SOS Total Safety Solution - What is it?

In our last blog, we talked about SOS Total Safety Solution and that we had developed our own program to ensure safe equipment operation and reduce critical downtime.

Now, what is it?

SOS Total Safety Solution is a comprehensive program, which combines thorough inspections with operator training to ensure safety both behind the controls and in front...


Legislations and Standards - Compliance:


  • Occupational Health and Safety Act R.R.O. 1990, Section, 51 (1)

  • CAN/CSA - B167-96 Safety Standard for Maintenance and Inspections of Overhead Cranes, Gantry Cranes, Monorails, Hoists and Trolleys

  • CMAA No. 78-2002 - Standards and Guidelines for Professional Services Performed on Overhead and Travelling Cranes and Associated Hoisting


Proper preventative maintenance increases the reliability of the equipment's performance. The SOS Total Safety Solution using our defect history database, combined with inspections and repairs, carried out by our crane specialists, will help to reduce the number of safety related faults while increasing the reliability of the equipment.

By specifying qualification requirements and training the operators, safety is enormously improved (crane operator errors lie at the root of 90% of all crane accidents).


Studies show that with the implementation of a through program such as the SOS Total Safety Solution , equipment maintenance costs were reduced by 28-56%, equipment failures were reduced by 50-83% and safety incidents have been reduced by 65-95%.


On our next post we will cover inspections, so stay tuned!
