Lift Plans and Technical Support
If you are looking to hire a crane you may need a Lift Plan to ensure full compliance with health and safety legislation. GGR’s fully certified Appointed Persons can create a detailed Lift Plan, method statement and risk assessment for your project.
Why is a Lift Plan important?
Lifting operations can often put people at great risk of injury, as well as incurring great costs when they go wrong. It is therefore important to properly resource, plan and organise lifting operations so they are carried out in a safe manner.
Each of these elements requires a person or people with sufficient competence to be involved at each step. These people should have sufficient theoretical and practical knowledge of the work and equipment in question, as well as the requirements of the law, to be able to do this properly. For complex and high-risk operations, the planning and organisation should be extensive and meticulous.
For complex lifting operations (e.g. a tandem lift using multiple cranes), a written plan should be developed by a person with significant and specific competencies – adequate training, knowledge, skills and expertise – suitable for the level of the task. GGR’s Appointed Persons have the skills, knowledge and qualifications that will ensure the safe and efficient planning of your lift.
Once your lifting operation is underway, GGR’s support doesn’t end; our lifting experts are on hand to answer any technical queries you may have. GGR is committed to offering you market leading support before, during and after your project.
