ERECTION

Bracing Erection in all Transfer points & Trestles and Crusher house
shall be carried out by using the crane or winch and other lifting
devices as per the requirement. Before lifting the bracing the crane
load chart, crane radius location, crane boom length requirement,
lifting devices like sling, D shackle requirements shall be studied to
suit the site condition.
For bolting of Bracing & Removing of slings & D shackles
appropriate load carrying Temporary ladder shall be fixed on the
bracing before lifting .ladder shall be made by approved drawing
which was already approved by BGRE Engineering department.
Same has been attached as annexure 1.
Bracing shall be erected by using the appropriate capacity of crane
or winch.
Winch shall be certified by OPGC along with third party certificate.
For Welding of bracing at all joint locations proper working platform
shall be provide. Lifting & lowering operation of working platform
has performed by winch with appropriate capacity. Rope pulley for
winch rope shall be fixed at proper location.
Winch has to be placed on proper foundation & supports. No
obstacles along the platform movement area has to be ensured.
Working platform drawings has approved by BGRE engineering
department.
Winch shall be operated by approved winch operator. One signal
man has to provide for work platform lifting & lowering operation.
All work man shall wear PPEs before accomplish the erection &
welding works.
Temporary ladder shall be removed after completing the erection &
welding of all bracings.

2.1. LIST OF TOOLS & EQUIPMENTS UTILIZE


1. Crawler crane/ mobile crane
2. chain pulley
3. winch
4. Rope slings
5. shackles
6. belt sling
7. Hammer.
8. rope pulley
9. Welding machine

2.2

List of PPES Utilize:


1. Safety belt
2. Helmet
3. Safety shoe
4. Safety jacket
5. Eye Goggles
6. Fall arrester
7. Welding helmet

3. Sequence of activities for Bracing Erection are as follows

a. Receiving material from stores and temporarily stacking them if


necessary in proper location.
b. Fixing of ladder on the pipe bracing by proper welding.
c. Lifting of bracing with proper lifting arrangement
d. Locating the bracing as per erection drawing.
e. Bolting of bracing with essential torque by hand spanner.
f. Removing of slings & D shackle using the temporary ladder which
was fixed on the bracing. (How temporary ladder to be
dismantled?)
4.

Sequence of activities for bracing welding are as follows:

a. Workmen will approach the bracing joint locations for performing


the welding work by working platform (joola) which has operated
by winch machine.
b. Winch machine lowering & lifting operation performed by winch
operator based on the signal man commands.
c. Welding of bracings
5.

Hazards during the Bracing Erection:


1. Person falling from height
2. Material falling from height
3. Hit by the object
4. Equipment Topple
5. Lifting gear failure
6. Electrocution
7. Fire hazard

4.

Safety measures to be ensure for erection as follows:


1. Appropriate PPE required
2. Job Briefing to be carried Out for Workmen.
3. Certified lifting equipment and lifting gear need to be used for
loading and unloading purpose.
4. Authorized person for crane operation and rigging operation need
to be deployed.
5. During lifting, Tag line need to be used
6. Erection methodology and erection sequence need to be followed.
7. Once the structural member hoisted, the member should be
secured with bolt, nut system/welding system as per the erection
drawing.
8. During welding, underneath area of the ground level to be
barricaded and underneath area of the welding location need to be
covered with fire blanket.
9. Fire extinguisher to be provided appropriated location & Fire
watcher to be deployed.
10.

During preparation of welding, welding cable to be run in such

a way that should not be a tripping hazard.
