To Study Lifting Operation Plan of Toppling Process From Preliminary Hazard Analysis to Prevent Hazard
Hiren Patel,  Pravin Patel
Lifting operations and associated equipment have become commonplace within the all over world of various industries. On the other hand, recent high shape accidents involving lifting equipment have shown that the effect of its mishandling can have serious cost and health implications. The main aim of this research was to study lifting plan with the help of lifting operation process (LOP) via preliminary hazard analysis (PHA). People perform PHA and LOP studies and, therefore, such studies themselves are subject to various possible human failures. Much less attention has been paid to the human factors that influence the performance of PHA and LOP studies than human factors that influence hazard scenarios. Human failures in the performance of PHA and LOPA studies should be of significant concern to practitioners as such studies are difficult and time-consuming activities that place significant demands on participants, which increases the chance that errors will be made. Human factors such as eagerness to rely on the unsubstantiated opinions of others, groupthink, underestimation of the frequencies of low-probability, high-consequence events, and allowing a false sense of accomplishment to distract from implementing study results must be recognized and addressed. This paper identifies a proper preliminary steps that can influence the quality of PHA of tools and tackles for lifting equipments with toppling process and LOP studies covering preparing for, conducting, recording, documenting, and following-up on studies. Lifting operation plan; its design and analysis has been done with PHA process and its result shows that it may resolve the study of quality related to lifting plan. The findings revealed six main points to improve safety in lifting operations. These are: through planning; training; equipment selection, use and inspection; feedback/communication; appointed person’s role; and database. Thorough planning of lifting operations has positive effects on safety
