  9 Planning of lifting operations
          Is the following considered during lifting operations planning

               Estimation of load weights
               Size of the load
               Method of lifting
               Center of gravity (COG)
               Selection and availability of suitable lifting equipment
               Position of obstacles and hazardous zones, e.g. live plant
               Communication system
