Crane Lifting Operations - Signalling

Where the load is not clearly visible or the hook of the crane or lifting appliance is not clearly visible to the operator, a signaller (banksman) must be used to transmit the slingers instructions to the operator.

All signals must be clear and concise and should, if they are visual signals, conform to the recognised code of manual signals.

The operator must take notice of only the signals of the person appointed, however, he must obey a signal for "emergency stop" if it is given by any person employed on site.
