11 In addition to surveillance, contractor crane operations may be audited at any time while on Newport News property to ensure: –The Certificate of Compliance is properly completed and displayed on the crane. –The ODCL was properly completed and retained. –All installed safety devices are operational. –The operator understands how to report a crane accident. –Equipment OSHA inspections and tests are up-to-date. –A completed lift plan is on site and being used. Contractor Crane Operations - Surveillance
12 Typical Crane Related Discrepancy Report (CRDR) Observations Operator Error Removed Anti Two-Blocking Device Tipped Crane Up Side loaded crane boom Not setting outriggers properly Operating with damaged running rope Talking on cell phone while operating crane Did not check out crane prior to making lifts Working Under/On Load Passing loads over people’s head Allowing personnel to work on or under a suspended load Travel Path Parking vehicles in yellow travel path Leaving material in yellow travel path 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.
Contractor Crane Operations - Lift Plans! Lift plans are required for each and every lift made while working for HII-NNS on or offsite. They must be briefed by the foreman prior to the lift. L&H consultants/management will monitor their use and shut down any lift that is not in compliance with this requirement!
Contractor Quality Control Control of material cleanliness has caused schedule issues, down time, rework and additional costs. Contract documents provide level of expectation regarding material handling. Contractors must develop their own quality control standards and procedures to provide quality products in accordance with the contract documents. 14
