Only trained and authorised persons are permitted to operate the plant
Prior to setting up the operator and the designated banks man will assess
the ground conditions for stability to prevent subsidence.
The crane will be set up as close to the lift area as possible to avoid over
reaching.
The crane operator will not attempt to lift outside the specified crane
capacity
The load should always be Kept close to the ground
The crane operator should maintain a steady speed during the operation
Ground conditions : The crane company you have elected to use can give
you suitable words to the effect that the ground on which the cranes will
operate from are capable of supporting the weight of the cranes and load.
Crane outriggers will use ground mats and supporting grillages to provide
additional support.
Where possible an exclusion zone should be erected to segregate the
work area from other plant.
Setting up will be under the control of the banksman. The banksman
should ensure there is adequate space between the crane and any
structures and take into account the swing radius.
Before starting the crane operator shouldS carry out a trial run to ensure
there is adequate room.

All instructions to the excavator operator will be given by the banks man
(where possible this will be with the use of 2 way radios)

The crane operator will ensure that the plant is never left running or a load
suspended when he is not in attendance.
The operator will ensure the keys are removed and the cab doors locked
when he is on a break or at the end of his shift
Ensure suitable barriers are erected around the lift.
Ensure suitable warning signs are attached around the lift area.

Ensure each lift is planned and assessed, avoid double handling of materials.
Ensure the route to be travelled is free from obstacles or hazards and has
adequate lighting.

Look at the individual and their capabilities (ensure they are capable of lifting or
moving the load). Assess the load for size, shape, weight, and stability before it is
moved. Never try to lift above your own capabilities.
