Canadian provinces regulate overhead lifting equipment by stating that Employers and Employees shall follow the guidelines set forth by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME). ASME B30.9 covers wire rope slings, chain slings, web slings or synthetic slings and round slings. ASME B30.20 covers below the hook lifting devices such as spreader bars, spreader beams, lifting magnets, vacuum lifters, tirfors, lever hoists (pullers), manual hoists (Chain fall), and plate clamps.
Within the ASME standards it states that all lifting equipment shall undergo a periodic inspection at a minimum of at least once a year. Periodic inspections may be required could be more frequent depending on the duty cycle of the equipment. A periodic inspection is a documented visual inspection completed by a competent person. Typical industry practice now also includes a load test or proof test of the lifting equipment at this time. Load testing or proof testing is a great tool for verifying the lifting equipment is safe for use in the field.
By having a third party, competent, experienced inspector perform visual inspections and proof tests on your lifting equipment you eliminate potential safety hazards within your organization. Safety is an important role in industry today and many multinational companies are demanding suppliers and sub-contractors to comply with their often stringent safety standards. Inspectall can help you achieve these standards so your organization can operate efficiently and safely.
Equipment such as plate clamps, tirfors, manual hoists and lever hoists often require more frequent repairs throughout the year. If this applies to your organization, please contact Inspectall. Inspectall will work on a set schedule to pick up these items at your facility, perform necessary repairs and return back to your facility once repairs and re-certifications are complete.
