Mobile Crane Jobsite Inspection Checklist Template

Damage to construction sites and surrounding buildings from crane accidents can quickly overwhelm and even drown a company in legal suits. That's why overhead crane inspections are paramount when it comes to maintaining safe operation during lifting on construction sites. In this template, you'll find a step-by-step guide on what comes before, during, and after crane set up and use. Make sure your operator is properly trained and has the right licenses before they enter the cab. Pre-start inspections are just as important when it comes to preventing accidents. You'll want to make sure the equipment, main hoist, trolley, runways, attached load, and moving load are secure, maintained, and have the proper licenses before starting construction. In addition, verify that you have a spotter and that there are no powerlines or other obstacles in the vicinity that the crane could accidentally snag while lifting its load.
