Top 4 Crane Inspection Checklists
Tower Crane Daily Operator Checklist
Use this template to inspect a tower crane before, during and after operational shifts. Begin by conducting pre-operation checks by recording work permits issued, evaluate operator’s competency and check emergency controls. Next, inspect the components of the crane by capturing photo defects and observe if safety measures were applied. Lastly, assess the post job operation to ensure that the crane is safely unattended. Provide final recommendations during end of shift to improve crane safety.
Overhead Crane Pre-task Inspection
This template can be used by operators to conduct daily safety checks for overhead cranes prior to use at the beginning of each shift.
