Annual Lift Inspection Program
Our annual lift inspections are based on the ALI/ANSI guidelines for recommended lift inspections. Inspections include:
- Record manufacturer name, model, serial number and load capacity
- Examine structural components of lift
- Check electrical system for proper function
- Check hydraulic system for proper function, including piping, tubing, hoses and fittings
- Check arm function including adapters, pads and telescoping stops for swing arms
- Check arm restraint systems for proper functioning
- Verify the safety shutoff on lifts having overhead structures
- Check for proper tracking and winding of equalization system
- Adjust lift chains/cables. Partial visual inspection of chains or cables will be done (this inspection covers visible portions only)
- Operate lift and check operation of lift lock systems
- Check all points requiring lubrication and lubricate if necessary
- Confirm adequacy of oil level at fully raised position where applicable
- Check all fastening devices for tightness and make necessary adjustments
- Check overall function of lift controls and operation
- Low pressure in ground lifts will be pressure tested for underground leakage
- Inspection report will be generated based on inspection
- CAD drawing will be generated based on inspection
Lift will be stickered with a numerical inspection sticker if passing inspection.
Upon completion of inspections, you will be provided with a complete lift inspection report, itemized by lift number, and noting any non-passing issues. You will also receive a CAD drawing of your shop with lifts numbered and matching your report for ease of identification, and if you opt for it, a complete repair quote to bring any non-passing lifts to passing standard.
We strive to make the process straightforward and thorough, and you will be armed with the information you need to make equipment decisions with safety in mind.
