Lifting Operations Procedure for Permit Required Lifts

Mechanically-aided lifting tasks, including the transfer of heavy items while suspended, have clear potential for fatality, significant injury and damage or process release if the lifting equipment fails or the load falls. The hazards and risks associated with lifting tasks are commensurate with the type of lift. This procedure defines the steps required to safely and effectively conduct permit required lifts within Chicago Area Facilities (CAF). Permit required lifts involve any one or more of the following:

  • Tasks requiring a larger team and/or above-normal experience, special equipment, close coordination, etc. 
  • Contractors specializing in lifting operations are hired to conduct the specific lifting task. 
  • Tasks where any equipment failure or load damage is likely to cause a significant business impact, e.g., the item lifted was expensive and/or one-of-a-kind.

A Lifting Operations Permit with a Lift Plan is required prior to conducting all permit required lifts. The Project Manager (or designee) is responsible for the safe execution of the lift and shall consult with applicable experts as needed to ensure safe execution.

This procedure is applicable to all individuals who work at the Chicago Area Facilities (CAF), including tenants (per lease agreement), and does not pre-empt or eliminate the need for other applicable permits, procedures, policies or guides.
