Maintenance and inspection of Lifting Equipments

Accidents may happen because lifting equipment is not inspected and maintained regularly. All equipment should be thoroughly examined prior to it being put into service and after there has been any major alteration that could affect its operation. UES do it spick and span. We Universal engineering are the supreme supplier of Lifting beams especially spreader beams, Lifting slings and shackles, crane lifting and other hook lifting equipments all over UAE. As the consultant in Middle Eastern countries, we mainly focus on tip toe solutions on your lifting equipment needs.

Lifting equipment may need to be thoroughly examined at intervals laid down in an examination scheme drawn up by a competent person, taking into account the manufacturer’s recommendations and national regulations. All examinations must be undertaken by a competent person who is sufficiently independent and impartial in order that an objective decision can be made.

What needs to be examined depends on the professional judgment of the competent person undertaking the examination. For most common lifting equipment and accessories, there are standard procedures and criteria. Methods include a visual examination and functional checks, measurements of wear, traditional non-destructive testing and load testing.

Where an examination scheme has been drawn up, this should identify and specify the parts to be thoroughly examined, the methods of examination and testing and the intervals for examination (and testing of the different parts, where appropriate).

Reports and defects

Records should be kept of all thorough examinations and inspections for all lifting equipment and lifting accessories. Any defects noticed should be immediately reported to the supervisor for correction. If any defect affects the safe operation of the machine, it should be rectified before the machine is used.

Effective action should be taken to manage risks by ensuring the lifting equipment is not used until the defect is remedied. Such defects must be confirmed in writing in the report, even if it is remedied immediately (e.g. by destruction of a sling). The person making the report must also notify the relevant enforcing authority with a copy of the report. Enforcing authorities may follow up such reports to check that risks are being adequately managed.
