Summary of requirements and recommendations
The key objectives of a maintenance plan are:
- Safety – compliance with Western Australian Work safe regulations (this should always be the prime concern of every crane owner/operator)
- Maximum availability of all equipment as well as maximising the working life of the equipment
- Minimised total lifetime cost of ownership as well as equipment down-time.
- Full Compliance with Australian Standards
Iceage recommends that all cranes and hoists are maintained in compliance with Western Australian Occupational Safety & Health Regulations and in accordance with Australian Standards AS 2550 and AS 1418.
If this is met, and the crane is operated with understanding of downtime implications at all times, the objectives defined above could very well all be achieved. Operator misuse or abuse of cranes and hoists are quite often the foremost cause of excessive wear and tear of critical components on the equipment, this not only puts the operator’s own safety but also that of their fellow workers. These actions cannot always be avoided and usually lead to breakdowns and unnecessary maintenance costs.
