Crane Inspections:

WM Services perform daily equipment inspections to ensure safety in all construction project procedures. Our crane operators and crane inspectors perform these daily inspections to check all parts of the crane equipment, to make sure all crane parts are functioning according to its proper order. From the brakes and hoist, to control devices and the hook, to unusual sounds and oil leaks, nothing gets by our crane inspectors. If there is something out of the ordinary, our crane equipment is taken in for further inspection and repair. WM Services makes sure to follow proper inspection guides and   load charts assigned to equipment, to avoid hazardous situations involving the crane equipment.

Transportation paths and ground conditions are also double checked for safety purposes, and trial lifts are performed routinely to ensure the equipment’s functionality and operation. With weeks, months, and sometimes years of preparation, our engineers and project planners are able to account for every project detail and execute it with logistical precision. Our certified crane engineers play a major role in the safety of each project. With vigilant inspections and compliance to safety codes, we ensure crane equipment safety and project success. Safety is the first priority in all of our work.
