For safe and efficient lifting operations there are 3 critical elements to be considered, and we can support clients in the development of a robust safe system of work in this respect:
- Organizations need to have policies and procedures to ensure that their lifting operations are properly managed and planned. This involves internal policies and procedures to set out the company’s general and specific approach to lifting operations whether they use their own cranes or hire cranes from a contract. Additionally, an often overlooked is the need for a competent person to develop Lift Plans which may be generic or lift-specific depending on the nature of the lifting operation.
- This critical function requires special attention to ensure that competent personnel is implementing company standards and plans through the hands-on overseeing of all the elements which combine to form a lifting operation.
- All members of the lifting team must be competent to perform their roles. This means that they have been appropriately trained and assessed as Crane Operators, Slinger Banksman or Load Handlers.
Our training is developed and delivered in accordance with UK Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations (LOLER) and the relevant Parts of British Standard BS7121. We also use the relevant parts of international standard BS EN 15513:2000
