Anybody working with lifting gear will know the hefty strain that this hardware is set under and the regularly many moving parts and pieces that are involved in an operation.Anything can go wrong when dealing with heavy lifting instruments.The load capacity might not match the weight of your products, workers may not have proper training and the equipment itself may be in a state of disrepair.

Any of these issues can lead to an unsafe working environment and cause serious problems. Thorough planning is essential, and only the highest quality and most robust equipment must be used. Although, despite of a well-designed and constructed equipment, it is bound to suffer wear and tear damage over its extended usage.

Certain lifting operations require usage of equipment over dozen or hundred times a day. This repeated cycle will eventually deteriorate the quality of the equipment over a period of time. This being one of the main reasons why lifting equipment inspection, testing and certification is so crucial.
