A Tower Crane Inspection
This Tower Crane was give a "clean bill of health" by the installers. They provided the typical, 1-page inspection form and were on their way. Luckily, the company hired Barth Crane Inspections a few years ago to do a 3rd party inspection. We found many deficiencies that the other "inspectors" missed.
Some were serious safety issues. Fortunately we were able to identify these issues BEFORE the crane went in to service, and more importantly, before anyone had a chance to get injured. Below are a sampling of the deficiencies we noted in our report. We don't perform inspections any longer, but please use a certified third-party to inspect your tower crane before it is used on the job site.
