Crane Maintenance

It pays to ensure that your cranes are maintained and serviced correctly to comply with Workplace Health and Safety. Changes to the Australian Standards 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.
