Hoisting & Rigging Assessment Plan


    Assessment Plan

    NNSA/Nevada Site Office Facility Representative Division

    Performance Objective: To determine that hoisting and rigging operations are conducted according to “industry best standards” for increasing equipment reliability

    while assuring worker safety, and to verify issues being addressed in BN Hoisting assessment.


    Lifts are identified and categorized appropriately for scheduled maintenance. DOE-STD-1090-2001

    An integrated process ensures safety issues are identified and controls established. DOE-STD-1090-2001

    Personnel operating and maintaining the hoisting equipment are trained; they understand their roles and responsibilities. DOE-STD-1090-2001

    Maintenance conducts safety inspections of hoisting and rigging equipment on a scheduled basis, certifying that safe operations are in compliance with good conduct of operations. DOE-STD-1090-2001

Equipment operators comply with industry best standards for operating hoisting and

    rigging equipment. DOE-STD-1090-2001

    Management ensures that all personnel operating hoists have been medically xamined and certified as fit to perform their duties. DOE-STD-1090-2001
