Daily Inspections

Crane safety starts with the operator. Periodic maintenance and safety inspections from Precision Crane will help to prevent breakdowns and alleviate safety concerns, but it is the due diligence of the operator that will best ensure the safety of himself and that of his fellow co-workers.

Precision Crane’s Preventative Maintenance Inspections meet and exceed both WorkSafeBC and CSA requirements.

Our Preventative Maintenance Inspections are among the most comprehensive and thorough crane service programs. Our fully qualified crane technicians will complete a detailed inspection of your equipment locating potential safety issues, while simultaneously performing a series of maintenance tasks designed to prevent possible breakdowns and failures in the near future. The primary objective of our Preventative Maintenance Inspection (PMI) is to increase your workplace safety and productivity, while decreasing crane-related costs and downtime. Maintenance and annual inspections are required by both WorkSafeBC and CSA. Detailed Service & Inspection Reports, along with a quote itemizing any recommended repairs are provided to the customer after each PMI is completed.
