Tips for better identification of lifting equipment for periodic inspection

Safe lifting and transporting of heavy loads requires perfectly functioning lifting equipment. Worn lifting equipment can quickly have significant consequences, so regular inspection is very important.

Workshop equipment

In order to ensure the best possible safety, the law requires regular inspection of work equipment. Lifting equipment and load handling devices such as lifting points and lifting magnets are considered work equipment subject to inspection and therefore must be checked regularly.

How often must ready-to-use work equipment for lifting loads be inspected?

  • Yearly inspection
    by competent and appropriately trained employees
  • Inspection every four years
    by engineer consultants or an appropriately accredited inspector.

Examples of relevant defects

Wear in contact areas

Missing or defective parts

Limited function of the components

Document inspection results

After successful inspection, the results must be recorded in an inspection report. During the documentation it can be difficult to assign the results to the respective parts.

Serial numbers, forge codes or RFID transponders aid the identification process.

Identification via RFID transponder

All RUD lifting points labelled with RFID are equipped with corresponding RFID transponders, which enable simple and exact identification of individual parts.

Using the THA 90 RFID reader, the unique codes of the RFID chip can be read easily without additional software.

The information is read directly as text in all common spreadsheet and word processing programmes, browsers or other text fields.

Identification via forge codes and marking plugs.

If a cheaper alternative to RFID transponders is sought, our M lifting points are a good choice.

Here, the identification is made with the help of forging codes and batch numbers.

This method is comparatively time-consuming and requires painstaking manual documentation.

Quickly distinguish visually between checked and unchecked lifting points

The coloured identification plugs make it easy and fast to distinguish between checked and unchecked lifting points and to quickly see which lifting points are ready for use. It also makes it easy to assign them to a specific operating range. Using a new colour for each year is recommended to appropriately mark the checks.

The plugs are simply pressed in to the existing hole at the lifting point and clearly show the status of the respective product. They can be easily removed and thus reused.

Lifting magnets: Identification via batch numbers

Our THL 100 permanent lifting magnets, for example, are labelled with a numerical code that functions as a serial number.

This number can easily be used as clear identification for the periodic inspection.
