A crane maintainer is a specialist who maintains and repairs cranes and ensures their safe operation. Their job is to inspect and maintain cranes on a regular basis to ensure that they are running smoothly and to minimise the risk of failure. 

The crane maintainer performs a range of activities to maintain and repair cranes, including:

  • Carry out maintenance work such as lubrication, adjustment, cleaning and replacement of components. 
  • Repair and replacement of damaged parts of cranes. 
  • Replacement of cables, bearings, counterweights, cables and other mechanical components. 
  • Changing hydraulic oils and fluids. 
  • Implementing new technologies and improvements in cranes.
