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 an unsafe condition. Failure to remedy such condition before continued operation of the identified asset may result in personal injury, including death, or property damage. A production risk indicates an inefficient condition. Failure to remedy such condition before continued operation of the identified asset may result in inefficient asset performance or an interruption in production. Undetermined condition indicates that the condition could not be verified through visual inspection as a result of asset configuration and/or obstruction. When we note an undertermined condition, 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.
