6141 Appendix T6

Below-the-Hook Lifting Devices

 

 

1.0          Purpose

 

At Jefferson Lab below-the-hook lifting devices (BTHLD) are designed, built, and purchased to perform specific functions.  This appendix outlines the requirements for the design, production, use, and modification of these devices.

 

2.0          Scope

 

Devices that have not met the requirements of this procedure are to be referred to the Material Handling Safety Representative for inspection, testing, or appropriate use determination. 

 

A BTHLD is not to be used without an appropriate name plate or other permanent marking; nor for anything other than its intended purpose.

 

Process steps are performed in coordination with ES&H Manual Chapter 6140 Material Handling Equipment Program and ES&H Manual Chapter 6141 Material Handling – Rigging, Cranes, and Hoists.

 

3.0          Responsibilities

NOTE:           Management authority may be delegated at the discretion of the responsible manager.

 

3.1            Material Handling Safety Representative (MHSR)

·       Maintain records for all approved BTHLD at Jefferson Lab.

·       Ensure a load test is performed on all BTHLDs in accordance with DOE Standard 1090-2007: Hoisting and Rigging Standard (Formerly Hoisting and Rigging Manual); Chapter 14 Below-the-Hook Lifting Devices.

 

3.2            Qualified Engineer

·       Design and produce BTHLDs in accordance with the provisions of ASME B30.20, ASME BTH-1, and Jefferson Lab’s requirements.

 

3.3            BTHLD Custodian

·       Ensure BTHLD under your authority are maintained, inspected, and used in accordance with this procedure.

 

4.0          Process Steps

 

Responsibilities for each process step are outlined within the procedure.

 

4.1            Design

 

It is recommended that the MHSR be contacted prior to commencement of this procedure.  Several BTHLD are available in storage which may be adequate for your operation.

 

Step 1:          Submit BTHLD Design to Appropriate Engineering Department

·       Submit a draft BTHLD design concept, or description of requirements, to the engineering department.

·       An engineering drawing is developed by a qualified engineer to comply with ASME B30.20, ASME BTH-1, and per department procedures.  (See also: Welding and Brazing Program Supplement.)

·       The drawing is reviewed and signed by a second qualified engineer.

 

Step 2:          Submit Drawing to MHSR for Approval

 

·       The Engineer-of-Record – starts a BTHLD Engineering Note, and submits the note and reviewed drawing to the MHSR for approval.

·       MHSR – reviews, and if found to be appropriate, approves the drawing for production.

o   Retains the note and a copy of the approved drawing on file.

o   Returns the approved drawing to the Engineer-of-Record.

 

4.2            Production

 

Unless otherwise stated the Engineer-of-Record is responsible for the following process steps:

 

Step 1:          Fabrication

·       Assign production of the BTHLD to an in-house fabricator, or a qualified vendor (in accordance with ES&H Manual Chapter 6140 Appendix T2 Procurement of Material Handling Equipment). 

·       Ensure it is produced in accordance with drawing specifications.

 

Step 2:          Approve for Use:

 

If Produced In-House:

·       Schedule a Load Test with the MHSR.  This is to be performed in accordance with DOE Standard 1090-2007: Hoisting and Rigging Standard (Formerly Hoisting and Rigging Manual); Chapter 14 Below-the-Hook Lifting Devices.

·       Upon completion of satisfactory test, MHSR will provide a label (see Section 4.5 Labeling below) designating approval for use.

 

If Produced by Outside Vendor: (In accordance with ES&H Manual Chapter 6140 Appendix T2 Procurement of Material Handling Equipment.)

·       Prior to acceptance of the item, schedule a review with the MHSR.  Acceptance criteria includes:

o   A qualifying Load Test has been performed, and

o   Item has been properly labeled.

 

Upon successful completion, or confirmation, of a qualifying load test and acceptable labeling, the BTHLD custodian may take ownership of the device. 

 

4.3            Maintenance, Inspection, and Use

 

The BTHLD Custodian is responsible for the following requirements:

 

·       Ensure BTHLD is maintained in usable condition per department procedures.

·       Perform appropriate inspections prior to each use.  (See ES&H Manual Chapter 6141 Appendix T3 Inspection Procedures – Overhead & Mobile Cranes, Hoists, and Rigging.

·       Ensure the BTHLD is used only for its intended purpose.

 

4.4            Alterations to BTHLD

 

Jefferson Lab recognizes that from time to time a BTHLD may require repair, modification, or be assigned a task other than its intended purpose.  When this happens it must be designed, reviewed, approved, and produced, as if it were new.

 

4.5            Labeling

 

If Produced In-House: The following label (example noted below) is attached to, or otherwise denoted on, the device.

 

Example of Approved BTHLD Label

Capture

 

If Produced by Outside Vendor: The following information is minimally required to be attached to, or otherwise denoted on, the device:

 

·       Manufacturer’s Name

·       Manufacturer’s Address

·       Serial Number

·       Lifter Weight, if over 100lbs (45kg)

·       Rated Load
