date and time. 1) 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. 2) 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. 3) 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. 4) 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 setup procedure will be carried out as per crane manufactures manual. 5) 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. 6) The Crane Supervisor will then carry out a radio communications check between the crane operator and the lifting crew. 7) 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.

Slinger/Signallers will plumb the boom head. the lower the hooks with lifting tackle to allow Slinger/Signaller to attach lifting tackle to load. will be as stated in section 7. 11) All slinging will be carried out by fully trained. 9) Signallers will issue instructions via hand signals or two-way radios to the crane operator to position the crane over first required lift. Once the lifting tackle has started to take the weight and has tightened the Slinger/Signaller will instruct operator or operators to stop hoisting.8) 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. certificated and experienced slingers. ready for work to commence. The Slinger/Signaller will then carry out a check around the load to ensure that the lifting tackle is sitting correctly. 15) Once lifting tackle check has been carried out the Slinger/Signaller will instruct the crane operator or operators. our Slingers will work to the Appointed Persons recommendations and to Health & Safety executives guidelines for safe slinging for lifting loads. Any delivery/removal vehicles will now be positioned adjacent to the crane as per attached drawings.3 and will have current test certification available. in the event that no manufacturer instruction or lifting points are provided. 13) The lifting tackle used. 14) Upon completion of the attachment of the lifting tackle to the load.
Instructions will then be given to the crane operator or operators to hoist the load clear of any obstructions. any tag lines that may be required will be attached to the load. the Slinger/Signaller will pass control of the crane signalling to a second strategically placed Slinger/Signaller at the landing area.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. 21) 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. 19) 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. or manoeuvre to the required landing area for single crane lifts. the Slinger/signaller will give instructions to the crane operator to manoeuvre the load as required for railing. 20) The Slinger/Signaller will guide the load to the correct orientation as the load becomes contactable by hand or by attached tag lines. 18) In the event that the landing area is at a different level or should access not permit. 17) Once the load is clear of all obstructions. ensuring that any site specific risks are monitored throughout the hoisting procedure. . 16) Once the Slinger/Signaller is confident that the lifting tackle and the load are secure.
