Often the best option if you:
- Don’t have experience or qualifications for organising crane lifts
- Don’t want the responsibility of planning and managing the lift on the day
- Don’t have insurance to cover contract equipment, personnel and goods being lifted
Under the terms of a CPA Contract Lift, the crane, equipment, operator and all personnel supplied with the crane are the responsibility of the crane company. The crane company is responsible for all aspects of planning and executing the lift, thus reducing risk and ensuring the lift complies fully with BS7121.
Our Appointed Persons will carry out a site survey to assess your crane requirements and will prepare a risk assessment and method statement detailing how the lift will be carried out. Where necessary, we will contact the local authority on your behalf to arrange road closure licences and we will provide all Equipment and personnel to manage and supervise the lift itself.
Our insurances cover us for £10 million public and products liability and £5 million employers liability, as well as a standard £25,000 for the goods being lifted on the hook. This amount can be increased according to the individual customers needs.
Under Contract Lift conditions, it should be noted that the customer does retain limited liabilities and should therefore hold adequate insurance to provide protection against incidents arising from, for example, their own negligence; inadequate or unstable ground conditions; inadequate or incorrect information supplied in connection with the goods being lifted.
