The Crane Code of Practice introduced by the Queensland Division of Workplace Health and Safety in 2006, stipulates that the owners of cranes are required to carry out a major inspection every 10 years. All mechanical components from hydraulics, pumps, motors, booms, rams, sheaves, braking and steering need to be fully inspected, tested, and where required, repaired and reassembled in compliance with the crane manufacturer’s instructions and tolerances.
Crane owners from as far away as the Atherton Tablelands, Mt Isa and Gladstone and from industries as diverse as Sugar, Mining, Marine and Defence have entrusted their major inspections - and subsequent overhauls - to Gary Zollner and his crew of tradesmen.
The rigorous guidelines and highly technical nature of the inspections has limited the number of businesses able to offer the service. In a niche market, word of mouth recommendations are essential. Woodfield Engineering has earned an excellent reputation for delivering a quality service that has seen clients coming back and recommending to their colleagues.
Not only is the work demanding on the skills of the tradesmen, it also requires the highest standard of work management, supported by systematic procedures and efficient supervision, which is why Gary personally supervises each job. No shortcuts taken here - safety is paramount with this type of work.
