Crane Inspection Requirements

The U.S. Department of Labor, Occupational Safety & Health Administration requires annual inspections of hoisting machinery by a competent person who has thorough knowledge of the requirements, regulations, and standards governing equipment operation.

The inspection must occur before and during the use of the crane to ensure that it is operated safely. The owner of the machinery is required to maintain a record of the dates and results of these inspections for each hoisting machine. Any deficiencies noted during the inspection must be corrected before the crane is operated.
