POLICY AND SCOPE

FALL PROTECTION

Fall Protection is a broad concept that includes training, procedures, rules, systems and methods, intended to protect workers from fall hazards. Pence/Kelly requires fall protection for work activities that expose workers to fall hazards of 6 feet or more or over dangerous equipment. All employees must comply with the site fall protection policy. Failure to adhere to the site fall protection policy is grounds for immediate termination of offending employee This section is in reference to Division 3, Subdivision M – Fall Protection. Scaffold and Elevated Work Platforms are covered in Section 2.20. Ladders and Stairways are covered in Section 2.19. Steel Erection is covered in Section 2.18. PRE-TASK PLANNING A site specific Fall Protection Plan is required to be submitted and approved prior to performing activities that expose workers to fall hazards. You should try to engineer out the need for a fall arrest system during your pre-task planning. Examples would be prefabricating on the ground, using a man-lift, or installing standard guardrails. A company safety representative will approve Fall Protection Plans. Fall Protection equipment will not be issued from the shop without an approved plan. Fall Protection equipment is for exclusive use of Pence/Kelly employees and will not be loaned to others. Fall Protection Plan shall include the following: • Type of Work • Procedures • Assembly, Inspection and Disassembly • Rescue Plan • Training Program and list of trained employees • Date plan Prepared and Approved • Fall protection Equipment Required See attached sample Fall Protection Plan and Fall Protection Plan Outline FALL-PROTECTION SYSTEMS A fall-protection system refers to equipment designed to control fall hazards. All fallprotection systems either prevent a fall from occurring or safely arrest a fall. Types of fall-protection systems include the following: • Guardrail Systems o Top edge height of guardrail systems shall be 42”, plus or minus 3”. Guardrails shall have a midrail and toe board.

2.16.1

revised 10/19/2009

o Guardrail systems shall be capable of with standing a 200-pound force in any outward or downward direction. o Wood top rails and posts shall be at least 2”x4” and posts shall be spaced not more than 8’ on center. o Wire rope used for a top rail must be at least ¼” diameter and be flagged at not more than 6’ intervals with high-visibility material. o When guardrail systems are used at hoisting areas, a chain, gate or removable guardrail section shall be placed across the access opening when hoisting operations are not taking place. • Warning Lines O Warning lines may be used for roofing work. Roofing work does not include construction of the roof deck or leading edge work. O A warning line system shall not be used as fall protection on roof slopes greater than 2 in 12. O Warning lines shall be erected not less than 6’ from roof edge. O Warning lines shall be flagged with high-visibility material at not more than 6’ intervals. O Height of warning line shall be 34” to 39”, and capable of withstanding a 16 pound force when applied horizontally at the stanchion. Safety Monitoring System O Safety monitoring systems shall only be used for roofing work. Roofing work does not include construction of the roof deck or leading edge work. O At no time shall the Safety Monitoring Systems be used as a means for fall protection without prior approval of the Safety Manager. Warning Lines Used for Other Than Roofing Work O Warning lines may be used to mitigate the fall hazards by eliminating exposure. O When a safe work distance is designated, which may also include some sort of warning line or other barricade, it must be one that eliminates the potential for the worker to stumble and fall over the unprotected edge but at a minimum 10 feet. O There should also be a margin of error included in the distance since there is not a positive means of stopping the worker’s forward momentum toward the unprotected edge. o Factors that might enter into such an evaluation could include weather conditions, lighting, the slope and condition of the walking surface, the kind of work being performed, materials being handled, the height of the worker above the work surface (such as working from a ladder), housekeeping, training, experience, how much time the job takes, or the distance that the worker stays away from any open sides or edges. o The guiding principle to follow when evaluating warning or barricade lines is that the distance from the unguarded edge of the work surface must be great enough to remove the worker from exposure to a fall hazard.

2.16.2

revised 10/19/2009

o Factors to evaluate in determining the allowable use and correct location of barrier lines include such things as the kind of fall hazard present, the work being done and the exposure to the hazard, the pitch of the work surface, whether the deck is secure or not, the degree of slickness of the walking surface, weather conditions and environmental conditions (ice, moss, rain, wind, lighting, sun glare, etc.), what equipment is being used, access and egress protection, training, and supervision. o It’s quite simple, if there’s no exposure, then there’s no hazard, and thus, no violation. o Warning lines should be constructed the same as for roofing work. • Safety Net Systems O Safety Net systems consist of mesh nets, including panels, connectors, and other impact absorbing components. O If safety nets are needed, the designated competent person will oversee the installation and performance requirements of the system. Personal Fall Arrest Systems o Personal Fall Arrest Systems have four basic components. o Pence/Kelly exclusively uses DBI/SALA brand for the full body harness. (a limited number of Miller Harnesses remain to be replaced) The designed working load for DBI/SALA, combined weight (clothing, tools, etc.) is no more than 420 lbs., unless labeled otherwise. DO NOT EXCEED THIS WEIGHT. Body Support (Full body harness) • The only form of body wear acceptable for fall arrest is the full body harness. The Lanyard connecting device (Connecting components) • Lanyards shall be constructed of synthetic material (nylon rope, nylon webbing) and have a locking snaphook. • Lanyards will not be “tied-back” unless they are designed for that purpose (IE: Miller BackBiter). Carabiners shall be locking. • Lanyards, connectors and carabiners shall have a minimum breaking strength of 5,000 pounds. Deceleration devices (rope grabs, shock absorbing lanyards, self-retracting lanyards) • You need to verify if the retractable lanyard you are using may be operated flat, some need to be in the overhead position. Anchorage points ( includes: lifelines; horizontal and vertical) • Anchorage points need to be capable of supporting 5,000 pounds for each employee attached to it. • Anchorage points and lifelines are not required to be DBI/SALA brand.

2.16.3

revised 10/19/2009

• • •

If there are no permanent tie –off anchors installed on building, the Superintendent should work with the owner and architect to have them installed. Vertical lifelines are designed to be used by only one person with a rope grab for vertical mobility, only for up and down movement. Horizontal lifelines can only be used when designed, installed and used under the supervision of a qualified person. o Horizontal lifelines and their anchors are subject to much greater load than vertical lifelines. o Although two workers can tie off to the same horizontal lifeline, if one falls, the line movement could cause the other worker to fall, too, subjecting the line and anchors to even greater forces. o For these reasons, horizontal lifelines must be designed, engineered, and installed under the supervision of a qualified person. o Locations of anchor points need to be planned, considering free-fall distances and swing fall risks.

Covers o Floor and roof openings shall be protected by a standard guardrail system or covered. The cover shall be clearly marked “hole” or “cover” and be secured to prevent accidental displacement. Covers shall be capable of supporting at least twice the weight of employees, equipment or material that may be imposed on them at any one time.

PROCEDURES All components of PFAS shall be inspected before usage for damage and serviceability. Refer to manufactures instructions for inspection procedures. Lanyards, Harnesses, Lifelines and Retractable Lanyards shall be checked quarterly by job foreman or superintendent and marked with colored tape according to the Assured Grounding Program. RESCUE PLAN Workers who use personal fall arrest systems must be able to rescue themselves if they are suspended after a fall or they must be promptly rescued. Workers may be trained in self-rescue or aided-rescue. See “Fall Protection for the Construction Industry” pamphlet from OROSHA. Superintendent should consult with local fire department for rescue procedures and access to site. Only rescue trained personnel should assist with rescue.

2.16.4

revised 10/19/2009

TRAINING PROGRAM The employer shall provide a training program for each employee who might be exposed to fall hazards. The program shall enable each employee to recognize the hazards of falling and shall train each employee in the procedures to be followed in order to minimize these hazards. Fall protection training shall be site specific. The employer shall assure that each employee has been trained in the following areas: • The nature of fall hazards in the work area; • The correct procedures for erecting, maintaining, disassembling, and inspecting the fall protection systems to be used. • The use and operation of guardrail systems, personal fall arrest systems, safety net systems, warning line systems, safety monitoring systems, personal fall restraint systems, slide guard systems, positioning devices, and other protection to be used; • The limitations on the use of mechanical equipment during the performance of roofing work; • The correct procedures for the handling and storage of equipment and materials and the erection of overhead protection; and • The role of employees in the fall protection plan CERTIFICATION OF TRAINING Training shall be documented on the site specific Fall Protection Plan. The written certification record shall contain the name of the employee trained, the date(s) of the training, and the signature of the person who conducted the training. RETRAINING When the employer has reason to believe that any affected employee who has already been trained does not have the understanding and skill required, the employer shall retrain each such employee.

Let the machine do the work. indicate where the load is to go in advance so the operator can get the load to its destination quickly. o The operator may sound his horn when load is coming overhead stay alert to this sound. ask. o Warn other personnel if a load is coming overhead so they have time to prepare. Signaling – Using Hand o Make sure the operator can see you clearly. 2. swing left. trolley in. load down. Example: “load” o Keep the mike keyed in when signaling in the blind (when the operator can not see you and you can not see the operator) This will ensure that the operator will hear ever command. SIGNALING • Signaling – Using the Radio o Use standard crane and derrick signals (find attached) o Use one word commands whenever possible. o To stop the movement. trolley out. when load is near its destination you can fine tune location for placement. o Never stack anything higher than it is wide.IF ANYONE HAS A SUGGESTION ON A BETTER WAY TO DO SOMETHING LET YOUR SUPERVISOR KNOW.10 revised 10/26/2009 . o Use proper signals. o To begin the movement key in the mike. o When signaling the crane.OUR GOAL IS TO HAVE EVERYONE FEEL SAFE 100% OF THE TIME! . key in the mike. let the operator move the load that is what he or she is there for. load up.• o Stay out from under overhead loads at all times. Landing Loads o Avoid pinch points (stay out of the bite) o Keep fingers and toes out from under the load o Use proper dunnage (cribbing) Do not use 2x4’s on edge always lay them flat.

HEARING CONSERVATION PROGRAM The purpose of this program is to protect Pence/Kelly employees from noise induced hearing loss and to comply with all applicable state and federal regulations regarding hearing conservation at all job sites. All continuous. Administrative control involves rotating workers out of noisy areas and is of limited use if all work areas are noisy.1. If the employees are highly mobile or if there are significant variations in sound level or impulse noises. Dosimeters must meet the Class 2A-90/80-5 American National Standard Specification (ANSI) S. When employee noise exposure may equal or exceed an 8 hour TWA of 85 dBA. For example. Employees who are exposed at or above eighty-five 85 dBA will be notified of the monitoring results. Employees included in the hearing conservation program or their representative will be given an opportunity to observe the monitoring. B. Whenever employee noise exposures equal or exceed an 8 hour TWA of 90 dBA. After the initial noise exposure assessment. process.1 .

Altering the work process is a simple and effective engineering control. and sound level meters will be used for personal or area sampling. NOISE CONTROL A. A hearing conservation program is required by state and federal regulations whenever employee noise exposures equal or exceed an 8 hour time weighted average (TWA) sound level of 85 dBA.2. administrative or engineering controls must be used. welding machines can be moved further from the work site or a soft material can be placed in the jaws of pipe stands to absorb or deaden the noise. Dosimeters will be used to measure personal employee exposure. equipment or controls increases the sound level.27 INTRODUCTION A. dosimeters will be used instead of sound level meters.27. individual or representative monitoring will be conducted to determine actual employee exposure. monitoring will be repeated annually or whenever a change in production. Monitors will be calibrated before and after sampling.

and they operate by averaging the sound level throughout the day and calculating a noise dose.administrative controls are not feasible or do not lower the exposure level below 90 dBA. Effects Of Noise On Hearing a.27. the middle ear. The ear drum is a thin membrane which stretches across the ear canal ad separates the outer ear from the middle ear. TRAINING A. if a pair of ear plugs had an attenuation factor of 32 dB and the exposure level without earplugs was ninety-five (95) dB. then hearing protective devices must be used. The outer ear. Hearing protectors must be assessed for each noise environment and must attenuate employee exposure to at least an 8 hour TWA of 90 dBA. The middle ear is an air filled chamber that contains three small bones which 2. the actual noise attenuation would be 25 dB (32 dB – 7 dB) and the exposure level with those earplugs in would be 70 dB (95 dB – 21 dB). Hearing protectors will be made available to all employees at no cost to the employee. The training program will encompass three major areas. The OSHA allowable noise dose is 100% which corresponds to 90 dB averaged over an 8 hour day. B. and participation will be ensured by a quiz covering the material. Dosimeters are worn by employees during the work shift. . According to OSHA.2 b. The sound level of a normal conversation is approximately 65 dB. Employee exposure is measured with either a sound level meter or a dosimeter. B. A training program will be initiated for those employees exposed to noise at or above an eight 8 hours TWA of 85 dBA. and the pain threshold level or level at which pain begins is about 120 to 125 dB. and the inner ear. collects sound waves and channels them to the ear drum. For example. The human ear has three arts: the outer ear. The OSHA permissible exposure level for noise is 90 dB averaged throughout a work shift. Sound level intensity is measured in units called decibels (dB). the manufacturer’s attenuation factor should be reduced by 7 dB to determine the actual attenuation. Employees will be given a choice between at least two different types of suitable hearing protectors. Sound level meters are real time monitors that constantly display the current noise level. These hearing protectors must be worn by employees. Training will be repeated annually and include updated information on protective equipment and work processes. Supervisors will ensure that employees wear their hearing protection when it is needed. which includes the auricle and the ear canal.

Sound and specifically speech will still seem muffled and fuzzy no matter how high the volume. but the service life is limited ranging from a single use to several months.transmit sound vibrations from the ear drum to the inner ear. The cochlea is lined with tiny cells which turn vibration into electrical nerve signals that are perceived by the brain as sound. and care. Sensorineural hearing loss is a result of damaged hair cells in the cochlea and is often due to repeated and excessive exposure to noise. This hearing loss is permanent. use. For example. fitting. It is important to remember that attenuation factors cannot be added together when two hearing protectors are worn. c. d.27. the advantages. Hearing aids are not very effective for noise induced hearing loss because they function by amplifying sound. C. There are three categories of aural inserts: formable. if a worker is using a pair of earplugs with an attenuation factor of 30 dB. and attenuation of various types. and the hair cells sensitive to the higher frequency range around 4. The hair cells in the cochlea correspond to the audible frequency range which is 20 Hz to 20. Aging also causes some sensorineural hearing loss but noise induced hearing loss occurs more quickly and is more extreme. There are two types of hearing loss: conductive and sensorineural. Aural inserts-Aural inserts or earplugs are inserted into the outer ear canal. Hearing Protectors Hearing protector training will include the purpose of hearing protectors. Earplugs are usually inexpensive. Hearing protectors reduce noise exposure to a level which is designed to prevent hearing loss. Only 5 to 10 additional decibels of sound attenuation can be obtained from the added ear muffs. a.3 . Prolonged and excessive noise exposure will damage more and more hair cells causing permanent hearing loss over a wider frequency range. less sensitive to sound waves. and pre-molded. 2. and instructions on selection. custom-molded. disadvantages. and they are made with soft pliable materials to prevent any injury to the ear canal lining. Exposure to loud noises for an extended period of time causes the hair cells to become worn down and thus.000 Hz are usually the first to be damaged.000 Hz for a normal young ear. Conductive hearing loss is due to impairment of sound transmission before it reaches the inner ear and is usually not a result of prolonged and excessive noise exposure. adding a pair of ear muffs with a noise reduction rating of 20 dB does not result in a total attenuation factor of 50 dB.

Their attenuation factor ranges from 26 dB to 32 dB. 2. Pre-molded earplugs are either made in various sizes or designed to fit all ear canals like canal caps.• Formable earplugs are inserted by reaching over the head and grasping the top of the ear and placing an earplug that has been rolled between the fingers into the ear canal. Earmuffs are expensive but they last for a long time and they are comfortable to wear for extended periods of time.27. they may shrink and become hard if they come in contact with ear wax which extracts the plasticizer from some plug materials. Regular cleaning of these protectors with mild soap and water prolongs their useful life. but they last longer and are more comfortable. Custom-molded devices are made for the individual user and fit the ear canal precisely. but they have several disadvantages. The attenuation factor for pre-molded earplugs varies from 20 dB for canal caps to 26 dB for some universal fit earplugs. Noise attenuation varies with the type of earplug. • • • b. the attenuation factor decreases when glasses are worn because a proper seal cannot be maintained. Finally. the noise reduction rating for ear muffs is approximately 20 dB which is less attenuation than most earplugs. They are either attached directly to hard hats or on a spring-loaded headband. they have to fit snugly. In addition. and this may be uncomfortable for some. Circumaural Protectors -Circumaural protectors or earmuffs consist of two dome shaped devices that fit over the entire external ear and seal against the side of the head. Formable and custom-molded earplugs have the highest noise reduction rating because they fit the ear canal more precisely. These earplugs last longer because they do not need to be compressed with dirty fingers. the seals need to be replaced periodically because perspiration tends to extract the plasticizer from the seal material which causes stiffening. In addition. To be effective.4 . However. Custom-molded earplugs should be washed with warm water and mild soap periodically. These earplugs get dirty easily and should be thrown away when they become soiled. They are more expensive.

Inform the HOLE WATCH of these symptoms or conditions when exiting. though they may assist in ferrying tools and materials staged at or near the confined space entrance. The first and foremost requirement prior to opening a confined space is to first find out what the confined space was used for. and the exit of the confined space. The Site Superintendent (or designee) is required to review the confined space entry permit after the initial air quality testing is completed prior to entering the confined space. All Confined Spaces shall have a qualified “Hole Watch” posted prior to entry. A Hole Watch must be trained in his duties as well as being physically fit and able to complete his duties as required. and will determine if any flushing of the system may be needed prior to opening for testing.

This means that the excavation must be shored and inspected by a competent person prior to entering the exaction. • Physical . They must also be heavy duty. The tagging of controls alone. fans. Lock-out/tag-out procedures must be completed prior to the opening of confined spaces.

If at all possible, PRELIMINARY air quality testing should be done prior to opening the system. There are many ways to accomplish this. One simple way to test the air quality at the bottom of a tank, is to insert the test probe into the drain of the confined space. This will tell you if there are any heavy gases laying at the bottom of the unit, as well as letting you know that the unit is indeed empty. The next step is to check the top of the unit by using the top vent if possible. This will tell you if there are any light gases near the top of the unit. By doing an initial air quality check in this manner, you will be greatly reducing the risk of a potential accident.

b.

After a Confined Space is Open • After the confined space has been opened, the PRIMARY testing of the air quality can be done. The first thing that needs to be done is to check the air directly inside the opening. The first thing that needs to be done is to check the air directly inside the opening. The next, is to check the air directly inside the opening. The next, is to check the air at the bottom of the space followed by checking the air at the top of the space. This needs to be done because of condition known “stratification” takes place when air sits dormant for a length of time causing a layering affect to take place. The heavy components migrate to the bottom, and the light components move to the top, leaving the components with the near same molecular weight of the air we breathe in the middle. If only the middle of the space is checked, there is a chance that as workers move about inside the confined space, a toxic environment could develop and endanger the workers simply by moving and mixing different layers.

D.

Ventilation a. Prior to entry, there must be at least 5 air exchanges completed by ventilating the confined space. If the atmosphere is toxic, flammable or both, you will need to have a minimum of 10 air exchanges. To do this, you must know the approximate size of the confined space.

b.

The confined space is 20’W X 10’H. This would give you an area of 4,000 cubic feet. If you ventilate the space with an 8” red box fan rated at 1,500 CUBIC FEET PER MINUTE, it would take just over 2 ½ minutes to make one air exchange. To make 5 air 2.34.6

exchanges, it would take 12 ½ minutes. This would be the earliest time that anyone could enter the space. c. For toxic or flammable atmospheres, the 10 air exchanges needed prior to entering would increase the time to properly ventilate to 25 minutes. Continuous ventilation must be maintained while workers are in the confined space, if there is any possibility that a hazardous atmosphere could develop, including by the work process, i.e. welding, grinding, etc., being performed in that space. If for some reason the ventilation stops, the workers must be removed the space until it can be reestablished and the minimum per-entry air exchanges completed. All fans and other equipment used to remove flammable gases or vapors shall conform to NFPA requirements and not create an ignition hazard.

d.

E.

General Requirements a. Once the air quality and ventilation have been established, a few other areas of concern must be dealt with. The first is the permit system we use. This is to be used and maintained by the hole watch the entire time that the confined space is occupied. The permit contains all of the vital information found and near the confined space. As long as the hole watch is at the hole, they are in charge of the immediate vicinity outside the confined space, as well as all persons entering and exiting the area. If they say that everyone is to exit the space, they must do so. Should the hole watch be in a position to monitor more than one confined space, the following procedure must be followed: • •

b.

c.

Maintain constant contact with all entrants. Should an emergency situation develop in any of the spaces, all entrants are to evacuate so the attendant can focus on summoning rescue and emergency services.

d.

Should other contractors need to perform work in the same confined space, they must comply with the requirements listed on the permit. Should any incident or contractor’s work change the condition of the space, or place others at risk, a new permit with specific requirements to protect other will be issued prior to allowing re-entry. 2.34.7

e.

The written confined space program will be reviewed at least annually, and revised should additional hazards be present. Canceled entry permits must be kept on file for one year. Only designated competent persons may take the air samples needed for the initial entry, but the trained hole watch may preside over continuous air monitoring and take actions accordingly. The designated competent person must remain on site while any confined space work is taking place and confirm and document the air quality on a maximum time frame of 2 hour intervals. Communication shall be maintained between the hole watch and the people inside the confined space at all times. This can be accomplished by sight, voice, or radio communications. The hole watch must also have in their possession a signaling device that is capable of producing an alarm sound of 110db such as a police whistle or an air horn in case of an emergency. They also must have either a radio or be in close proximity to a phone with emergency numbers listed to summon help in the event of an emergency. Should situations arise such as employee complaints, unauthorized entry, or additional hazards, the program shall be reviewed and changes implemented as necessary.

F.

Hot Work a. Any hot work inside a confined space requires the use of an approved “HOT WORK PERMIT” prior to entry (See section 2.36). All combustible materials shall be protected from ignition at all times, and all flammable atmospheres shall be controlled. If the hot work produces any toxic gases, fumes or vapors, ventilation shall be required to extract these contaminates, and/or the use of the proper respiratory protection shall be implemented. Testing of the atmosphere inside the confined space shall be continuous as long as these conditions exist.

b.

Compressed gas cylinders are not allowed inside any confined space. They are to be located outside and monitored while in use so that they can be shut down if an emergency arises. Any time an oxy-acetylene cutting or brazing outfit is not in use, it is to be removed from the confined space and shut down to prevent any accidental release of gases inside the confined space. Also, any arc welding power must be shut down if an emergency develops. 2.34.8

G.

Retrieval Systems/Rescue a. Retrieval Systems are to e used anytime there is the possibility of an IDLH atmosphere, and or, the entrant is to enter a confined space over 5 feet in depth from the top. For the types of retrieval systems to use for your particular application, contact the Safety Department. Rescue personnel are to be notified prior to any entries into these types of confined spaces. This notification is to include the number of persons entering, the type of hazards involved, and the exact area of the confined space. They are also to be contacted at the end of the confined space work. Rescue and emergency services will be summoned by radio or telephone. Under no circumstances will anyone other than members of the designated rescue team (client provided, or the local fire department) attempt rescue. They will also provide needed medical service. Should an emergency situation develop, it is the attendant’s responsibility to summon the response team and to keep all unauthorized personnel from entering the space.

b.

c.

H.

Barricades/Postings a. During the initial set-up of the confined space, caution barrier are to be set-up around the entry of the confined space and barrier tags are to be filled out describing the work taking place. This area is to be maintained by the Hole Watch while any confined space work is in process. This area should encompass an area large enough to prohibit the entry of any fuel burning equipment than could introduce “bad air” into the confined space through the ventilation system in use, or possibly block any exit or rescue of the confined space.

EXITING CONFINED SPACES A. After work in the confined space is complete, the confined space shall be secured by posting or closing the access. The permit to enter is to be closed out by the Entry Supervisor and is to remain in file as a permanent job record. All barriers are to be removed, and emergency services are to be contacted and informed of the job completion if, applicable. 2.34.9

leading to bondbreaker absorption and poor parting characteristics. Also. and parking and truck areas. It is critical for the engineers and contractors to plan and review this process completely and thoroughly.2. Bondbreaker can be tested by dropping a small amount of water on the casting bed. o Check the slab and bondbreaker before pouring any concrete. The application of the curing compound on the floor slab is the most critical step in the preparation process.37. soapy feeling. steel trowel surface. For best results. A cure coat applied too late may render the slab highly permeable. Slab as a Work Platform o Initial grading of the site should include completion of all sub-grade work for the building floor. check job site restriction on tonnage or limitations on access to the site. Slab thickness and compressive strength must meet bracing designs. The erection of the wall panels is the most important phase of tilt-up construction. Effort must be directed to ensure that the tilting phase of the job is done safely and efficiently. the floor slab should have a hard. You may have to pour a thickened slab at brace locations Bondbreaker and Curing Compounds o Bondbreakers and curing compounds are among the most critical materials used on a tilt-up project. These products should have their performance criteria carefully evaluated. dense. This provides additional space for casting panels. Site Access and Job Conditions o It is advisable to investigate regulations on daily start up times. The tilt-up panels are normally cast on the floor slab of the building and any imperfection in the floor slab will be mirrored in the panel. o Plans should be made for stubbing all electrical and plumbing items below the finished floor level. the slab will only be as good as its sub-base. The slab should have a slightly tacky.37 PREPLANNING •  TILT-UP SAFETY • • • General Requirements o The nature of tilt-up construction dictates the need for thorough preplanning. Regardless of how much effort goes into producing a good slab. A roadbed and an accessibility ramp to the sub-grade should also be completed at this time. and provides an obstacle free area for crane movement. well compacted sub-grade. Emphasis must be placed on having a strong.1 revised 12/17/2009 . noise and dust control and job site perimeter fencing. The economy and success of tilt-up construction is realized by efficient on-site production operation and careful planning with each step of the construction sequence building on the previous step. o The quality of the floor slab in a tilt-up constructed building is extremely important. The application should begin immediately after the hard steel troweling and the dissipation of the excess bleed water. from two feet above 2.

37. Locate and prepare all pertinent embedded devices that are accessible. o Tilt-up panels should be cast as near as possible to their final location in the structure. For a smooth construction sequence. ERECTION • Preparation for Lifting o Clean the panel and the surrounding floor slab area. Mark locations and heights of all shims in case they are displaced. Place the identifying mark in a position that will not be exposed when the structure is completed. always apply more. drills. The structure footing should also be marked with the corresponding identifying numbers to give the erection crew clear indication where each panel goes. cleaned out and tested with a hardware unit several days prior to erection day. try to keep the distance as short as possible. if possible. two important criteria must be met: The panels must be located for efficient casting. Rotary hammers. Crane Certification o Cranes selected for tilt-up projects should be properly certified. The contractor should also 2. Attach all pipe braces and strong backs as required. o Each panel should be numbered and clearly identified according to the panel layout/erection sequence plan. If a panel must be "walked" to its final position. For larger panels. If the water does not bead. re-spray all of the suspected areas of the casting slab. Have additional cylinders cast on your last tilt panel pour. o All lifting inserts should be uncovered. level and plumb bob and a full set of hand tools should be available at the job site. A final note: whenever there is doubt about sufficient bondbreaker on the casting slab. "Walking" the panels should be avoided. Most states have standards with which erection subcontractors must comply. Contractors should make certain that they have documentation available at the job site attesting to the crane's certification. The footing should be appropriately marked to show the proper position of each panel on the footing. leveling shims. The panels must be located for safe and efficient erection. steel wedges. If the bondbreaker is applied correctly. pry bars. Do any dressing or patching that can be accomplished on the ground. cutting torch. An effort should be made to place as many side by side as possible. the water will bead into small droplets as it would on a freshly waxed automobile.2 revised 12/17/2009 • . Panel Casting Layout o The panel contractor should consult with the erection contractor in the development of a good casting layout. Have back up tools onsite. you may need a port-a-power for alignment. It is the cheapest insurance available for a successful tilt-up job.• to allow it to splatter. o Verify concrete compressive strength (f'c) at time of initial lift is at least the strength listed in the insert selection chart for the insert being used.

See attached safety check list and have all crew members go over it and sign it at the end of the safety meeting. this is the crane contractor's responsibility. These details are an integral part of the erection stress calculations and should be strictly adhered to. Braces are \usually attached to the panels prior to lifting. where all pertinent safety details are discussed and all questions answered. Inspect all rigging and hardware for alignment and be sure that the rigging is free of snags. All members of the erection crew will wear safety vests. Safety is everyone's responsibility and each crew member's safety depends on each other's safety practices. be sure that the braces will not be trapped by the rigging during the lift. The rigging foreman will wear high visibility gloves. they invariably tend to twist and rotate the hardware.• • • • obtain a letter of certification of liability insurance from the erection subcontractor. The rigging crew needs to be alert for this condition and halt the lift to realign the hardware. and how to use any necessary tools or equipment. Inspect all panels for projections (such as rebar) that may interfere with the process. make certain the sheaves are properly aligned. The erection details supplied by Tilt-up Technical Services Department will specify all rigging configurations and cable lengths required for the project. the rigger foreman should demonstrate the proper use of the lifting hardware and bracing hardware.37. o During the safety meeting.3 revised 12/17/2009 . If non swivel sheaves are being used. It is the rigger foreman's responsibility to be alert to any obstacles in the path of the panel and crew. This individual will be the one the crane operator looks to for all signals during the lifting process. Make sure the area is clear of spectators. Reinforce the need for all concerned to be alert during lifting. Be alert for panels sticking to the casting bed. o The rigger foreman should be identified at the safety meeting. Prior to Lifting o Check wind conditions prior to lifting a panel. If the crane is to use rolling outriggers. The rigger foreman must be experienced with handling panels and be familiar with the precise set of hand and arm signals to communicate with the crane operator. During the Lift o As the cables are being tensioned. Equipment and Crew o The panel contractor and erection contractor must itemize the rigging and equipment required for a proper and safe lift. Twisting the hardware can cause side loading. Only members of the erection crew will be allowed in area. Carefully positioned pry bars and/or wedges at the insert lines can often help the crane successfully release the panel from the casting bed. a warning to stay clear is in order. The erection details do not specify the diameter or safe working load of the rigging cables. 2. Day of Erection Safety Meeting o A full crew safety meeting should be held each day prior to lifting.

Coil bolts must have a minimum coil penetration through the insert coil. and attachment bolts bear fully on the hardware. no more than one panel behind the erection crew. If the panel being plumbed is a closure panel. depending on the building design. This should be accomplished as soon as possible.4 revised 12/17/2009 . unintended loading.

This excavated area can be up to five or six feet deep. take exact measurements prior to lifting to be sure the panel will fit. the lateral and end bracing can be completed. but are not bearing on concrete at the bottom of the void. When the bracing design specifies a subsequent system of knee. AFTER THE LIFT • When constructing the floor slab. putting the panel and workers in a dangerous position. Attempts to adjust a panel after subsequent bracing is in place would necessitate loosening or removing the bracing. Bracing Panels o All bracing should be in place and complete before relaxing the crane load. lateral. Bolted hardware must have full bearing on the concrete surface. generally three to five feet wide is often open to facilitate the footing excavation. Keep the area surrounding the panel clear of workers until the panel is firmly braced. Once the crane has cleared the area. do not use wedge anchors for braces. tightness of bolts must be checked. o Tilt-up panels should be as plumb as possible prior to attaching the bracing to the floor slab. Fine tuning of the panel plumb can be accomplished with the pipe braces. The perimeter strip must be backfilled and compacted very carefully to avoid movement or bending of the panel. o There are instances when the crane's position will prevent the lateral bracing to be completed. The supporting panels need to be accurately placed in their exact position to prevent the need of adjusting them after placement of the spandrel or lintel panel. Temporary out-of-plumb should not exceed 4" at the top of the panel. Bracing on erected panels must be completed at the end of the work day. the bracing does not appear adequate. and won't be backfilled until after the wall panels have been erected. After winds of more than 35 mph or more have been experienced.37. The crane load should be released slowly.• • Plumbing the Panels o Make certain that the panel being plumbed does not strike a previously erected panel or panel bracing. Caution must be taken so that the hardware is not subjected to a side loading that will cause an additional. a perimeter strip. o There are two common conditions that require a panel to be plumb before releasing the crane: When the panel is going to support an adjacent spandrel or lintel panel. Do not release the crane load if for any reason.

• • Wall braces should never be removed until all structural connections are complete.5 revised 12/17/2009 . If the building's structural drawings do not indicate when the braces can be removed. 2. the engineer of record should be consulted.37. Note that the perimeter strip between the floor slab and the wall panels is considered a structural connection.
