Introduction and Overview


By their very nature, lifting activities can give rise to hazardous situations resulting in serious harm to personnel, damage to plant and equipment, and business loss. This document describes the regime which will be put in place on all BP sites to ensure that lifting operations are carried out safely, in compliance with the requirements of The Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations (LOLER) 1998, SI 1998/ No 2307. The key components of this regime are: Categorisation of the lift by agreed standard definitions Development and implementation of a suitable documented lifting plan Suitable and adequate assessment of the risks associated with the lifting operation Correct selection and use of appropriate equipment (refer to Guidance on Lifting Equipment Supply, Control and Operation (UKCS-TI-012)) Involvement of personnel suitably trained, experienced and assessed as competent by the relevant authorised body

Uncontrolled

Clarity on roles, responsibility and primacy notably where co-contractor interfaces are involved The approval, authorisation and, where necessary, endorsement of lifting plans and their execution Maintenance of databases of approved risk assessments and lifting plans, and of a current register of personnel competent in respect of lifting operations Formal appointment of key personnel within the regime It is BPs strategic intent that any additional technical expertise in the execution of lifting operations will be sought from the BP Federal Mechanical Handling Contractors (MHC), who will advise Business Unit (BU) Technical Authorities and Site LOLER Representatives in respect of lifting operations on BP sites. Lifting plans for all activities shall be reviewed by the Site LOLER Representative before work commences. Note: The Site LOLER Representative will ensure an appropriate level of review of all routine and simple lifting plans before execution. It is recognised that most lifting activities on BP sites will be managed and supervised by contractors other than the MHC, typical examples being: Siting of new equipment as part of a project being undertaken by the engineering and modifications contractor Supply boat offloading/backloading being undertaken by the installation services contractor Day-to-day pick-up/layout of tubulars by the Drilling and Well Services Contractor

July 2002 Issue 3

UKCS-TI-014

Guidance on the Categorisation/Planning/Risk Assessment and Implementation of Lifting Operations

Day to day handling of tubulars, drilling and well services equipment in the course of well control activities involves a combination of routine, simple and complicated lifts. These activities are categorised as being Routine Drilling and Well Operations Lifting operations subject to full compliance with the controls and conditions laid out in Addendum 1. The assessment and planning of these lifting operations will usually be led by the contractors who are accountable for the safe delivery of the overall activity, and it is recognised that non-MHC contractors may have sufficient in-house lifting expertise to assess, plan and execute lifting operations. However, for the purposes of assurance of operational and technical integrity, BP requires that the arrangements for those lifting operations categorised as complex are reviewed and endorsed by the MHC Technical Support Engineer, (on behalf of the BU Authority or Site LOLER Representative) prior to work commencing. For those operations categorised as routine, simple or complicated, the approval of the lifting plans by a person suitably trained and qualified to ECITB Level 3 in rigging practices or equivalent, plus 10 years (minimum) experience, (typically a Rigging Foreman) is sufficient, prior to authorisation by the Site LOLER Representative. The Site LOLER Representative at his or her discretion may consult the MHC Support Engineer for guidance and further endorsement if there is any doubt as to the categorisation of any lifting operation. The MHC will supply technical expertise to other federal contractors in the development of arrangements for lifting activities, as requested, on behalf of the BU Technical Authority or Site LOLER Representative. To ensure uniform approach to lifting operations and procedures across all BP sites and Installations, it is mandatory that all pre-lift assessments should follow the definitions and format laid down in this Federal document.

Lifting Operations Control and Management Review Process


In the interest of safety, several factors should be taken into consideration prior to any mechanical handling lifting operation being carried out: Responsibility for the planning and execution of the lifting operation must be established (who is in charge of the lifting operation?) The lift must be categorised using one of the four agreed standard definitions routine, simple, complicated or complex An appropriate lifting plan (and method statement where necessary) must be developed by a suitably competent person, with input from those involved in the operation A suitable and sufficient risk assessment must then be carried out to ensure that the plan will manage all identified risks to As Low As Reasonably Practicable (ALARP), any improvements identified then being fed back into the plan

Guidance on the Categorisation/Planning/Risk Assessment and Implementation of Lifting Operations

UKCS-TI-014

The plan will then be approved, authorised and, where necessary, endorsed by appropriate authorities, communicated to those involved (Toolbox Talk) and executed by trained and competent personnel under appropriate site controls. Definitions of these stages are listed below: - Approval signifies the technical judgement by a suitably qualified and competent person (Level 3 in Rigging is a minimum) that the lifting plan and controls are adequate to manage the proposed activities safely and consistently with the requirements of BPs responsibilities under LOLER - Authorisation signifies the confirmation by the Site LOLER Representative that the correct management processes have been followed in developing and approving the lifting plan and the lifting operation can proceed subject to the site work controls - Endorsement signifies the review and acceptance of the lifting plan by the MHC Support Engineer on behalf of the PU Technical Authority. Endorsement is mandatory in respect of complex lifting operations and is at the discretion of the Site LOLER Representative for complicated lifts To assist with the risk assessment process, the lifting operations have been divided into four categories, as follows: Routine Simple Complicated Complex Routine and Simple Routine and simple lifting operations are usually implemented using generic lifting plans and risk assessments, each with clearly established criteria and limitations, which are developed initially using the approach described previously. The generic plan is then reviewed at a Toolbox Talk prior to being implemented by appointed competent personnel. Complicated Complicated lifting operations require a written method statement, in addition to the lifting plan risk assessment, the authorisation of the Site LOLER Representative and, where necessary, the endorsement of the MHC Technical Support Engineer, Structural Engineer, or the Performance Unit (PU) Technical Authority for lifting operations. The specific plan is then reviewed at a Toolbox Talk prior to being implemented by appointed competent personnel.

July 2002 Issue 3

UKCS-TI-014

Guidance on the Categorisation/Planning/Risk Assessment and Implementation of Lifting Operations

Complex Complex lifting operations require additional engineering input from MHCs Technical Support Engineer, Structural Engineer, or the operating sites equivalent Technical Authority for lifting operations and/or other specialist contractors. This input should be included in the risk assessment and subsequent method statement and lifting plan. The specific plan is then reviewed at a Toolbox Talk prior to being implemented by appointed competent personnel. Table 1 gives an overview of the definitions of the lift types and examples of their application. More detailed definitions of the lift types and the control measures are included in Addendum 1. Paragraph 4 defines appropriate minimum levels of competence for each category of lift. Notes: (1) Where the lifting activities simple, complicated or complex are likely to be repeated over time, the risk assessments, lifting plans and method statements should be held on file for subsequent review and reuse. Routine activities by definition are repetitive (usually daily or weekly) and as such, the assessments, plans and any supporting procedures should be held on file. They must be continuously reviewed to ensure they are current and reflect any changes to operating context. It should be noted that there is an important link between LOLER and PUWER (The Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998). In simple terms, PUWER applies to all equipment including lifting equipment; LOLER applies where the equipment is involved in a lifting operation. A working definition, for the purposes of this federal document, is that if the load being moved remains static (in the event of any failure of the equipment that is moving the load), then the operation is not classified as a lifting operation even if lifting equipment is being used. A practical example to illustrate this principle (developed from that cited in the ACOP guidance to LOLER Regulation 2) is that of a winch being used to move a load across a level surface. PUWER applies to the winch, but LOLER does not apply to this operation, as the load stops moving if the winch fails. However, if the winch was being used to impact a sideways force during a cross-hauling operation, then LOLER applies to the operation because, in the event of a failure of the winch, the load would swing about the point of suspension.

Roles and Responsibilities


The LOLER regulations require that every lifting operation involving lifting equipment is: Properly planned by a Competent Person Appropriately supervised Carried out in a safe manner Normally lifting activities involve several craft disciplines and authorities (stakeholders). So any system set up to manage lifting operations safely must recognise this inherent complexity and must ensure that roles and responsibilities and the competencies for each activity are clearly defined, recognised and there is a shared view of interfaces and boundaries. This paragraph details the roles and responsibilities of these stakeholders. Given the diversity of titles for similar roles across BP operations, contract strategies etc, the roles below are generic, however, each site and Installation must translate and appoint to suit their own organisations. With regard to lifting operations, some roles may be combined, eg Deck Foreman and the Competent Person, but it is essential that these roles are clearly stated in each site or Installation Safety Management System (SMS) document and understood by all. The generic stakeholders are: PU Technical Authority MHC Technical Support Engineer OIM/Site Manager The Site LOLER Representative The Site Competent Person MHC Site Representative and Crane Operator Area Authorities Performing Authorities A summary of individual responsibilities is shown in Table 2.

The MHC Technical Support Engineer is nominated as the person responsible for providing technical expertise, in support of all complicated or complex lifting operations, on the Installation/site. This includes the development of the scope and/or the supervision of method statements, lifting plans and task-based risk assessments, discussions with specialist engineers and contractors, ensuring all relevant engineering standards are applied during the development phase of the workscope and that the output from the engineering studies/assessments are documented and recorded. He is also responsible for the review and challenge or endorsement of complex lifting plans and, where necessary, complicated plans where other contractors have prepared these, prior to authorisation by the Site LOLER Representative.

3.3

The Offshore Installation Manager or Site Manager

The Offshore Installation Manager (OIM) (offshore installations) or Site Manager (SM) (onshore facilities) have overall responsibility for all aspects of health and safety on the Installation/site. In order to support delivery of these objectives in respect of lifting activities, the OIM/SM make two key appointments, one to a management role the Site LOLER Representative and the other to a technical role the Competent Person for the control of lifting equipment. Note: To ensure that there is no conflict of interest, the two roles shall not be combined. The OIM/SM shall appoint a Responsible Person the Site LOLER Representative under Regulations 8 and 9 of LOLER, SI 1998/No 2307 to ensure that good control and management of lifting operations is being exercised on the Installation/site. This nomination shall be documented, with the signed authorisation being displayed on the Installation/site noticeboard. The OIM/SM shall also appoint a Competent Person for the operation, control and management of the physical lifting equipment under Regulation 8 of LOLER to ensure that the issue of lifting gear on the Installation/site is controlled so that equipment is only issued to persons who are competent to use it, and that the lifting equipment is regularly checked to ensure continued fitness for use.

3.4

The Site LOLER Representative

The Site LOLER Representative has a managerial role, responsible for ensuring that a regime is established and maintained on the Installation/site so that lifting operations are carried out safely, in compliance with the requirements of LOLER, and for the implementation of the BP Federal lifting operation and lifting equipment procedures on the Installation/site (these documents are listed in Paragraph 5). This will require: The authorisation of all lifting plans and risk assessments for all categories of lifts by the Site LOLER Representative, supported by the MHCs Support Engineer and the BP Technical Authority for lifting operations as appropriate. This includes ensuring that it is clear who is in charge of specific lifting operations, and ensuring that primacy is clear in the case of co-contractor operations Ensuring, by documentary evidence, that all personnel involved with any lifting operations on the site have been properly trained and assessed as competent to relevant industry/national standards, and that a register of such personnel is maintained on the Installation/site. This includes resident site personnel and any ad-hoc personnel (such as drilling crews, wireline personnel and ad-hoc engineering contractors). Close liaison will be required with employers of those personnel to achieve the necessary levels of assurance of competence to perform the specific category of lifting operation Ensuring that the issue and control of lifting equipment on the Installation is rigorously controlled, in accordance with BPs procedures as laid down in Guidance on Lifting Equipment Supply, Control and Operations (UKCS-TI-012), by the nominated Competent Person for the control of lifting equipment. The lifting equipment shall only be issued to those persons on the register who have the necessary competence Providing the continuous in-house review to ensure compliance with the regulations and Company standards and procedures The nominated Site LOLER Representative has overall accountability for ensuring that the BP regime for lifting operations is applied on site. The postholder should have the necessary management skills to ensure that the framework is established and used by the various stakeholders involved, and to identify and resolve issues of interface and primacy. Although technical expertise in matters of lifting equipment and lifting operations is provided to the Site LOLER Representative by the MHC, the LOLER Representative must have a good understanding of the inherent hazards associated with mechanical handling operations and also be fully conversant with the requirements of LOLER and BP procedures. Specific training shall be undertaken by the Site LOLER Representative to ensure the necessary knowledge and technical appreciation.

The Crane Operator-Mechanic is responsible for ensuring that all servicing routines have been carried out prior to the crane operation to ensure that the crane can function correctly and is available to carry out the necessary lifting operations as required. The ultimate responsibility for loads being lifted or moved by the Installation crane resides with the Crane Operator, who should satisfy himself that the operation in hand has been risk assessed and included in the Toolbox Talk at the start of the shift. No attempt should be made to lift any load not subjected to an approved risk assessment or included in the Toolbox Talk. He will also ensure that all equipment is returned to the rigging loft prior to rigging loft 6-monthly changeouts.

3.7

Area/Issue Authority

The Area Authority (AA) is responsible for controlling lifting operations within their area and for bringing any specific hazards to the attention of the PA that may encounter during the execution of the work. Prior to authorising work involving lifting operations, the AA will satisfy himself that persons carrying out the lift are formally deemed competent to do so.

3.8

Performing Authority

Uncontrolled

The PA is responsible for ensuring that all personnel involved in the lifting operation are suitably qualified and have the necessary experience to perform the category of lift specified on the LOLER plan and risk assessment and that the lift is implemented safely and within the level and competency of those in the team. The PA is also responsible for briefing the work party involved in the activity prior to the task commencing.

Training and Competence Assurance


All personnel involved in mechanical handling and lifting operations on BP Installations/sites shall be trained to the relevant standard, have the requisite experience and be formally assessed as competent in the tasks to be undertaken. Training for personnel involved in lifting operations shall be to industry recognised standards and shall be undertaken at facilities approved by one of the following accredited bodies: OPITO, EMTA or ECITB. The training course curriculum for rigging personnel should be designed to assist the candidate to progress easily to the SQV level for rigging and lifting, particularly for rigging supervision. Documentary evidence of training and competence assurance will be required before any person is authorised to perform lifting operations on the Installation/site. A register of competent personnel authorised to undertake lifting operations shall be maintained on the Installation/site, to assist with the control of equipment issue and with the allocation of tasks. Ongoing competence of all personnel authorised to perform lifting operations shall be monitored by the Installation/site competence assurance standards. It is the responsibility of the employer to ensure that their employees competency profiles are maintained and are current. The minimum acceptable training and competency standards for the various disciplines and categories of lifting operation are set out in Table 3.

Category 1: Routine Lifting Operation Routine, uncomplicated lifting operations are performed regularly (at least on a daily or weekly basis) that involve basic slinging practices and the use of mechanical equipment such as cranes, chain hoists etc, implemented by people who are suitably trained to the required standards for this category of lifting operation and have the requisite experience. On most BP sites these lifting operations involve the majority of routine deck operations, boat transfers and the unloading/loading of road transport vehicles etc. A generic LOLER risk assessment, covering all aspects of these operations, must be conducted and subjected to continual review to ensure any changes in prevailing conditions are identified and taken into account. The risk assessment must involve all personnel involved in the execution of the lift and be approved by the BP site nominated Site LOLER Representative for lifting operations. The technique and format for this assessment should be similar to that of a Hazard and Operability (HAZOP)/Failure Mode Effect Analysis (FMEA) study where all applicable hazards are identified and control measures put in place to mitigate the consequence of the perceived hazard. To enable all aspects of the lifting operations to be captured, the Assessment Team should consist of all personnel involved in the activities, typically the deck or yard crew, Crane Operator-Mechanic, Mechanical Handling Technical Support Engineer, site Safety Adviser and the nominated Site LOLER Representative and/or the relevant Business Unit (BU) Technical Authority. The product of the assessment should be an approved procedure and plans for the routine lifts. Drilling and well service lifting operations require a combination of competence in both lifting and well operations activities. Routine lifting operations associated with tubing/casing and other general handling equipment on the drill floor, BOP deck and pipe deck can be categorised as a mixture of routine, simple and complicated. Therefore all routine lifting operations associated with drilling and well operations is to be categorised as routine and will require a generic risk assessment to be developed and approved. The drilling and well service crew, providing they are trained, have the requisite experience and are assessed as competent to Level 1 (refer to Paragraph 4 Table 3) may execute lifts for well operations that are classified as routine, simple and complicated but only if all the conditions listed below are satisfied: The lift is for drilling and well operations and not for maintenance of associated drill floor or well operations equipment The lift is on or above the rig floor/pipe deck or other drilling areas, provided that the appointed Installation Competent Person has agreed that the drill crew can execute the lift The lift has been assessed and the required lifting plan, risk assessment and, where applicable, method statement has been carried out The risk assessment recognises that the lift is to be carried out by the drill and well service crew

All persons involved in using lifting equipment have received training recognised by BP as equivalent to an OPITO approved Banksman and Slingers course and will have at least 12 months well operations experience in the previous two years One person is appointed in charge and in control of the lifting operation. He will be qualified to a minimum of Level 1 rigging and lifting course from an OPITO approved training provider and must have at least three years well operations experience in the previous four years The Senior Toolpusher/Well Service Supervisor (or his delegate) will maintain a register of persons appointed as competent to supervise lifting operations under this dispensation on the drill floor, BOP and pipe decks A formal, rig-site assessment is carried out by a D32/D33 assessor, and persons appointed to supervise lifting operations on the drill floor are also assessed within 1 month of drill operations commencing The use of permanently installed drilling equipment like the draw works, bridge racker and iron roughneck is already covered in existing drilling documents DOGS and their competence and management controls and is excluded from this document.

This instruction is intended to ensure the safety of lifting operations for all routine lifting and handling activities associated with drill floor, BOP and pipe deck operations. An example of the output from a typical risk assessment and method statement for routine deck and cargo handling operations, carried out on the Eastern Trough Area Project (ETAP) operating assets, is given in Addendum 4. Category 2: Simple Lifting Operations Simple or basic lifting operations are those lifting operations that involve the use of basic lifting accessories eg overhead travelling gantry cranes or manual hoists suspended from dedicated lifting structures such as runway beams, davits, padeyes etc directly above the load. The load being lifted must have certified lifting points and the weight of the load known. The persons involved in this category of lift must be trained to the required standards and assessed as competent to perform lifting operations under this category. These operations will be one-off tasks involving a lift with only a single item of lifting appliance and one set of lifting accessories eg sling shackle eyebolt, being employed at any one time. The use of generic lifting plans, accompanied by risk assessments and Toolbox Talks, will be adequate for this category of lift. The plans must be developed by the nominated BP site Competent Person for lifting operations and endorsed by the Site LOLER Representative. Copies of plans and risk assessments should be stored and maintained at the site in either electronic or paper format. Category 3: Complicated Lifting Operations Complicated lifting operations are those lifts which are difficult to implement, due to the nature of the load: Awkward shape Offset or high centre of gravity Fragile

Lifts with loads equal to or less than 2 tonnes that have no dedicated lifting attachments Lifts which require the use of non-certified steel structural support beams (refer to the note that follows this paragraph) The lift may require to be rotated, cross-hauled using two or more items of lifting equipment, or for tandem lifting operations using more than one lifting appliance. This category of lift must only be undertaken by personnel who have the relevant core skills and experience in implementing this category of lifting operation. They must also have been trained to the required standard, have the requisite experience and be formally assessed as competent to undertake complicated lifting operations. A Toolbox Talk will be required, addressing the lift to be undertaken, and copies of plans and risk assessments maintained at the site in either electronic or paper format For lifting operations categorised as complicated the method statement and lifting plans will be developed by the site Competent Person(s), who must be suitably trained to the required standards and experienced in mechanical handling lifting operations. Note: The method statement and lifting plans must be approved by the Site LOLER Representative and, if deemed to be necessary, endorsed by the MHC Technical Support Engineer. For complicated lifts involving the use of non-certified steel structural support members approval must be sought from a suitably qualified Structural Engineer (refer to the lifting operation approval proforma in Addendum 6). Category 4: Complex Lifting Operations Complex lifts can be any of the previous three categories but with additional hazards, such as: Being extremely heavy or loads with significant financial value Confined spaces, restricted head room Lifting over live or unprotected plants containing hazardous substances Subsea operations or involving Divers Lifts utilising floating cranes or other specialist lifting equipment or services Lifts greater than 2 tonnes which involve the use of non-certified steel structural support members As for complicated lifts using non-certified steel structural support beams the involvement of a suitably qualified Structural Engineer in the development and approval process of the lifting plan is mandatory. If the complex lifting operation is developed and implemented by expertise other than BPs MHC, it is essential that the method statements and lifting plans are reviewed and endorsed by the BP MHC Technical Support Engineers on behalf of the BP site Technical Authority for lifting operations.

Proforma for the Approval of Lifting Operations from Uncertified Structures

COMPLICATED AND COMPLEX LIFT CATEGORISATION

Information Required for Assessment of Uncertified Beams

For any assessment of a rigging plan that uses an uncertified beam it is essential to identify the beam(s) to be used. The best way of achieving this is to obtain a structural drawing of the area and mark it with the position of the proposed lift. This is important since the beam to be used may be carrying equipment or vessels and the existing stress levels will have to be assessed in addition to the stresses imposed by the lift. An alternative to obtaining the structural drawings is to show the location of the item to be lifted on a plot plan. This may allow the identification of the steelwork to be used. The following information is required: Sketch of proposed lift with heights and horizontal distances of move

Uncontrolled

Statement of proposed lift method Module number where lift is being carried out Can the lift location be identified on a plot plan? OR can the existing beams be identified on a structural drawing? (If a structural drawing is not available, the depth, flange width and span of beam is required) Comment on general condition and/or photographs of lift beams and/or a brief OIE inspection confirmation (email sufficient). Weight of item to be lifted Drawings and plans should be faxed to a Competent Structural Engineer supporting the associated Business Unit (this person can be the Engineering and Modification Contractor or the Structural Technical Authority for the Business Unit).
