When it comes to safety, we, at Western Equipment, know that there is nothing that is more important than the protection of one’s employees. Because we believe that a safe workplace is a productive workplace, we offer a variety of safety inspection services that can help clients implement safe practices and keep their jobs running smoothly. One of the often overlooked aspects of many jobsites is wire rope and chain safety. That is why Western Equipment provides wire rope and chain inspections services all over British Columbia.

Wire Rope and Chain Inspections from Western Equipment

At Western Equipment, we know the dangers that can come from improperly maintained equipment. When that equipment is being used to hoist or secure loads, it is especially important to make sure that it is not at risk of failing to prevent damage to property and injury to personnel. Aside from ensuring that your property and staff remain safe from broken lines, malfunctioning equipment, or dropped loads, getting an inspection for wire rope or chain can save your company money.

Having certified equipment on a jobsite can protect your company from lawsuits or any other kind of litigation, saving you money and time. Western Equipment offers two different types of inspections for chain and wire line. These types are as follows:

On-Site Wire Rope and Chain Inspections Services

When you need an inspection performed on hoisting and securing materials, Western Equipment can come to your jobsite or shop and make sure that all wire rope and chain is usable and safe. We will review notes from previous inspections and perform on-the-spot diagnostics on the equipment. In the event that the chain or line fails our on-site inspection, we will take it back to our shop to undergo further testing.

In-House Wire Rope and Chain Inspections Services

Our in-house inspections and testing services for wire rope and chain will ensure that your equipment is fit to be used without any safety concerns. The main test that we will perform is a proof load test, which ensures that the equipment can support the weight for which it was designed in a controlled environment. If the chain or wire rope passes our tests, we will recertify the equipment for use by your company.
