About Us

In Canada, as per CSA Z150-98 Safety Code on Mobile Cranes, all mobile cranes are to be certified annually. This includes mechanical inspection, load and stability testing, as well as structurally examined using mag-particle inspection (MPI). In years past many crane owners have had their cranes MPI inspected and assumed it was certified, however this testing is only one part to certifying a crane as fit for service. Lately, as a safety and liability precaution, many governing bodies as well as petroleum companies are enforcing the requirement that cranes be fully certified, both structurally and mechanically.

Global Crane Inspections Inc. has developed a mechanical inspection and load and stability program based on CSA national standards, and it been implemented in certified inspection facilities throughout Canada. Trained technicians perform an exhaustive inspection of crane mechanical and hydraulic components to ensure they meet or exceed CSA and OEM standards. Results are then forwarded to a professional engineer for review and final certification of the mobile crane.

As a franchise, Global Crane Inspections administers a program including standardized inspection checklists, facility certification, technician training and engineering services. Global also maintains databases of all crane inspections. Those seeking further program or franchise information please contact Program Administrator Alain Fontaine at 403-993-6189 or by email
