Most overhead cranes are an integral part of the day to day operations of most businesses. A crane that breaks down can affect timelines in getting projects completed, slow down the ability to ship products as well as increasing labour costs by having employee's unable to complete their tasks efficiently. Companies are also required by the Alberta Occupation Health and Safety Act to have their overhead cranes inspected in accordance with CSA Standard B-167-96 (R2007) which specifies a minimum of once a year based on the classification of the crane.
We here at Crane Guy Corp can help you stay compliant with todays legislation with our indepth inspection program. We send out our trained technicians to inspect your crane and repair any minor deficiencies, adjust all braking systems as needed and make sure all components have the right amount of lubrication to prolong the usefullness of your crane. Once the inspection is completed you are provided with a written report of any and all deficiences that still aquire attention along with a quote to complete the repairs.

Crane Operator Safety Training
On the successful completion of the course, each attendee is issued a certificate of completion which is valid for three years, the course workbook and a handy rigging guide is also theirs to keep for future reference. Crane Guy also realizes that it is not always practical, for you the client, to shut down operations to train your employees which is why their are two options to choose from to get this training. The first option is to do the training at site with the benefit of using the cranes that are normally used in the day to day operation, the second option is to do the training here at the Crane Guy offices which will allow for less operational interference at site and the ability to send one or two employees at a time. In the interest of making the training informative and enjoyable the class sizes are kept to 8 or 10 students, this allows for better interaction with the instructor and better retention by the student.
