  5. Lifting Accessories & Operations Objectives Upon completion of this training module, the student will know and understand • personnel responsibilities for the planning of the lifting operation • the lifting equipment and the safety of the site • the procedures for the inspection of lifting equipment and lifting accessories.

  6. Content Introduction Safety Responsibilities Crane Operator Responsibility Rigger Responsibility The Lift Slings and Accessories Custom Made Lifting Devices Local Application Summary

  7. Safety Responsibilities • Safety in the Crane Area • Crane Certification • Competent operator • Training, Experience and Equipment Knowledge • Crane Operator has ultimate control of the lift • In an emergency, anyone can request a Lift to be stopped

  8. Safety Responsibilities Management Responsibility: • Ensure a lifting program is developed to provide safety of the site. This will include risk assessments and lifting plans for specific lifts. • Ensure proper planning of all phases of operation for lifting equipment and materials. The roles and responsibilities of all persons must be clearly identified in the lifting plan. • Ensure all personnel are properly trained and that risk assessments and lifting plans have been validated and adequately communicated to all involved persons. • Ensure equipment is only operated by personnel who have been assessed to be competent by qualification, training and experience before site activities commence. • Ensure safe equipment is used for the lifting operation and any defected equipment is removed from service

  9. Safety Responsibilities Management Responsibility: • Site management will ensure that all contractors have been given a pre-start-up briefing to ensure that they are aware of Alstom requirements with respect to lifting operations. • All persons involved in lifting operations must be given a short practical assessment of competence by Alstom. • Training covering general lifting operations hazards and preventative measures must be formally provided to all Alstom and contractors personnel on site and this must be repeated as a minimum annually. • A competent operational supervisor must supervise each lift. • Alstom’s lifting operation requirements must be formally provided to each contractor working on site.

  10. Safety Responsibilities Management Responsibility: • Daily coordination meetings must ensure that operating perimeters and times of use for mobile lifting equipment are clearly defined and applied on site. • The site will set up a documented weekly inspection program that is led by Alstom site management involving contractors and covers all lifting operations. • The lead Alstom person on site must include in the weekly operational meeting a detailed review of statistics, actions and management of change relating to compliance with lifting operations requirements. • All contractors must be subject to formal regular management inspection covering lifting operations, where significant or repetitive issues are raised contractual actions must be taken with the contractor. • Persons who fail to work to Alstom requirements will be subject to a disciplinary process.

  11. Responsibility Affected Employee Responsibility: • Never put any part of their body under a suspended load • Never ride a load while it is being lifted • Be aware of suspended loads, signals of the operators and any lifting equipment supports

  12. Content Introduction Safety Responsibilities Crane Operator Responsibility Rigger Responsibility The Lift Slings and Accessories Custom Made Lifting Devices Local Application Summary

  13. Crane Operator: • The operator shall not engage in any practice which shall divert his attention while actually engaged in operating the crane. • The operator shall respond to signals from the person who is directing the lift. However, the operator shall obey a stop signal at all times, no matter who gives it. • A clear channel of communication will be agreed before the lift commences. This could include the international standard hand signals or radios etc.

  14. Crane Operator: • The operator shall be familiar with the equipment and its proper care. If adjustments or repairs are necessary, the operator shall promptly report this to the appointed person, and shall also notify the next operator. • All controls shall be tested by the operator prior to a new lift. If any controls fail to operate properly, they shall be adjusted or repaired before operations are begun. • The manufacturer's balancing bar and lifting procedures must be followed. Any deviation from the manufacturer's procedure must be approved by the manufacturer. • The operator must be aware of all electrical equipment and power lines in the vicinity of the lifting operation. • Crane limits and calculated stresses on the accessories must never be exceeded.

  15. Content Introduction Safety Responsibilities Crane Operator Responsibility Rigger Responsibility The Lift Slings and Accessories Custom Made Lifting Devices Local Application Summary

  16. Rigger Responsibility Rigger competence: Qualified by • Training • Experience • Equipment knowledge The Rigger must be capable of giving clear lifting instructions to the crane operator responsible for the lift.

  17. Content Introduction Safety Responsibilities Crane Operator Responsibility Rigger Responsibility The Lift Slings and Accessories Custom Made Lifting Devices Local Application Summary

  18. NEW The Lift (considerations) • Crane capacity based upon the angle of the boom • Weight of the piece to be lifted • Use the manufactures lifting diagrams where available • The weight of the lifting accessories • Inspection and certification of all the accessories-slings, beam, shackles, etc. • Sling capacities due to angle of slings • Center of gravity • Never leave a load suspended when the hoist or crane is unattended. • Measures to prevent persons not participating the lifting operation from accessing the area

  19. NEW The Lift (Permit to Work) • A permit to work must be issued for non-standard lifts as follows: ·Non routine operation carried out with mobile lifting equipment ·Operation carried out with temporary lifting equipment ·Operation requiring load tilting ·Operation needing to use several lifting equipments at the same time ·Operation were operator can not see the load ·Operation needing assistants to guide the load during the load setting ·Lift of load without any defined hooking points. ·Lift of people ·Use of equipment not specifically designed for lifting (backhoe excavator) ·Lifting near existing buildings or hazardous installations, (flammable liquids storage, high-voltage line etc.) Operation of lifting equipment >75% of weight capacity for the lifting equipment or crane

  20. Content Introduction Safety Responsibilities Crane Operator Responsibility Rigger Responsibility The Lift Slings and Accessories Custom Made Lifting Devices Local Application Summary

  21. NEW Slings and Accessories Slings and lifting attachments: Safe use, Storage • Safe working load of a sling depends on its configuration • Choice depends on nature of a load, environment, handling, durability, stretch • Store properly - synthetic degrades in the sun • Wire rope affected by moisture

  22. NEW slide Slings and Accessories Slings and lifting attachments: Inspection and testing • Inspection before first use • Legal requirements vary depending on region and type of equipment • Lifting accessories have to be inspected at least every 6 months by a competent engineer whose competence has been verified by Alstom. • A register is kept of lifting equipment to validate inspections • All lifting equipment must be properly labeled with lifting capacity, a unique identifier and date of next examination • Table of safe working load at different angles posted • Visually inspect rigging before each use. • Defective equipment must be taken out of service immediately

  23. NEW Slings and Accessories Hooks Remove hooks from service if: • Deformed, twisted 10+degree opening 15%+ or have damaged latch Opening Twist

  24. NEW Slings and Accessories Wire Rope • Discard if 5+ wires are broken in a strand in a lay length • Discard if 10+ wires are broken anywhere in a lay length • Discard when wire is birdcaged or kinked • Excessive corrosion

  25. NEW Slide Slings and Accessories Chains • Broken/damaged links • Deformed/stretched links • Excessive corrosion • Cracks • Cuts/tears • Heat damage • Chemical damage • Stretched/worn stitching; knots Textileslings
