IMCA issues revised lifting guidance

6. April 2018 | Comments (0)

The International Marine Contractors Association (IMCA) has published revised Guidelines for Lifting Operations - IMCA LR006, SEL019, D060, and M187.

The changes have been made to ensure higher levels of safety. These include added appendices on subsea lifts, diving operations, lifting personnel, lifting at extreme heights and dismantlement of offshore structures.

Included in the document is a new lift planning flowchart, a detailed look at the personnel involved – lifting team, lifting supervisor and dive supervisor - and their roles, a new lift categorisation flowchart, a section defining lift categories - routine, non-routine and engineered lifts, use of crane charts, tag line use, out of plane forces, vessel stability, heave compensation, and inspection, examination and marking of lifting equipment.

IMCA technical manager Mark Ford said: “The objective of the Guidance document, which is intended for worldwide offshore industry lifting operations, is that when each step of the process is followed, then every lift should be carried out safely. The Guidance shows the essential elements which should be included in company procedures for lifting operations, with industry recommended practice to promote safety.”

“The addition of the new sections, flowcharts and appendices means that all relevant material is now in just one 66 page document.”
