In these cases they may use both percentage and tonnage, for example 10 50te, 50te 100te, 100te and above or up to and inclusive of 50% above 50% or above 75% crane capacity

APPOINTED PERSON COURSE

CATEGORY OF LIFTS COMPLEX LIFT

If the lifting operations requires more than one crane is to be used to

lift a single, then in addition those duties already listed, the Appointed

Person should ensure:

The weight must be known exactly

The proportion of weight taken by each crane throughout the lifting operation

Cranes selected are compatible in lifting characteristics and there is a

sufficient margin within the rated capacity of each crane, to take care of

any additional dynamic loading (shock loading) that may be transferred

during the lifting procedure

APPOINTED PERSON COURSE

CATEGORY OF LIFTS COMPLEX LIFT

There must be no contact between the crane jibs when planning the

operation and actually lifting the load

A written method statement is drawn up outlining the steps to be followed to ensure compliance with the safe system of work

The method statement is given, understood and followed by those

involved. This is in addition to the briefing (tool box talks)

When all the factors cannot be accurately evaluated the cranes should be down rated by 25% or more. In some publication it will

indicate that each crane must be able to lift 75% of the load.

APPOINTED PERSON COURSE

CATEGORY OF LIFTS COMPLEX LIFT

Where the lifting operation requires more than two cranes or cranes using load enhancement attachments (superlift), or the lift is to take

place at a location with exceptional hazards e.g

refinery, nuclear installations. Then the Appointed Person in addition to the duties already listed should ensure:

chemical plant, oil

The planning is given greater attention than that for more straight forward lifting operations

The assessment of the loading on each crane throughout the full operation is known within + or - 2%

APPOINTED PERSON COURSE

CATEGORY OF LIFTS COMPLEX LIFT

The suitability of the ground supporting the cranes and the load(s) is

thoroughly investigated and that the investigation takes into account of

the effect of the cranes standing in close proximity to each other

During the load lifting phase of the operation, it is monitored and that this information is displayed suitably and clearly to the supervisor

directing the crane operators

NOTE: it may be appropriate to monitor the inclination of the load during

the lifting cycle

LIFTING OPERATIONS REGULATION’S

APPOINTED PERSON COURSE LIFTING OPERATIONS REGULATION’S • In some countries lifting of people is classed as

In some countries lifting of people is classed as a complex lift

A general rule is that the lifting gear used is at least twice the strength of that required for general lift.

Crane are operated gently and should not move in excess of 0.5m/s

Maximum wind speed 7m/s

APPOINTED PERSON COURSE

DEMOLITION OPERATIONS

The safe system of work should include steps to ensure all loads are free

from adhesion, steel wedges, jacking equipment may be needed to break

the suction.

There will be a final inspection of the load by the Crane Supervisor

before the lift commences.

Lifting loads in mid-air should be avoided if possible. It is necessary to handle a load by attaching the crane then cutting free, the Appointed

Person should ensure that a 100% uplift has been added to the estimated

weight when selecting the craneage.
