Using lifting devices is a common practice in our industry. The types of lifting devices range from cranes to hoists to jacks. Regardless of the type of lifting device you are using, inspections play a vital role in the safe use of these devices.

Did you know that an employer or contractor must ensure that cranes, hoists, jacks or other lifting devices are inspected by a competent person? This is to determine whether the lifting device is in a safe working condition and must be done before the lifting device is used. 

If you require assistance in developing an inspection plan for lifting devices or are looking for inspection templates for lifting devices please contact us anytime at info@motorsafety.ca
