Lift plan preparation for crane operator

Recommended Posts

There is usually a reasonable amount of planning before any lift that is not a repetitive lift. Lifting a reinforcement cage for a diaphragm wall is not typical, therefore planning of the lift cage is in place. That requires the preparation of a lift plan, but it is usually not done by the operator, rather a team of people. They need to assess the weight of the object, where it will be lifted from and where it will be placed at, chose the right crane/s to complete the task, do a preliminary lift study, carry out design works for all elements required checking by an engineer, carry out toolbox on site before the lift etc. The more complex the lift is, the longer this process can become and more steps could be in place to safely complete them. The approval process is usually multi-tiered and multiple people sign off on the lift plan.
