  • Inspector/Crane Operator:

  • Date and time of inspection:

  • Crane Number:

  • Check that the crane or hoist is not tagged with an our of order sign

  • Test run each motion to ensure they are working properly

  • Check for excessive drift in each motion of the crane and that stopping distance is normal

  • Check that the upper limit device stops the lifting motion of the hoist load block before striking any part of the hoist or crane

  • Check for any sign of oil leakage on the crane and on the floor beneath the crane.

  • Check for any unusual sound from the crane or hoist mechanism while operating the crane or hoist.

  • Check that warning and other safety labels are not missing and are legible.

  • Check area for accumulation of material to prevent tripping or slipping. Also ensure there is plenty of lighting in the area.

  • Additional Comments or Requirements

  • Had issues with oil leakage earlier in the project so will contact the maintenance tech and have him check it again.

  • Safety labels are still okay, but might needs some fresh ones in the next few ones in the next few weeks as they are becoming harder to read and we have some new operators in.

  • Signature of Inspector/Operator:
