It is the responsibility of the Appointed Person to ensure that the Crane Supervisor is adequately briefed on the contents of this Method Statement. 1.5 THE CRANE SUPERVISOR Prior to the commencement of the works, the Crane Supervisor must ensure that all site personnel are adequately briefed on the contents of this Method Statement. This briefing shall take the form of a short ‘Toolbox Talk’. The Crane Supervisor must liaise with the Appointed Person should site circumstances require material change to the methods to be employed during the operation. 1.6 THE CRANE OPERATOR or OPERATORS All lifting operators or any operators working on behalf of the lifting company shall be fully trained and competent on the machines they operate and will have undergone full manufactures induction and training. 1.7 PERSONNEL All lifting personnel or any personnel working on behalf of the lifting company will be fully trained and hold the relevant certification for the role they undertake on the day of operation. Any non lift company personnel or personnel supplied by the client that will be involved in the lifting operation and taking on a specified role will be required to produce the relevant certification to the Appointed Person or Crane Supervisor prior to the commencement of the operation. Failure to produce the required certification will result in the suspension and possible cancellation of the lifting operation. 1.8 PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT All lifting personnel will be supplied with standard PPE which consists of, Hard Hat, Safety Boots, Overalls, Gloves, Hi-Vis (and Safety Goggles if required). The Site Manager must inform all Personnel of any specific requirements in advance of the operation date. 1.9 CERTIFICATION Copies of statutory test certification and inspection reports will be available for inspection prior to the lifting operation taking place.
  • 3. 2 GENERAL CONDITIONS 2.1 The Site Manager will provide details of all items to be lifted, including weights, dimensions and any specific lifting tackle requirements. The Site Manager is responsible for the structural integrity of all loads to be lifted including any specified lifting points or slinging recommendations. 2.2 The Site Manager must ensure safe access to and egress from site for all lifting personnel and vehicles, and also ensure that the working area is clear of all obstructions to allow the safe assembly and working of the crane. The Site Manager will be responsible for supplying suitable floodlighting where necessary or when required. The Site Manager must carry out any enabling works required prior to crane arrival. 2.3 The Site Manager must ensure that the area where the crane is to stand/operate is firm and level and this it is capable of withstanding the expected loadings that will be imposed upon it. 2.4 The Site Manager must ensure that any Traffic Management (not supplied by the lift company) is in place prior to the positioning of the crane. 2.5 Any personnel not directly concerned with the lift must be kept out of the crane assembly and working area. The working area should be cordoned off with barrier tape, temporary fencing or otherwise secured, to prevent non lift associated personnel or the general public from entering the lifting area. 2.6 The Crane Supervisor shall make himself known to all relevant personnel on site, and conduct a ‘Toolbox Talk’ prior to commencing operations. The Site Manager should arrange for a site specific induction for the lifting personnel prior to the commencement of work. The Site Managers Site Risk Assessment, which identified any site hazards should be made available and brought to the attention of the lifting personnel. 2.7 All cranes to be left unattended for a period, shall be left in safe condition (jib retracted or laid down if possible), with not load on the crane hook. Cranes shall be shut down and isolated as per manufacturer’s instructions, secured and locked. Under no circumstances shall the crane be moved for lifting purposes if not under the instruction of the Crane Supervisor. 2.8 In the event that specified cranes or lifting tackle, cannot be supplied on the day of operation due to operational issues, breakdown or any unforeseen circumstances. The lift company has the discretion to supply cranes or equipment that is of a suitable alternative to that detailed in this Method Statement, (at no extra cost to the client). In the event of this situation arising, the Appointed Person and the Site Manager will be notified. The AP/Crane Supervisor will ensure that any changes do not infringe on the factors or safety within this method statement. 3 WEATHER CONDITIONS 3.1 In the event of extreme weather conditions the lift company may need to suspend the lifting operation until such time as it is safe to proceed. Although the safe workable wind speed varies from crane to crane, as a guide, the maximum wind speed at which lifting operations can take place is 10 metres per second, (22mph). In the event that man riding duties are required the maximum workable wind speed reduces to 7 metres per second, (16mph). Please note that local conditions and the safety of personnel may dictate the Crane Supervisor and Crane Operator have to suspend lifting operations at a lower wind speed than specified in this Method Statement. In addition, lifting operations must stop during storms or when there is a risk of lightning strikes. 4 GROUND CONDITIONS 4.1 The lift company will endeavour to advise the client regarding ground conditions, after a visual inspection (or where necessary/provided, perusal of a client ground survey report) and supply suitable plates, mats where required. The Client is required to advise the lifting company of any known underground services, voids or vaults as state in BS7121. Safe Use of Cranes.

CRANE & LIFT INFORMATION (Continued) 9 CRANE SET UP PROCEDURE THE CRANE TEAM Crane Supervisor: CITB CTA Card Expiry Date: Appointed Person: Slinger/Signaller(s): CITB CTA Card Expiry Date: Crane Driver: 9.1 The crane, together with the associated operating crew will arrive on site at the specified and agreed date and time. 9.2 Crane Supervisor will meet the Site Manager and carry out “Toolbox Talk” with all personnel involved in the lifting operation. Once this has been completed, all involved in the lifting operation must sign the register for this Method Statement. Any site inductions that are required will also be carried out. 9.3 Any traffic management, ancillary pans, mats or temporary roadways etc that are required to be positioned by hi-ab or other means, prior to the crane or cranes manoeuvring into position, will be done under the instruction of the Crane Supervisor. 9.4 The crane will then manoeuvre into position as shown on attached drawing. All manoeuvring to be carried out under the guidance of a member of the lifting crew. 9.5 The crane will then commence set-up procedure and rig to the configuration stated in section 8.1. All personnel assisting with rigging will be under the guidance of the crane operator, at all times. The set- up procedure will be carried out as per crane manufactures manual. 9.6 Upon completion of the rigging procedure, the crane operator will carry out procedural safety and computer checks, implementing any specific operational requirements, i.e. slewing restrictions, short rig configurations or fly jib configurations. 9.7 The Crane Supervisor will then carry out a radio communications check between the crane operator and the lifting crew. 9.8 Hook block of crane will then be lowered and required lifting tackle placed on the hook, Lift Supervisor will ensure that the correct lifting tackle has been selected. 9.9 The crane operator will then be instructed to hoist lifting tackle clear of any obstructions and position the crane ready for the first required lift. Any delivery/removal vehicles will now be positioned adjacent to the crane as per attached drawings, ready for work to commence. 10 LIFTING PROCEDURE 10.1 Slinger/Signallers will issue instructions via hand signals or two-way radios to the crane operator to position the crane over first required lift, Slinger/Signallers will plumb the boom head, directly over the load or set short to allow for jib deflection where necessary.
  • 12. 10.2 The Slinger/Signallers will instruct crane operator, the lower the hooks with lifting tackle to allow Slinger/Signaller to attach lifting tackle to load. LIFTING PROCEDURE (Continued) 10.3 All slinging will be carried out by fully trained, certificated and experienced slingers. Slinging methods adopted will be as specified by load manufacturers, using specified lifting points or, in the event that no manufacturer instruction or lifting points are provided, our Slingers will work to the Appointed Persons recommendations and to Health & Safety executives guidelines for safe slinging for lifting loads, (see section 7.2 & 7.3). The lifting tackle used, will be as stated in section 7.3 and will have current test certification available. 10.4 Upon completion of the attachment of the lifting tackle to the load, the Slinger/Signaller will instruct the operator by hand signals or radios, to hoist up to take the slack out of the lifting tackle. Once the lifting tackle has started to take the weight and has tightened the Slinger/Signaller will instruct operator or operators to stop hoisting. The Slinger/Signaller will then carry out a check around the load to ensure that the lifting tackle is sitting correctly, angled correctly and also check any lifting points for security and correct operation. 10.5 Once lifting tackle check has been carried out the Slinger/Signaller will instruct the crane operator or operators, to hoist the load to a height that allows the lifting tackle to take the full weight of the load and again instruct the operator to stop hoisting when the load is just airborne to allow a final check of the lifting tackle and lifting points and also check the structural integrity of the load. 10.6 Once the Slinger/Signaller is confident that the lifting tackle and the load are secure, any tag lines that may be required will be attached to the load. Instructions will then be given to the crane operator or operators to hoist the load clear of any obstructions, ensuring that any site specific risks are monitored throughout the hoisting procedure. 10.7 Once the load is clear of all obstructions, the Slinger/signaller will give instructions to the crane operator to manoeuvre the load as required for railing, or manoeuvre to the required landing area for single crane lifts. 10.8 In the event that the landing area is at a different level or should access not permit, the Slinger/Signaller will pass control of the crane signalling to a second strategically placed Slinger/Signaller at the landing area. 10.9 The landing area Slinger/Signaller will then commence giving instructions to the crane operator or operators to manoeuvre and lower the load to the required landing point, ensuring that any site specific risks are monitored throughout the landing procedure. 10.10 The Slinger/Signaller will guide the load to the correct orientation as the load becomes contactable by hand or by attached tag lines. 10.11 The Slinger/Signaller will instruct the crane operator to lower the load to just above the landing position and then instruct the operator to stop lowering to allow the Site Manager to confirm position and orientation of load prior to landing. 10.12 Once the position is confirmed by the Site Manager, the Slinger/Signaller will instruct the operator to slowly lower load into position. Once landed, a final position check will be made before the Slinger/Signaller instructs the operator to lower off all load weight. 10.13 Slinger/Signaller will instruct the operator to lower off, to allow lifting tackle to be released from the load. In the event that any load is too large or high for safe access by ladder, powered access equipment or a lifted man basket will be used to remove slings from loads. 10.14 Once lifting tackle is detached from the load, the Slinger/Signaller will instruct the operator to slowly hoist the lifting tackle clear of the load and any site specific risks ensuring that no snagging occurs.
  • 13. 10.15 Once the lifting tackle is clear of all obstructions the Slinger/signaller will instruct the crane operator to manoeuvre the crane ready for any further lifts that may be required and had over to another Slinger/Signaller were required. 10.16 All other required lifts will be carried out as stated in sections 11.1 to 11.5. The Lift Supervisor will ensure that all lifting and operational procedures are followed as per the Appointed Persons recommendations and that any queries or deviation from this Method Statement are notified immediately to the Site Manager and the Appointed Person. 11 DE-RIG PROCEDURE 11.1 Upon completion of the lifting operation, the Crane Supervisor will instruct the crane operator to load any ancillary equipment or heavy lifting tackle onto relevant transport ready for removal from site. 11.2 The Crane Supervisor will then instruct the crane operator to lower all lifting tackle to the ground to allow removal from hook. 11.3 The crane operator will then instigate the removal of any lifting tackle stored on the crane and then commence the de-rig procedure. 11.4 All personnel assisting with de-rigging will be under the guidance of the crane operator at all times. The de-rig procedure will be carried out as per crane manufacturers manual. 11.5 Once the crane has been de-rigged and all safety checks for road travel have been carried out the crane operator will manoeuvre the crane/s off site, under the guidance of a member of the lifting crew. The crane will then proceed on its way. 11.6 The remaining members of the lifting crew will ensure that any ancillary mats or equipment etc are removed from site or placed in an appropriate position ready for collection prior to them leaving site. 11.7 Any traffic or pedestrian management arranged by the lift company will be unimplemented and removed. 11.8 The Crane Supervisor will inform the Site Manager or site representative of the completion of the operation and address any issues that may be raised and inform of any equipment left on site for later collection. 12 ON SITE CHANGES/ADDITIONAL LIFTS 12.1 Any changes to this Method Statement & Lifting Plan must be notified to and approved by the Appointed Person. Any crane position changes or amendments to drawings must also be notified and approved by the Appointed Person. Amendment Details
