Rigging Inspection Services

As we are starting 2018, don’t forget to inspect all Rigging and Lifting Equipment to make sure that it is ready for another year of service. You can perform these periodic rigging inspections at any time of the year, but it is important to understand that users are required by ASME standards to perform a periodic inspection of all of your slings and hardware at least once a year.  

Bishop Lifting’s Services Department is available to come to your location and perform rigging inspection services. If you are interested in having Bishop’s Services department perform a periodic inspection on your rigging equipment contact them at 713-674-2266 or services@lifting.com.  Our team can help you develop an inspection schedule that best suits your company's needs.  Sometimes due to severity of use, periodic inspections can be required to be performed monthly, quarterly or annually. 

You are not required to use a third party for your periodic rigging inspections, and can use any of your employees that consider to be qualified based on experience and training. If you do not feel that you have any employees that are qualified, Bishop Lifting also offers training on rigging gear inspection. We offer many training options from 1 hour presentations all the way up to 2 day Rigging Inspector courses. The length of the training and the scheduling can be customized to meet your needs and your schedule. For more information contact our training department at 713-674-2266 or training@lifting.com.
