CIS Expands Overhead Crane Safety and Inspection Services

Crane Industry Services, LLC, announces the addition of Shawn Galloway, an overhead crane inspector and technician with extensive experience in military and industrial applications. “Shawn will focus on safety evaluations of people and equipment in heavy industry, utility, and manufacturing environments,” said Debbie Dickinson, CEO.

Galloway spent nearly 16 years serving in the U.S. Army, and later working for the Department of Defense where he was responsible for developing safety, maintenance, and readiness programs. As general manager for JIT Chemical Corp., he developed and enforced safety procedures, and made sure all electric motors, controls, and mechanical pump equipment was maintained according to company procedures for operation in a highly corrosive environment. More recently, he worked as overhead and portal crane service technician and inspector for Konecranes.

“Among the most common equipment deficiencies found on overhead cranes and hoists are structural and wire rope problems, often caused by lack of preventative maintenance or improper operation due to lack of training,” said Galloway.
