Hoist Safety Certification Program

The Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) requires all businesses that use hoists to be safety certified on an annual basis. We offer annual certification programs to suit your company’s needs. We stock most parts including hooks, latches, friction disks, chain, etc. We are also a warranty repair center for Jet & Magna and are CM certified.

NW Industrial Tool, Inc. provides customers with periodic inspections, ranging from three months to an annual basis. With that comes full paperwork for your records and a tag on the hoist corresponding with the paperwork provided, letting those who are working with the hoist know that they are in compliance with regulations.

All our preventive maintenance programs are based on the hoist manufacturer’s recommended service checklist, including any deteriorated components or unsafe conditions. If issues with your hoist are detected during the maintenance inspection, we will provide an estimate of parts and repair cost before any services are executed. All of the required parts replacement or service must be completed before a hoist is allowed to be recertified.
