Risk and recommendation Method

The Approach used in Our Crane Service Programmes

Utilising a global network of skilled local technicians and a proprietary Risk and Recommendation Method, we take a unique consultative approach to crane maintenance.

Under the Risk and Recommendation Method, each component is inspected in order to ascertain its condition. Failures, deficiencies and violations are documented and assigned one of three risk types: safety, production or undetermined. In addition, a variety of improvement opportunities can be identified. Recommended actions are determined and discussed with you.

The most critical risk type, a safety risk, indicates the risk of injury or danger. If a safety risk is identified, the equipment is unsafe to use until it is repaired or otherwise returned to an acceptable condition. A production risk indicates a risk of disruption to or loss of production due to the potential failure of a component. An undetermined risk indicates that the condition could not be verified through visual inspection under the scope of the services provided as a result of asset configuration and obstruction. In the event of an undetermined risk, we would normally recommend a deeper look at the component using a Consultation Services product.

No matter which service is being performed, Konecranes’ Risk and Recommendation Method drives our inspection and consultative approach and provides you with documented safety and production action items.
