Slings
 Synthetic Slings
 Synthetic slings (e.g. nylon web, poly-round, fiber rope) may only be used where:
 • there is no practicable alternative, and
 • wire rope could crush or damage unprotected loads (e.g. piping or equipment with specialized coatings, rotating components from machinery,
 fragile equipment, etc.).
 During rare occasions where a synthetic sling is exposed to a dynamic/offboard lift, the lift must:
 • be considered a critical lift and thus subject to additional requirements for job planning and operating practice, and
 • use slings with a working load rating that is double the load being lifted (e.g. a five-ton straight lift requires a sling with a 10-ton working load
 rating).
 Synthetic slings must not be used when exposed to:
 • sharp edges or rough surfaces,
 • temperatures exceeding 194°F, and
 • chemicals,
 or the load may rotate in the sling.

 Chain Slings
 Chain slings will be used only under the following circumstances:
 • During onshore rig moves
 • When approved for use by the SEPCo/Contract supervisor
 • When rated and certified for the intended use

 Stingers Refer to Offshore Pedestal Crane/Mobile Crane Operational Requirements.

 Spreader Bars and Special Lifting Devices
 Spreader bars and special lifting devices are fabricated steel structures typically used to ensure that rigging connected
 between the bar/frame and the load is vertical. Unlike a spreader bar, special lifting devices are engineered for specific
 lifting applications.
 The QP shall be instructed in the use of the device by a designated person.
 Instructions should include, but are not limited to the following:
 • Application of the lifter to the load and adjustments, if any, that adapt the lifter to various sizes or kinds of loads
 • Instructions for any special operations or precautions
 • The manufacturer’s recommended operating procedures
 • Store the lifter to protect it from damage
 • Do not exceed the rated capacity of the lifter

 Plate Clamps
 The use of plate clamps is restricted to situations where the plate is:
 • being removed from a racking system, or
 • being moved a short distance with the lift maintained just above the deck/ground.
 Universal plate clamps can lift a plate from horizontal to vertical and vice versa but must not be used to transport plates
 horizontally.

 • Verify the sling has current certification.
 Notes:
 • Any sling without a certification tag must be removed from service and recorded in the inventory. The sling must be re-certified prior to use.
 • Slings must be removed from service if any inadequacy is found.

 Periodic Inspection
 Synthetic slings are required to:
 • be replaced annually and have a certificate of conformity available upon request from the sling owner, indicating that the sling is not greater than one year old,
 • be logged in the location’s sling inventory,
 • be stored in a enclosed area (e.g. rigging/store and contractors toolhouse/box) to minimize exposure to moisture, UV rays, and chemicals,
 • have a legible tag marked with the working load and certification and manufacture date, and
 • be inspected by a Qualified Rigger to ensure the following do not exist:
 • cuts, tears, or abrasion,
 • fraying or bursting of stitching,
 • penetration of foreign bodies (e.g. sand, metal, glass, etc.) into the fibers,
 • damage from heat or chemicals, and
 • distortion or excessive wear of the metal eyes, where fitted.
 Any of the above conditions require the sling to be removed from service and discarded using the sling Discard Procedure.

 Competency Matrix and Training Course Details
 Course Curricula
 Individual training course curricula will be available separately and posted on the SEPCo HSE Controlled Document
 Livelink site and the Contractor Safety Management Process’ “HSE Standards / Procedures / Guidelines” web page.



 SEPCo- Accepted Contractor Training Courses
 Contractors may develop their own training courses to meet the competency and training requirements of this document. For
 a contractor’s training to be accepted by SEPCo, the contractor must:
 • show a business need,
 • meet the course curricula requirements of the OPS0055 Lifting and Hoisting Training curricula,
 • have the course approved as “SEPCo-Accepted” by the custodian of OPS0055 Lifting and Hoisting Standard (i.e. SEPCo’s
 Technical Authority for Lifting and Hoisting), and
 • agree to submit all training records to SEPCo’s Training Database for tracking purposes.
 Note: Contact Shell’s Robert Training and Conference Center for details on SEPCo’s Training Database at 504-728-1200 or
 985-543-1200.

 LLFP will only have to verify that trained personnel are in TRNDB for compliance with OPS0055 REV 1.0
 If personnel are not in TRNDB then they are not in compliance and therefore will not be allowed to perform
 lifting and hoisting operations.

Competency Assessor Test
Testing sequence for Crane Operators

1. Written test-- Give them the question test and then verify that the answers are correct. Operator can only miss 5
     questions. If they miss more than 5 they need to go back and study the standard OPS0055 and retake the test. If they
     miss less than 4 just go over the ones that they missed.

2. Pre-use Inspection-- Watch the Operator perform the pre-use inspection and grade them on the assessment sheet.
     Then go over the pre-use inspection with the Operator and discussed any missed items., If the Operator missed anything
     on the first pre-use inspection, there will need to be another pre-use inspection assessment performed.

3.   Next they will go operate the Crane and you will need to periodically assess them as they perform the
     operation of the Crane. Depending on their progression level you will need to supervise their lifts.
