Safe Working Period

The end of the Safe Working Period (SWP) must be calculated in accordance with the ISO 12482-1 standard during each recurring inspection and service. If the component does not have a condition-monitoring unit, use the following method to calculate the remaining SWP%.

Note: If a condition-monitoring unit is fitted, it performs the SWP calculation and displays the remaining SWP% automatically.

Note: For some products, the condition-monitoring unit can be retrofitted as a modernization to enhance safety (not available for chain hoists). Contact your supplier for more details.

Note: The values used in each SWP calculation, as well as the result and date, must be carefully recorded in the logbook. Each SWP calculation requires the use of figures recorded during previous calculations.
