You Need It, We Can Help You Get It Back.
Engineer approved repairs and recertifications to your equipment
Did You Know?
Any repair or unauthorized modification made to the OEM Roll-Over Protection Structure voids the ROPS certification. Even something as simple as drilling holes to hang a radio or fire extinguisher! Unless specifically approved by the manufacturer or a registered professional engineer familiar with ROPS and FOPS, any alterations you’ve made means you likely need a new ROPS certification.
Inspections, Repairs, and Recertifications
You can’t afford to have your expensive equipment out of service due to structural damage. And now you don’t have to. We’re here to walk you through the ROPS recertification process. As an expert manufacturer of protective work safety structures, we know what it takes to keep your heavy equipment up, running, and OSHA compliant.
Structural Repair Services
For over 25 years, CRA has repaired ROPS (Roll-Over Protection Structures) for the mining, construction, farming, dredging, and other industries. They’ve come in many different shapes, sizes, and uses, sometimes an entire cab or control room and others just a metal loop on the back of a tractor. Whatever industry you’re in, whatever ROPS you need repaired, we’ve got the experience you need to get back up and running.
Repairs are made on site at your location or in our shop in Iron River, Wisconsin, whichever best meets your need, your deadline, and your budget.
Structural Repair Recertification Services
CRA provides recertification consulting services to help you get back to work. We know OSHA and MSHA regulations front to back. Let us take care of the testing, documentation, and formal recertification work – so you don’t have to! We take all the right steps to get your equipment back in compliance as soon as possible.
Our 4-Step Recertification Process:
Step 1: Pre-Check
You send us specific pictures the unit needing to be recertified. Don’t worry, we’ll make sure you know exactly which ones! Then, our engineer reviews the photos and we let you know if recertification is an option or if the whole unit will need to be replaced.
Step 2: On-Site Check & Repair
Our Recertification Specialist works with you to find the best time for him to be on-site. Then, while there, he specifies the work needed to be done, per the engineer. Lastly, he monitors your certified welder making the repairs and sends new pictures back to the engineer.
Step 3: Engineer Approval
Our engineer reviews the photos, requests more repairs, if needed, and approves the repairs.
Step 4: On-Site Recertification
After the final approval, you’ll receive a new Metal Placard of Compliance along with a safety certificate from our licensed structural engineer.
