2-Day Practical Course on
Developing a Lifting Plan for Crane Lifting Operations
Lifting plan is a set of plans which is created for use in any crane lifting operations and it consists of all the important information that must be considered in a lifting operation thus ensuring that the lifting operation is carried out safely. It aims to facilitate consensus amongst all relevant stakeholders including the lifting crew for a safe outcome. Under the WSH legal requirements, all lifting operations shall be accompanied by a lifting plan.
This BCA Academy’s practical course will enable construction site personnel to prepare a proper lifting plan for crane lifting operations and implement the lifting plan in a crane lifting activity.
At the end of the training, participants would be able to prepare a lifting plan with good
understanding of legal requirements, load charts, crane safety and lifting requirements,
and be able to apply the lifting plan at a simulated crane location.
1. REGULATIONS AND CODE OF PRACTICE REQUIREMENTS FOR LIFTING OPERATIONS;
WSH regulations and Code of Practices requirements relevant to lifting operations will be discussed.
2. INTERPRETATION OF LOAD CHARTS FOR CRANES
Load charts of commonly used cranes will be presented and interpretation of the load
charts for the safety of lifting will be taught.
3. KEY INSPECTION ITEMS FOR CRANES
Daily inspection checks required before commencing a crane lifting activity will be
performed in the BCA Academy crane yard.
4. ELEMENTS OF A GOOD LIFTING PLAN
Critical elements of a good lifting plan and guidelines of creating lifting plans for lifting
operations in construction sites will be explained.
5. SAFETY OF CRANE AND LIFTING ACTIVITIES WITH ACCIDENT CASE STUDIES
With the use of recent real life case studies, safety aspects of cranes’ operation and
lifting activities will be emphasized.
6. LEARNING ACTIVITY: PREPARE A LIFTING PLAN
For a given lifting operation, the participants will prepare a lifting plan and discuss its
7. LEARNING ACTIVITY: IMPLEMENT THE LIFTING PLAN AT CRANE YARD
Participants will apply the lifting plan in the BCA Academy’s crane yard using a crawler
crane for a simulated lifting operation.
