Leave nothing to chance in occupational safety. As an owner of cranes and hoists, electrical installations and equipment, you are responsible for the protection of your staff. Our regular safety inspections improve the security of your equipment. They ensure that hazards, such as personal injury or damaged equipment caused by falling loads, are identified and can be prevented in good time – and that statutory accident prevention regulations are satisfied.
Regardless of whether you operate Demag equipment or products made by other manufacturers – we aim to ensure fully safe operation. Our highly qualified service specialists are authorised to carry out safety inspections on all types of equipment.
We organise and carry out all of your required lifting equipment safety inspections – with state-of-the-art expertise and a wealth of experience, helping you to meet your legal obligations as an owner and operator of industrial equipment.
Regular safety inspections are not only decisive for the safety of your plant and equipment – they also extend product service life as damage and wear can be detected and rectified in good time.
On your behalf, we carry out the regular visual inspections and function checks as required by relevant regulations. At the same time, we check whether your plant and equipment is in a safe operating condition at the time of the inspection.
Risk assessment is the key to reducing industrial accidents, occupational disease and work-related illness. It is also decisive for greater efficiency and increased competitiveness. Benefit from our wealth of experience with all types of cranes and hoists for the necessary assessment of risks relating to all aspects or work performed by crane operators and riggers.
We can compile risk assessments for the owners of crane installations to assess working conditions as specified in relevant regulations. Our many years of experience and our constantly growing database enable our experts to make a reliable assessment on the basis of the relevant risk specifications.
European Council Directive 89/391/EEC obliges employers to plan and implement all occupational safety measures necessary to safeguard the health of their employees.
The risk assessment serves to define risks in working areas or at specific workplaces and forms the basis for measures that have to be taken by the owner of an installation. The risk assessment aims to help eliminate causes at their source or to reduce risks by means of technical or organisational measures or by the employees’ personal conduct.
Our SWP calculation provides you with reliable information on the remaining service life of your chain and rope hoists. We calculate the loads lifted by your hoist and the elapsed share of its theoretical duration of service, which enables us to guarantee the remaining safe working period (SWP). These checks can be carried out for any chain or rope hoist brand, since we have extensive experience of all products.
As an owner and operator of rope and chain hoists, you are required to check them at least once per year according to relevant regulations. The elapsed share of their theoretical safe working period must also be calculated.
Safe and reliable load handling is of prime importance in materials handling installations. Ageing and wear, however, can easily result in hazards, which may become highly dangerous if they are not addressed in good time.
We reliably test the integrity of your electrical equipment. In a meeting with you, we will discuss any measures that may be necessary to maintain or restore the safety and reliability of your electrical equipment according to relevant accident prevention regulations and codes of practice. In this way, we help you to ensure compliance with all safety regulations.
Employers are obliged to ensure that electrical equipment is in good operating condition before it is put into service and at regular intervals. Electrical equipment as defined by relevant accident prevention regulations includes all equipment that can be used as a whole or as individual parts for the application of electric power or for the transfer, distribution and processing of information. Furthermore, it also includes plant and installations that are created by combining electric equipment. They are considered to be safe if there is no direct or indirect danger of personal injury if they are correctly operated and used as intended. Their "safe condition" also includes any protection required against external factors.
Inspection intervals must be selected to ensure that any defects that occur can be detected in good time. Property insurers and Demag recommend regular inspections for cranes. The inspection must be carried out by a qualified electrician in accordance with all relevant electrical regulations. Occupational accident insurance organisations, such as the Industrial Employers' Mutual Insurance Association in Germany, also require tests and inspections to be recorded with entries specifying when inspections are carried out.
