Operational/Safety Inspections of Lifting Devices

Operational/Safety Inspections of Lifting Devices

Safety is our primary concern and because there is not a single method of testing that is comprehensive enough to facilitate a decision about the overall structural integrity of equipment, we offer a variety. IIA utilizes various complementary methods of non-destructive testing, including acoustic emission, magnetic particle, ultrasonic, visual and operational inspections.

Upon completion of testing, we generate reports and discuss the findings with key personnel. A quantitative summary is then made available for fleet analysis to provide inventory and statistical information.

IIA follows the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) guidelines adopted in 1969. These standards, A92.2 and A10.31 set forth the MINIMUM test requirements that must be considered and built into quality assurance programs for vehicle-mounted aerial devices to provide safe and proper operations. The standard includes user responsibilities for periodic inspection; and at a minimum, the owner/user is to provide the following: loading, stability, visual inspections and dielectric testing of insulated units.

Effective maintenance and inspection of aerial equipment is one of the most critical factors for ensuring the safety and productivity of utility operations personnel.
