The Standard Practice Atlantic Canada Offshore Petroleum Industry Safe Lifting Practices Respecting: Offshore Pedestal Cranes, Offshore Pedestal Cranes, Offshore Containers, Loose Gear, Other Lifting Devices, and Operational Best Practices was developed by a working group with representatives of Industry, the Offshore Petroleum Boards and Certifying Authorities to outline industry "best practices" for operators responsible for the management, planning and execution of offshore lifting operations and to assist in the interpretation of applicable legislation and standards. Considered within the Practice are safe design requirements, manufacture, certification, testing, maintenance and inspection requirements for pedestal cranes, offshore containers, loose gear and lifting devices. Operational best practices for lifting operations, a process for equivalencies and a gap-analysis for operators are also included.
