Planning for Load Handling Activities
The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), published the P30.1-2014 standard, Planning for Load Handling Activities on January 14, 2014. This American National Standard document was produced by the Standards Committee Personnel of which Marco J. van Daal was a contributing member. This document provides guidance for two types of lift plans;
– Standard Lift Plan
– Critical Lift Plan
Once it has been established if a lift requires a “standard” or “Critical” lift plan, this document takes you through the various steps of the lift plan development, pre-lift meetings, execution of the lift and post-lift review.
It contains sample pre-lift checklists as well as standardized lift plan data sheets.
This document is published by ASME and is available from their website. Clicking the “Buy Now” button will take you to the ASME website for further payment handling. The ASME website will open in a new window, but this window will remain open as well. Once you complete the transaction you can simply close the ASME window and return to The Works international website.
Best Practice Guide for Self-Propelled Modular Transporters
This Best Practice Guide is the result of the efforts and dedication of the European Association of Abnormal Road Transport and Mobile Cranes (ESTA) task force. For the first time in Heavy and Specialized Transport history the main industry players joined forces to publish this long awaited document. It deals primarily with stability of SPMTs but also touches base on training, communication and responsibilities. It offers an easy to implement flowchart that determines, based on a number of input parameters, what degree of engineering is required for a transport execution.
– First Degree Engineering (consisting of a few basic calculations)
– Second Degree Engineering (additional calculations are required)
The reason for this being such an important document is the composition of the task force;
– Collett Group Ltd., United Kingdom, Operating Company
– Fagioli S.p.a., Italy, Operating company
– Goldhofer AG, Germany, Manufacturer
– Mammoet BV, The Netherlands, Operating Company
– RDW, The Netherlands, Netherlands Road Authorities
– Sarens NV, Belgium, Operating Company
– Scheuerle, Germany, Manufacturer
– Shell, The Netherlands, Industrial Client
– The Works international, Aruba, Heavy Transport Consultant
– Wagenborg Nedlift BV, The Netherlands, Operating Company
The Best Practice Guide has been well received by the industry and is now available in English, German, Polish, French and Spanish.
This document is published by ESTA and is available from their website. Clicking the “Buy Now” button will take you to the ESTA website for further handling. The ESTA website will open in a new window, but this window will remain open as well. Once you complete the transaction you can simply close the ESTA window and return to The Works international website.
