Bridge Crane Proof Load Testing
Load Testing New Cranes
Newly installed cranes in manufacturing plants and other industrial facilities are required to be inspected, function tested, and proof load tested before being placed into service. This requirement is detailed in OSHA 29 CFR 1910.170. Function testing the crane at its proof load ensures that all operation features are working, most importantly the hoisting and braking functions.
Critical elements of OSHA CFR 1910.179
Hoisting and Lowering at proof load.
Bridge & Trolley travel and braking.
Operational test of limit switches.
