This document outlines how hoist owners and hire companies in the construction industry can inspect and maintain hoists. It’s based on WorkSafe Victoria recommendations that:

  • construction site workers make sure hoists are installed using manufacturer recommendations
  • hoists are checked daily
  • hoist hirers and suppliers complete maintenance work on hoists for every 40 hours of use, and major inspections after 10 years of service
  • hoist hirers and suppliers keep a record of hoist inspections and maintenance
