Lift Plans
 Load weight at boom length and
angle.
 Include weight of lifting gear.
 Specify lead rigger.
 Ensure communication methods are
established.
 Determine the location of the load’s
center of gravity.
 Always perform a second check prior
to lifting equipment/material.
 Strongly urged to perform lifts under
75% crane capacity.
 Lifts above 75% capacity are considered
critical lifts.
3
Lift Plans
 Specify all gear capacity.
 Check gear before every use.
 Current Inspection tag within inspection
date.
 Surface cracks, cuts, or gouges.
 Evidence of heat damage.
 Excessive wear.
 Core protrusion in straight runs.
 Severe kinking or crushing.
 Any sign of possible damage
 Decrease lifting gear capacity at
determined angle.
 Risk Assessment
 Pinch Points
 Weather conditions
 Limited Visibility
 Travel path of load
 Landing site

Typical Crane Observations
• Improper Rigging
– Using damaged slings
– Using handling equipment
improperly
– Lifting unbalanced loads
– Point loading hooks
• No or Inadequate Lift Plans
– Failure to have a lift plan on the job
site
– Failure to provide complete details
and/or process to make a successful
lift on a lift plan.
– Inadequate risk assessment and
mitigation
• Travel Path
– Parking vehicles in yellow travel path
– Leaving material in yellow travel path
5
• Operator Error
– Removed Anti Two-Blocking Device
– Side loaded crane boom
– Not setting outriggers properly
– Operating with damaged running
rope
– Talking on cell phone while
operating crane
– No operators daily check list
(ODCL) performed
• Working Under/On Load
– Passing loads over people’s head
– Allowing personnel to work on or
under a suspended load
Lifting & Handling Highlight - Crane Envelope
Requirements
• SOP O40-2.3, FACILITIES & WATERFRONT SUPPORT PROJECT
DESIGN PROCESS
• (4)(j) –
– Sensitive Work Area – A work area that requires special consideration above and
beyond a typical work site due to the potential to disrupt critical operations or which
requires special permission to perform work on or in. Examples include but are not
limited to: Computer Data Center, RadCon Controlled Areas, SWMU (Solid Waste
Management Areas), Security Features, Crane Envelopes, Government Owned
and Operated Facilities (SGCC, NRRO), Certified Dry Dock Facilities, Certified
Railroad Tracks, etc
• (6)(a)(23) –
– Facility modifications in or near a crane envelope merit special attention. Comply
with Figure 2 to ensure design avoids fouls with the crane envelope.

Lifting & Handling Highlight - Crane Envelope
Requirements
• SOP O40-2.6, FACILITIES & WATERFRONT SUPPORT PROJECT
START-UP & COMMISSIONING PROCESS
• (4)(d)(1) –
– Develop Pre-start Checklist (CxD-1) – Create a customized list of conditions,
parameters, readings, settings, etc. that are important or required to verify before
the equipment is initially started. Refer to equipment manuals and similar
installations for these items. Examples of pre-start checks are fluid levels, motor
rotation, PLC I/O checks, leveling, torque values, insulation resistance, voltage, etc.
If applicable, the Commissioning Engineer shall ensure that the Work Authorizing
Document (SAP Notification), has been completed and signed off by the Crane
Audit group for work that encroaches within the crane’s envelope. (See Reference
b – FWS Design Process SOP for Facilities Modification and/or Repairs in or Near
the Crane Envelope flow chart and details.)
• Reference (b) is SOP O40-2.3

Securing Material During High Winds
 Be aware of high wind advisories.
 Ensure that light items are secured to
heavy permanent structures.
 Bundle items together if possible.
 Remove any trash or refuse from job site
as often as possible.
 Construction sites must be left secured
and in orderly fashion when unattended.
10
Excavation
 Excavation Permit
 GIMMS Map supplied by coordinator.
 The GIMMS System and its maps are a
work in progress and constantly updated.
 Currently displays mechanical utilities with
the best information available at the time.
 This year the GIMS team will add 30 psig
steam and high voltage.
 The GIMMS System needs your support for
growth and accuracy.
 GIMMS map to be kept with dig permit form
on job site.
 Unknown Utilities
 Contact coordinator immediately.
 Coordinator to contact Water Tender and/or
Emergency Electrician.
 Determining if a utility is abandoned, or active is
the responsibility of the coordinator and the utility
system owner.

11
Performing any modifications to utilities found
during excavation must be approved by the
coordinator and the utility system owner.
Excavation
• Drilling inside buildings:
– Drilling performed into building floors and walls where possible utility damage could
occur:
• Floor or Wall scan- Check for rebar, mechanical, and electrical utilities.
• Determine if an enclosure 3 of RCWP V-15 is necessary when performing work in
a nuclear or radiological building. Contact your coordinator.

Excavation
• Any excavation must be barricaded, fenced or otherwise protected
against accidental entry by pedestrians.
• OSHA 29 CFR
– 1926.651(c)(2)
• Means of egress from trench excavations. A stairway, ladder, ramp or other
safe means of egress shall be located in trench excavation that are 4 feet or
more in depth so as to require no more than 25 feet of lateral travel for
employees.
13
Hand Rail Requirements Around Openings
• A brace must be installed on
every corner.
• Cable must be taut and
secured with two clamps.
• Hand rail:
– Top rail 42” minimum – 45”
maximum height.
– Middle rail must be 21” bellow top
rail.
– 48” Minimum – 8’ maximum
spacing between braces
– Top rail must withstand a force of
200lbs.
• OSHA 1910.23(e)(3)(i) 1910.23(e)(3)(v)(c)

Background Checks
•
15
Time Frames

– A new background investigation is required should the
individual change employers or have a break in service lasting
90 days or more.
Waste & Scrap Disposal Plan
• Each project will have a waste and scrap disposal plan.
– Dumpsters, excavated soil storage area, storage containers, etc.
• NNS recycled materials.
– O46 approval must be obtained before any asphalt or concrete is sent to the north
yard recycling bins.
– Contact O46 Rich Giunti (757) 880-3549.
• Each project coordinator and contractor foreman must develop a
recycle plan.
– The plan must include:
• Temporary secure storage to avoid pilferage.
– High-value scrap (stainless steel pipe, copper pipe, copper or aluminum
wire, lead coated copper cable, etc.) shall be removed to the scrap yard at
the end of each day or secured in a storage container.
• A path to the NNS recycle system when appropriate (i.e., scrap yard).
