Inspectors & Engineers are accredited to perform conformity assessments, as well as statutory and voluntary inspections on cranes, hoisting and lifting equipment across Ghana and West Africa. We can also provide training for operators of cranes, forklift and elevating platforms in accordance with local and international standards. Our crane, hoisting and lifting equipment inspection services include:

  • Checking of brakes, clutches, sheaves, and wire rope assemblies
  • Dynamic and static load testing
  • Inspection of all the structural load bearing members, including sheaves
  • Checking crane girders, rails and columns of overhead cranes to assure structural integrity
  • Line level and span crane gantry surveys
  • Non-destructive testing (NDT) of load hooks for cracks and visual inspections for distortions
  • Operational tests to assure that your unit is functioning properly
  • Periodic inspections and inspection prior to use of mechanical, structural, electrical, and safety systems, as well as of wire ropes and chains
  • Re-examination of all safety devices
  • Regulatory compliance assessments

  • Crane, hoisting and lifting equipment inspection and load testing ensure the safety and reliability of your equipment and compliance with statutory requirements. Load testing is a process that involves applying load to a structure or lifting equipment. A proof load test is a subset of the load test and it helps determine the load-bearing capacity of a structure or equipment. Load testing is mandatory to ensure the efficacy of the lifting equipment and ensure that it’s working properly. There’s no denying that it helps avoid accidents and other unfortunate incidents that can occur otherwise. Periodic proof load testing by our trained experts ensures that the device is ready and safe for use at the operational level.

    Whether you own or operate cranes, lifting or hoisting equipment, you need to ensure that they are safe, and in compliance with statutory requirements. That is where our crane, hoisting and lifting equipment inspection can help.

    Our crane, hoisting and lifting equipment inspection can help you:
  • Meet all associated regulatory requirements, with independent inspection carried out in accordance with all applicable regulations, standards and engineering practices
  • Assure the safe and proper working capability and condition of your crane or lifting and hoisting equipment
  • Maintain the capability and availability of your equipment
  • Maximize uptime and planned outages to minimize operational impact
