Excerpt: ... MSS. MSS also did not properly classify critical lifts or follow NASA or MSS procedures when those lifts met the NSS / GO critical lift requirements. For example, on November 2, 2000, an operator lifted workers on the B-Test Stand using a mobile crane with an attached personnel basket. Although NSS / GO-1740.9B and MSS S a MA instructions require contractors to perform personnel lifts using critical lift procedures, MSS did not properly classify the lift as critical. MSS also did not prepare specific written lift procedures or require monitoring of lifts by NASA or contractor safety personnel. Although MSS was aware of the NASA requirements and had established internal procedures, it did not properly classify or perform personnel lifts. Boeing. Boeing did not follow required safety procedures for its critical lifts. From September 1, 2000, through February 28, 2001, Boeing classified 26 Space Shuttle main 13 engines and / or engine component lifts as critical and used a qualified move director or 14 move conductor when transporting and lifting engines or engine components. The NSS / GO requires that designated safety representatives be present during critical lifts or that the contractor receives NASA approval, in the form of a waiver, for an exception to this practice. Generally, neither NASA nor Boeing safety personnel were present for these lifts. Further, the move directors and conductors were not safety representatives, although they had received safety-related training. Boeing also had not submitted a waiver to obtain the Agency's approval for deviation of the requirement to have safety representatives present. Consequently, NASA had no assurance that Boeing accomplished the engine lifts in the safest possi...Original publisher: Washington, DC: National Aeronautics and Space Administration, Office of Inspector General,  OCLC Number: (OCoLC)645094624 Subject: Astronautics -- United States -- Equipment and supplies -- Safety measures.
