Annual Third Party Inspections

SWF specialises in providing a comprehensive independent onsite annual third party inspection. The inspection, also referred to as detailed visual inspection, enables the assessment of the crane system compliance, condition and detection of any damage or deterioration that may pose a safety hazard or operational concern. The inspection supplies a base for the determination of maintenance and refurbishment (or replacement) needs and to identify if further inspection or investigatory testing is required. A full report with photos for reference is provided to the client along with a Design work period assessment as required by the Australian Standards 

Annual Inspections are a requirement for all cranes taht fall under AS2550.1-2011

Also called Continued safe use assessment. The intent of the suitability for continued safe service assessment and refurbishments is to assess and ensure the vehicle loading crane system satisfies both service and safety requirements for current use; compliance with relevant Acts, Regulations, Code of practise and Australian standards.

For Mobile Crane and Vehicle Loading Cranes this major assessment is required to be completed every 10 year as per AS2550.1 – 2011
