CRANE INSPECTIONS TO AUSTRALIAN STANDARDS

Current changes to the Australian Standards AS2550.1-2011 and AS2550.3-2002 relating to overhead cranes and hoists, have resulted in more frequent general service inspections and additional in-depth inspections to be carried out at specific intervals during the working life of the overhead crane.

These changes now require the inspections to be carried out as per the following extracts from AS2550.3-2002:

  • Routine Maintenance Service – Section 7.2.2
    Routine maintenance service shall be carried out at intervals not exceeding three (3) months apart, unless the crane is not in service.
  • Major Inspection of Mechanical Components for Assessment for Continued Safe Operation – Section 7.3.4 & 7.4.1
    This assessment should be carried out at 10 year intervals for the mechanical components – Please refer to the 10 year mechanical inspection requirements for further details.
  • Re-certification for Continued Safe Operation – Section 7.4.1
    This assessment should be carried out at 25 year intervals or where the crane has been subjected to an overload greater than 10% of the rated capacity for either or both the structure and hoist – Please refer to the 25 year Re-certification requirements for further details.
