Rotary Lift launches inspection program

Posted on September 10, 2009

Vehicle lift manufacturer Rotary Lift introduces “Inspect to Protect,” the industry’s first nationwide heavy-duty lift inspection program.

 

The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) national standard covering vehicle lift operation, maintenance and inspection, and a growing number of state codes and regulations require that all vehicle lifts be inspected by qualified lift inspectors at least annually. A professional lift inspection will identify any issues before they can grow into major problems. Annual lift inspections conducted by qualified lift inspectors also can prevent OSHA citations and fines.

 

There is no national certification, licensing or directory of qualified lift inspectors, so transit agencies in the past have been on their own to find someone to inspect their vehicle lifts.

 

Now, agencies can call Rotary Lift at (800) 640-5438, which will connect maintenance managers with local, factory-trained lift inspection providers through the exclusive Rotary Authorized Installer (RAI) nationwide network.

 

Each participating “Inspect to Protect” company has inspectors on staff who meet all of the requirements for a “qualified lift inspector” outlined in the ANSI standard. Plus, each company is required to attend annual Rotary Lift training; maintain insurance coverage; and be able to provide customers with lift maintenance, repair and genuine Rotary replacement parts.

 

Rotary Lift equips its “Inspect to Protect” program providers with inspection checklists that detail what should be inspected on all of its lift models. At the conclusion of every inspection, customers receive an inspection certificate signed by the lift inspector that details what was found during the inspection, any adjustments made and parts replaced for each lift. 

 

The Rotary Lift Inspect to Protect program runs Sept. 1, 2009 through Dec. 31, 2009.
