A visual inspection should be made for the following and any abnormal conditions should be reported to a qualified person for further inspection and possible repair:

  1. The condition of the lifting eye, check for damage and tightness of the securing screws.
  2. The Lifting Magnet control handle ON/OFF condition. Check that it is fixed tightly into the rotor shaft and that it isn't loose.
  3. Condition of the labels regarding safety warnings and capacity ratings.

Periodic Inspection of the Lifting Magnet should be made on an annual basis by a qualified person and date recorded in a logbook. A complete examination should be carried out and any deficiencies such as those listed above shall be examined.
