Training Requirements for Material Handling Equipment

 

 

1.0          Purpose

 

Jefferson Lab requires qualified material handling operators to be approved by their Supervisor/Subcontracting Officer’s Technical Representative (SOTR)/Sponsor.  Training consists of classroom plus practical exercises in the proper operation of the machines and associated equipment and must be further approved by the Material Handling Safety Representative (MHSR).  Qualified operators are authorized to access material handling equipment through the use of engineered and/or administrative controls (key box and group leaders). 

 

2.0          Scope

 

Material handling subcontractors; crane and rigging subcontractors; and construction subcontractors are to be approved by the MHSR to operate Jefferson Lab’s material handling equipment, prior to commencement of work, on a job-by-job basis.  Previous experience, applicability of equipment, and currency of training are reviewed prior to authorizing a subcontractor to use Jefferson Lab material handling equipment.

 

Service subcontractors are not authorized or trained by Jefferson Lab to operate overhead cranes; but may be trained and authorized to use Jefferson Lab forklift(s) with the approval of their SOTR and the MHSR. 

 

Users may be trained and authorized to use Jefferson Lab’s material handling equipment with the approval of their sponsor and the MHSR.  Actual use of the equipment is strictly monitored and enforced by the area/group leader.

 

Additional training and requirements for the use of mobile or overhead cranes and hoists on behalf of Jefferson Lab is provided in ES&H Manual 6141 Appendix T1 Training Requirements – Overhead Crane/Hoist Operators and Rigging.

 

Additional training requirements for specific types of equipment are defined within ES&H Manual Chapter Appendices:

 

 

Training requirements are performed in coordination with ES&H Manual Chapter 6140 Material Handling Equipment Program.
