.
    (d) A designated person shall determine whether conditions found during an inspection constitutes a hazard and whether disassembly is required for additional inspections.

  3. A crane which is used in infrequent service, that is, which has been idle for a period of 1 month of more, shall be inspected before being placed in service.
