Stay In OSHA Compliance With A Hoist Inspection And One Year Certification Hoist Inspections keeps companies in OSHA compliance. Hoist are required to be visually inspected by a qualified person and certified once a year. Every aspect of the hoist must be inspected and any deficiencies must be written up and the owner must bring hoist into compliance to be rendered safe to operate. Promotes a safe working environment.
Whether You Have A Mobile Crane, A Ship Crane, Or A Large Container Crane You Have A Crane Inspection Partner In Us Similar to hoist inspections but on a much larger scale. Through our subsidiary RRR Warehouse & Service, Inc., we can inspect mobile cranes, ship’s crane, large container cranes, etc.
“Avoid Snapping Crane Wires By Letting Consolidated Rigging Replace Your Old Wire Rope and Load Test Your Crane For You” When the wire rope on your crane has reached the end of its lifespan, or if you’re concerned it’s condition is deteriorating and might need testing, call Consolidated Rigging and let us handle all the dirty work. After many hours of duty cycle, the lube on wire rope picks up all sorts of grime. This can lead to damage and breaking of the wire, which is why they must be replaced on a regular basis. We have the equipment, the man power, and the expertise to off load the old rope and install new rope. We also calibrate and adjust to take the slack out and advance if necessary. Not all wire rope change outs are the same: A crane may have a “left lay” and a “right lay” drum which requires skill to install. Additionally, we perform an inspection of the wire rope sheaves which can be the main cause of wire rope failure. We also have the personnel and equipment to load test the crane after installation.

“To Ensure The Quality And Safety Of Our Products, Consolidated Rigging Tests The Load Capacity And Even Supplies You With A Record In Case An Inspector Comes Knocking” Proof load testing is what Consolidated does to ensure quality in all of our products. We rig the assembly into our “test bed” and perform a static pull, increasing the tension all the way to double the safe working load. While all of our rigging products are built with a 4:1 ratio for load capacity, we pull to twice that safe working load to ensure the strength and safety of our product line. If that does not satisfy your concerns, we will make an extra assembly exactly like the one that you have ordered and we will perform what is called a “destructive” test. This means we pull the assembly until it is destroyed. We print out a report which graphs the point at which it broke. We believe the safety of our equipment comes down to this: “The proof is in the pudding.” And we happily provide that proof. You will have a record for your files and we will keep a copy as added security. We perform these test for many of our clients. The US Navy has Consolidated Rigging test their rigging on a consistent basis.

Avoid Death Or Injury Of Workers And Create A Stronger More Efficient Workforce Certified and trained personnel hold classes that qualify workers to use rigging products in the proper way and how to avoid injury and death.
Improper rigging can result in injury or death when workers are lifting heavy weight. This training helps companies to avoid death of workers or injury. An educated work force is a stronger, more efficient work force. This training also fosters pride among workers as they become educated, and to respect the trade and the weight being lifted. This training brings companies in OSHA compliance and reduces liability.
