Equipment Inspections

Properly maintained cranes are essential for safe and productive operations

Inspections are critical factors in reduced maintenance costs and extended equipment life. Operators and entire projects rely on these units to perform structurally, mechanically, and functionally.

CICB Crane Inspections

With over 50 years of work history, CICB’s true third party Crane Inspections are the most comprehensive evaluations and crane inspections in the lifting industry. 

Depending on the governing bodies of our customers’ material handling and lifting equipment, our inspectors, who are employees of Crane Inspection & Certification Bureau (CICB), are all trained, competent, qualified NCCCO Certified, and accredited for inspecting cranes of all types including Mobile, Gantry, Tower, Pedestal, Jib, and Overhead Cranes/Hoists, Winches, Rigging, Aerial Lifts, Forklifts, and Earth moving equipment to any standards or corporate policies and procedures.

These include OSHA, ANSI/ASME, CMAA, USACE 385-1-1, AFOSH, NAVFAC P-307, DOE, DOD, API, Loler, and BS7121 Standards and Laws for its annual inspections. CICB is accredited by OSHA in 29CFR Part 1919 for providing Maritime Annual and Quadrennial crane and rigging gear inspections, for those cranes used to load and off load goods for sale in commerce.
