A Grove 90 Ton crane repair was performed using an incorrect welding rod material. The organization performing the work did not adequately implement the work management process to apply the correct quality levels, leading to the improper selection of weld rod. Quick action and the questioning attitude of a mechanic/welder prevented the crane from potential use in a non-compliant condition. Lessons Learned: Personnel must be familiar with, and understand the importance of, how to correctly apply the Work Management process and procedures, so that the right level of planning occurs, and the correct quality levels are applied to self-performed work/repairs on critical/structural components.
