An excerpt from ISNetworld® RAVS®* Safety plan Mechanical Equipment Operations Near Energized Lines Program


Employers must comply with all manufacturers’ procedures applicable to the operational functions of equipment, including its use with attachments, must be complied with.   If they are unavailable, they must develop and comply with their own procedures. Procedures for operations must be developed by a qualified person; procedures for capacity must be developed and signed by a registered professional engineer. These procedures must be readily available to the operator in the cab. If not (e.g., electric failure), operations must cease. The operator shall have access to procedures applicable to the operation of the equipment. Procedures include rated capacities (load charts), recommended operating speeds, special hazard warnings, instructions and operator's manual.    

 Operators are not allowed to be distracted by other activities, such as use of cell phones. They cannot leave the controls with a suspended load. Out of service equipment must be tagged-out and not operated until tags are removed by an authorized person.

 The operator must verify that the controls are working and that all personnel are in the clear before starting the engine. A competent person must determine if equipment must be secured when a local storm warning is issued. If any repairs or adjustments are made, notifications must be made in writing. Safety devices and operational aids are not a substitute for professional judgment by the operator.

 A competent person must verify that rope is being reseated properly on the drum, if slack rope requires it. A competent person must also adjust the equipment or operations for wind, ice and snow conditions.
