Frequent inspections are ANSI / OSHA required every three months or 150 hours of operation, whichever comes first.
If a piece of equipment has been out of service for a period longer than three months, it will need to be inspected before placing the unit back into service.
Our inspection forms include everything that the manufacturer requires at the three month interval. We inspect all functions and controls of the equipment. We inspect the machine to the standards of ANSI/OSHA and after an inspection is complete, we place an inspection label that is visible on the equipment that shows both the annual and frequent inspection dates.
In addition to frequent inspections, we preform annual inspections. These inspections are generally more comprehensive than the frequent inspections that are done on a 90-day basis. They cover every aspect of machine maintenance and operation. These inspections normally cover additional service requirements, like hydraulic oil and filters for example.
These include but are not limited to:
- Torquing turret bolts
- Checking deflection on turret bearings
- Torque hub oil replacement
- Operational speed checks
- Check for open safety bulletins from manufacturer
- Hydraulic fluid and filters
- Hydraulic oil analysis
