Crane Lift Plan

Crane Lift Planning Process has two Parts-Crane Lift Plan & Crane Daily Safety Review


  1. A Crane Lift Plan (CLP) is needed for every crane lift on a (Company).
  2. In the case of Critical Crane Lifts (CCL), if authorized, may have to be analyzed by a competent, certified and professional engineer. 
  3. If lifting is required, then Crane Lift Plans (CLP) must be acknowledged at least 48 hours before the machine mobilization and in case of any critical and helicopter lifts, 5-five days before should be submitted.
  4. Crane Lift Plans (CLP) must be established on worst case % of capacity (for example. gross chart capacity) for each particular crane composition and location and activity (e.g., unload a delivery vehicle is contrary to the erecting steel activity).
  5. The Lift Plan should be valid for more than one day, as long as the composition, locale, and parameters utilized for developing “worst case” condition have not altered. Utilized a variety of lift plans for various locations.
  6. All rigging machinery, equipment or devices should carry the name of the manufacturer and disclose WLL and be accredited as to their capacity.
  7. Custom-Fabricated Devices (CFB) such as lifting beams, spreader bars, etc. may be sufficient with appropriate PE stamp or proof testing as needed by required and applicable standards. The capacities shall be marked and legible on all such lifting devices/machinery.
  8. The task or work that is not foreseen in the Crane Lift Plan (CLP), but may arise due to worksite circumstances e.g., moving heavy machinery, equipment, loading materials ground level floors must be abstracted with (COMPANY) in advance. 
  9. Modification affecting crane configuration and/or location may need the Crane Lift Plan (CLP) to be modified.

Sub-Contractor’s Accountability

  1. The sub-contractor is accountable to visit the worksite before the lift date to review crane setup location and documentary information relevant to the worksite, which is managed by (COMPANY). This information is also given as part of the construction documents. The sub-contractor is accountable for determining adequacy, supplying and installing for all supporting material & substances as described within 29 CFR 1926.1402) mandatory for the crane lift.
  2. The Sub-contractor is accountable and responsible to get all information that is mandatory to establish a Power Line Safety Plan (PLSP).
  3. The Sub-contractor is also accountable/answerable for the training of all workforce involved in the use of the following crane lifting operations: 
  • Rigging,
  • Signalling,
  • Crane Operation.
  • Assembly / Disassembly.
Information to be provided by the Subcontractor Along with the Crane Lift Plan (CLP):
  1. Competent and professional employee designation forms for Rigger, Signal Person
  2. Recommended and requested Training Certification as per Rigger and Signal Person OSHA 10 cards.
  3. Permit to Work,
  4. Job Hazard Analysis (JHA) for truckload /unload boom conflicts, public protection, Etc.
  5. Job Hazard Analysis (JHA) for power line encroachment
  6. Logistics Plan (LP)
  7. Weight of Material (WOM) – for example, bill of lading, calculation, manufacturers product datasheet, etc.
  8. Rigging Plan (RP)
The Crane Company must provide the below mentioned comprehensive information as an addition to the Crane Lift Plan (CLP):
  1. Competent/qualified employee’s designation forms for the operator and A/D supervisor (The A & D Supervisor that is accountable/answerable for the assembly and disassembly of lattice cranes machinery for various fields, industries such as construction projects, manufacturing plants, or shipyards)
  2. Employee’s credentials – Such as license, medical certification, OSHA 10 cards
  3. Load Chart (LC) (must be complete with proper notes)
  4. Range Chart. (RC)
  5. The magnitudes illustration and specifications for crane devices/machinery.
  6. Lightning and Wind Restrictions (LWR)- (from Operator’s Manual)
  7. Provision of a copy of annual 3rd party inspection certification and technical report
  8. (Note: The inspector shall be certified with the CCAA –OR National Required Lifting standards /certifications)
  9. Scaled worksite plan and elevation drawings.
  10. Job Hazard Analysis (JHA) for Assembly/Disassembly of crane and extreme weather 9heavy wind & rain) All crane work shall comply with the Site Specific Safety & Loss Control Program (SSS&LCP).
This is a sample for a crane lift. It is the responsibility of the Sub-contractor and Crane Contractor to ensure that they and their employees are appropriate and properly qualified, competent, professional, appropriately equipped and trained to perform the crane lifting activities outlined in this plan. Moreover, to ensure that the equipment/machinery (i.e. crane and rigging) is inspected and observed very closely and carefully, and used as per this plan and in a manner that complies with OSHA and the manufacturer operator’s manual,
