Npv Cranes & Maintenance has many years experience in providing certified load and performance testing services of overhead cranes, jibs, gantries, monorails and hoists. We are capable of testing new, reinstalled, altered, repaired or modified equipment in order to ensure compliance with OSH Act.


The requirements of the OHS Act DMR18.5 states that lifting machinery must be load tested at intervals not exceeding 12 months. This consists of performing a load test to test hoisting and lowering of load, hoist brake hold, trolley and bridge operations where applicable.

Prior to performing any load test, a pre-inspection is performed to ensure the equipment is within safety standards. After the testing has been successfully completed, a load test certification document is provided. Those units which fail testing, will be required to be withdrawn from service until any noted deficiencies are corrected.

This is necessary in order to prevent failure of the equipment and the possibility of an accident. Weights are available for load testing include portable concrete and steel weights. Waterbags are also available for special applications. Load cell, slings, and shackles are also provided.
