  • Guidelines For Approval Of Hoisting Machine Design

    Preamble

    Every hoisting machine which is power driven by electricity, diesel, pneumatic and other means for lifting, raising or lowering load except manual hoist and material handling equipment shall possess a valid Certificate of Fitness. The design of every hoisting machine must be appraised by Design Section of the Department of Occupational Safety and Health before the machine is been fabricated, installed and used.

    Hoisting Machine Categories
    There are four categories of hoisting machine under this guideline:

    Category Description
    A

    Hoisting machine which is designed, customized and fabricated according to the user’s needs and specification
    B Mass produced hoisting machine
    C

    Amusement park ride and other type of hoisting machine which is not under category A, B & D
    D

    Hoisting machine usually used at offshore and construction site

    The list of type of hoisting machine in each of those categories can be found in Appendix 2

    Fabrication of Hoisting Machine

    All hoisting machine made locally must be fabricated by a Competent Firm registered with the Department of Occupational Safety and Health

    Model Re-Confirmation for Mobile Crane, Crawler Crane, Truck Mounted Crane, Injection Type Piling Machine, Auger Crane and Mobile Elevating Work Platform

    The approval of these type of machine is based on model. Applicant may write in officially or apply online through SKUD system for inquiry on whether the said model had been approved.

    Change of Hoist of the Same Model (for OTC and Monorail only)

    When there is a change of new unit of hoist of the same maker and model of the existing approved OTC and monorail design, there is no requirement to resubmit another design approval. Owner is to notify the change of the said hoist to DOSH State Office.

    Change of Hoist of a Different Model (for OTC and Monorail only)

    When there is a change of new unit of hoist of same or lower safe working load (regardless of the model and manufacturer of the hoist) than the existing approved assigned safe working load for the crane system, a new submission for design approval is not required with the condition the approved safe working load also been lowered to the hoist capacity. Owner is to notify the change of the said hoist to DOSH State Office.

    Hoist More Than 5 Years (for OTC and Monorail only)

    If the hoist intended to be used is more than 5 years after its fabrication date, the competent firm should carry out an integrity test and re-certify the hoist before submitting the design approval.

    Exemption

    Design approval is not required for monorail crane with safe working load of 4 tons and below only, provided that the girder is of I or H beam of standard properties. However, this type of monorail crane still requires a basic engineering drawing and calculation which are endorsed by a local Professional Engineer before registering with DOSH State office.

    In addition, the following hoisting machines are exempted from obtaining design approval and certificate of fitness:-
    1. Boring rig
    2. Drilling rig
    3. Piling machine mounted on crawler track only
    4. Winch for towing vehicle only
    5. Dock leveler
    6. Manipulator
    7. Gangway tower
    8. Vertical conveyor
    9. Tail lift
    10. Automatic Storage and Retrieval System (ASRS)
    11. Monkey hoist with maximum lifting load of 80kg and maximum lifting height of 9m only
    12. Air or pneumatic hoist with safe working load of 500kg and below only

    Re-Engineering

    All re-engineered machine must be re-evaluated, re-drawn and re-calculate by a competent firm registered with the Department of Occupational Safety and Health in the scope of the said hoisting machine. Applicant is to clearly state in the official application letter for design approval that it is a re-engineered hoisting machine.

    Modification

    Any modification to the existing approved design will cause the current Certificate of Fitness to be revoked and the modified design shall be re-submitted for appraisal. Modification can only be carried out by registered competent firm in the scope of the said hoisting machine or the original manufacturer. Applicant is to clearly state in the official application letter for design approval that the said hoisting machine has been modified.

    Special Assessment Report

    For mobile and crawler crane which are more than 10 years old, a special assessment is to be carried out by Inspecting Authority in accordance to ISO 12482-1.

    Erection, Maintenance and Dismantling

    Certain machinery such as tower crane, passenger hoist, mast climbing work platform and gondola (suspended platform) required to be erected by a competent firm registered with the Department of Occupational Safety and Health.

    Such appointment letter shall be attached with the submission should the applicant is other than the competent firm.

    Crane/Hoist Lifted Work Platform

    Hoisting machine which is not designed to carry worker/human is not allowed to suspend the worker/human on a working platform from a crane/hoist to perform any work. Unless there is a strong justification for it, please contact the hoisting machine unit officer for more details on the application.

  • Introduction To Unfired Pressure Vessels

    Under the Factories and Machinery Act 1967, each unfired pressure vessel must have a valid certificate of fitness (CF) before it can be operated. For this purpose, approval for the design of the unfired pressure vessel has to be obtained in advance from the Department of Occupational Safety and Health (DOSH) before it fabricated, installed or used.

    Application for approval of the design may be made by the manufacturing company, installer, supplier or owner of the unfired pressure vessel. Local manufacturers of unfired pressure vessels must register as a manufacturer with the department.

    The following are several examples of unfired pressure vessels that require design approval:
    • Air container
    • Steriliser
    • LPG storage tank
    • Heat Exchanger
    • Pressure vessels at the petrochemical plants etc

  • Introduction to Steam Boiler and Fired Pressure Vessel

    Each steam boiler and fired pressure vessel installed and operate in this country shall have a valid certificate of fitness (CF). Hence, the steam boiler and fired pressure vessel shall first obtain design approval from the Department of Occupational Safety and Health, Headquarters before fabrication, installation or operation.

    The interpretation of "steam boiler" and “fired pressure vessel” under Act 139, Factories and Machinery Act, 1967, Section 3:

    "steam boiler" means any closed vessel in which for any purpose steam is generated under pressure greater than atmospheric pressure, and includes any économiser used to heat water being fed to the vessel, and any superheater used for heating surface, and any pipes and fittings connected thereto ".

    "fired pressure vessel" means an enclosed vessel under pressure greater than atmospheric pressure which is subjected to direct firing, but does not include a steam boiler


    The following are several examples of steam boiler and fired pressure vessel which must be registered:

     1.     Autoclave
     2.     Electric Steam Boiler
     3.     Water Tube Steam Boiler
     4.     Fire Tube Steam Boiler
     5.     Recovery Steam Generator (HRSG)
     6.     Hot Water Boiler
     7.     Thermal Oil Heater

    The following is the information needed for approval of the steam boiler design:

    Application for design approval and modification of Steam Boiler / Fired Pressure Vessel

  • Aim

    This procedure aims to explain the application to carry out hydrostatic or operating test which is witnessed by a DOSH officer.

    Procedure
    1. The steam boiler or pressure vessel to be tested has obtained design approval (new machinery) or repair approval (registered machinery).
    2. Submit application letter to carry out the test on the machinery to the State DOSH Office where the test will be carried out.
    3. Contact DOSH office to set a test date not later than one week from the date of the test.
    4. Submit information on the machinery such as copy of letter of approval, manufacturer's data report, welder record and other related information to DOSH officer before the test is carried out.
