Rigging Inspection & Safety Evaluations
Many Peter Albrecht rigging systems have been in operation for decades without fail and while “out of sight, out of mind” is a compliment to everyone involved in the original installation, it’s not a good operations strategy. Components wear. Routine inspection is a vital part of a successful safety plan.
Why put safety at risk? Contact us today to perform a rigging inspection that fits in your schedule and budget. We pledge prompt and courteous expert service. Today’s rigging systems are designed with a safety factor of 8:1 or more and often manufactured by companies with decades of experience, but even the most robust equipment needs inspection. We pledge prompt and courteous expert service. We will come check any installation and make any changes on the spot.
We are often asked what OSHA and other regulatory agencies require for safety inspections. We have often referenced OSHA 29 CFR, 1926.550, (a), (6) which was a broader document covering cranes and derricks. It read, “A thorough, annual inspection of the hoisting machinery shall be made by a competent person, or by a government or private agency recognized by the U.S. Department of Labor. The employer shall maintain a record of the dates and results of inspections for each hoisting machine and piece of equipment.”
Scroll down to 1910.179(j)(1)((ii) for information on inspection intervals.
Regardless on interpretation of applicability of OSHA’s document or other state regulations, we believe that not conducting inspections at least annually puts people at risk. It is simply not possible to tell if a system is safe based on noise and floor level observation. Customers agree that the real purpose of an inspection is to identify potentially dangerous component wear–not to check off a legal requirement. Our inspections are centered around that fact.
Peter Albrecht rigging inspections provide a practical and cost-effective review of every significant component of the rigging system. Our experience as designer, manufacturer and installer of motorized hoist systems makes us a great choice for this work. Let us help:
Find and fix or replace worn cable, sheaves and other rigging components.
Identify improper terminations and equipment application.
Check controls and limit switches for proper operation.
