The role of the appointed person, as defined by BS7121 part 1, is to provide a safe system of work for all lifting operations which are properly planned and adequately supervised. This includes the preparation of a comprehensive risk assessment and an adequate method statement. As well as selecting the correct crane for the lift the Appointed Person must also select the appropriate load handling accessories, the method of attaching the load to the crane and calculate the down rating of the accessories where necessary to ensure a safe operation.
The crane supervisor should direct and supervise the lifting operation, ensuring that these are carried out in accordance with the method statement. The crane supervisor should be competent and suitably trained and should have sufficient authority to stop the lifting operation if the supervisor considers it dangerous to proceed.
