In parallel with the development of industry and technology, creating a healthy and safe working environment has become the primary condition of working life. With the Occupational Health and Safety Law No. 6331, which was enacted for this purpose, risk assessment studies were made obligatory, it was aimed to establish a healthier and safer working environment by determining the risks in advance, determining the risks and developing a general prevention policy in the workplaces. Along with these developments, another factor that gained importance has been the “security” factor.

The issue of occupational safety, which has become increasingly important in all branches of the industry, has brought along an increase in the efforts to protect employees and businesses by developing the measures to be taken during the establishment, operation, maintenance and repair of the systems. Researches reveal that most of the occupational accidents in the energy sector are caused by falling from height and electric shock. Ensuring safe working at height and measures to be taken against electric shock are of great importance in terms of reducing occupational accidents. Factors such as lack of information, errors in personnel assignment, inadequacies in occupational safety measures, design errors, use of inappropriate personal protective equipment, insufficiency of control and maintenance programs, errors in rewarding systems, use of unsuitable working methods in terms of occupational safety are some of the reasons for falling from height. As a result of the increasing energy need with industrialization, the capacities of electricity generation, transmission and distribution facilities are also increased. As a result of technological developments, the need for security is increasing. Assessment of adequate – insufficient and positive – negative situations in lifting and conveying equipment in terms of occupational health and safety constitutes the main subject of this LIFTING PLAN.

Some regulations on Occupational Health and Safety are related to the issue. The Occupational Health and Safety Law No. 6331, published in the Official Gazette dated 30 June 2012 and numbered 28339, entered into force as of 01 January 2013. The enactment of such a law, which brings regulations to working life, is of great importance in terms of worker health and safety. In addition, the publications of the Labor Inspection Board and the publications of the general directorate of occupational health and safety are among the studies that will guide occupational health and safety measures in lifting and conveying equipment. Lifting and conveying equipment, which is great convenience in working life, poses significant dangers in case of not fulfilling the necessary activities in terms of occupational health and safety. For this reason, it is of great importance to use the correct equipment and to be suitable for human, load and environment when lifting loads to be transported to other points.

Preparation of working methodology after and before the lifting plan, and safe lifting and transportation plan training are provided.

Lifting and Transport Plan Preparation Processes

  • Company site visit and due diligence
  • Controls of the equipment for which a safe lifting and transportation plan will be made,
  • Determination of suitable and safe methodologies
  • Determination of suitable tools and equipment for lifting and carrying equipment specified in TS-EN standards in accordance with the methodology
  • Making calculations for each equipment for the lifting plan by preparing instructions in accordance with the working methodology.
  • Combining the work done, submitting them for approval, and presenting them in print and report.
  • 4 hours of training on the lifting plan.
