BEST PRACTICE OPERATION OF HEAVY EQUIPMENT

BEST PRACTICE TRAINING METHODS TO ACHIEVE SAFE OPERATION


Best practice operation of heavy equipment

ROCK TRUCK OPERATION SUCH AS THIS LENDS ITSELF WELL TO COMPUTER BASED TRAINING

THE COMPLEXITY AND ENGINEERING REQUIRED FOR MAJOR LIFTS SUCH AS THIS 425 METRIC TON FRACTIONATOR DICTATE MORE INTENSIVE TRAINING


Computer based training

COMPUTER BASED TRAINING

  • MOST HEAVY EQUIMENT MANUFACTURERS AND USERS PROVIDE SOME COMPUTER BASED TRAINING TO SUPPLEMENT “HANDS ON” PRACTICAL TRAINING.

  • BETTER SUITED TO EQUIPMENT OPERATION THAT IS REPETETIVE

  • NOT WELL SUITED TO MORE COMPLEX FORMS OF OPERATION SUCH AS MOBILE CRANES

  • LARGE NUMBERS OF PEOPLE MAY BE TRAINED AT LOWER COST PER STUDENT

  • MANY INDUSTRY USERS QUESTION QUALITY OF TRAINING


Physical assessment based training

PHYSICAL ASSESSMENT BASED TRAINING

  • Very successful training for operation of shovels, rock trucks bulldozers and loaders has been achieved by first assessing the eye hand coordination and physical problem solving ability of candidates with little or no formal schooling by using a set of video and computer game based tests

  • High rate of success where traditional training methods fail

  • Pioneered by Canada’s Northwest Territory Mining industry to allow more effective utilization of the aboriginal population


Traditional training seminars

TRADITIONAL TRAINING SEMINARS

  • WHILE THIS TYPE OF TRAINING IS NOT AS COST EFFECTIVE, IT HAS PROVEN TO BE THE ONLY REALLY EFFECTIVE MEANS OF COMMUNICATING MORE COMPLEX IDEAS THAT REQUIRE INTERACTION AND DISCUSSION BETWEEN THE STUDENTS AND THE TRAINER

  • “BEST PRACTICE” TRAINING FOR ENGINEERS, SUPERVISORS, MANAGERS, LIFT COORDINATORS AND SENIOR OPERATORS ENGAGED IN HOISTING OPERATIONS IS BEST ACCOMPLISHED IN INTERACTIVE CLASSROOM SETTINGS

  • EFFECTIVE IN TRAINING KEY INDIVIDUALS IN THE DEVELOPMENT, PRODUCTION AND IMPLEMENTATION OF CRITICAL AND SERIOUS CLASSIFICATION HOISTING OPERATIONS

  • TRAINING FOR THE ABILITY TO PRODUCE “LIFT STUDIES”


What is a lift study

WHAT IS A LIFT STUDY?

  • Is it a piece of paper?

  • Is it formal and unchangeable?

  • What should it contain ?

    • Numbers?

    • People?

    • Load info.?

    • Engineering concerns?


What are the areas that require study

WHAT ARE THE AREAS THAT REQUIRE STUDY


Examine the reponsibilities and liabilities of all involved in the lift

EXAMINE THE REPONSIBILITIES AND LIABILITIES OF ALL INVOLVED IN THE LIFT


Check all applicable codes and standards

CHECK ALL APPLICABLE CODES AND STANDARDS

ASME B30.5- 1994

Mobile and Locomotive Cranes

Or

CSA-Z150-98


Determine the rigging required

DETERMINE THE RIGGING REQUIRED


Determine and verify the weight of the load

DETERMINE AND VERIFY THE WEIGHT OF THE LOAD

  • L x W x H x Density = Weight


Ensure the center of gravity has been considered

ENSURE THE CENTER OF GRAVITY HAS BEEN CONSIDERED


Confirm load distribution between cranes

CONFIRM LOAD DISTRIBUTION BETWEEN CRANES


Properly and accurately read crane load charts

PROPERLY AND ACCURATELY READ CRANE LOAD CHARTS


This may include all terrain crane load charts

THIS MAY INCLUDE ALL TERRAIN CRANE LOAD CHARTS


Or conventional crane load charts

OR CONVENTIONAL CRANE LOAD CHARTS


Examine all factors such as unstable ground that may affect crane stability

EXAMINE ALL FACTORS SUCH AS UNSTABLE GROUND THAT MAY AFFECT CRANE STABILITY


Create the lift study drawing

CREATE THE LIFT STUDY DRAWING

  • May be hand drawn but most of today's drawings are developed by highly trained computer operators using programs such as AUTO CAD

  • An experienced crane specialist should design the lift and develop the plan

  • Depending on the degree of risk presented by the lift and local regulations the services of an engineer may be required
