The main purpose of inspection tags is to give the user a visual indication that the equipment has been inspected during the current inspection period. It is standard practice to change the colour of the tags with each inspection period.
A wrong colour tag or no tag at all is an immediate indication that that item should be removed from service until the item can be inspected and verified.
Ranger provides convenient and durable laminated inspection boards indicating the current tag colour for different lifting equipment types. These posters can be placed at prominent locations around the site.
If you are in doubt whether an item has been inspected you should always refer to your lifting equipment register or login to our online e-Testinspect system.

WHY ARE INSPECTIONS AND TESTING IMPORTANT?
At Ranger, when we say we’re a family business, we don’t just mean we’re family owned and people with the same surname come to work here. We’re proud that’s the case, but what we really mean by it is that family comes before business. Not just our family or the extended Ranger community, but every one of our existing and prospective customers and their partners, husbands, wives, children and relatives. That’s why we take safety so seriously.
When Ranger’s testing and inspection team visit a job site, our priority is making sure the cranes, lifting equipment and rigging gear there is in good enough condition that everyone using it and working in the area can go safely home to their families that night. We don’t remove slings from service for the sake of it or to sell the contractor a new one; we do it so it doesn’t break under load and crush a young construction worker expecting his first child. We don’t conduct safety talks to waste our breath or delay the next critical lift; we do it so everyone arrives back on the job the following morning with life and limb intact.
