CPA Contract Lift

We recommend that customers who are not experienced in hiring cranes and therefore are not aware of the responsibilities, duties and risks take advantage of our CPA Contract Lift service. Specifying the correct contract will improve safety and ensure the the correct system of work is adopted.

Under the terms of a standard CPA Contract Lift, the crane / equipment, operator and all personnel supplied with the crane, (including the Appointed Person) are the responsibility of the crane owner.

Under CPA Contract Lift Conditions of Hire, Bernard Hunter Mobile Cranes would provide the necessary Appointed Person, competent Slingers, Method Statement / Lifting Plan, Risk Assessment and adequate insurance for the lifting operation.

Bernard Hunter Mobile Cranes is responsible for all aspects of the planning and execution of the lift and will provide insurance cover for the following:

  1. Loss of or damage to plant / equipment caused solely by the owner's negligence in the performance of the lifting contract;
  2. Loss of or damage to third party property caused solely by the owner's negligence in the performance of the lifting contract subject to:
    - A maximum liability of ₤10,000 in respect of goods being lifted;
    - A maximum liability of ₤2 million in respect of loss of or damage to third party property or death / injury to third party persons.
    (These limits can be increased on request and additional premiums will be charged accordingly).

It is important to note that a CPA Crane Hire agreement only becomes a CPA Contract Lift when Bernard Hunter Mobile Cranes supplies the Appointed Person / Crane Supervisor and hence, accepts liability for planning and supervising the lift.

Under Contract Lift terms and conditions, the customer remains responsible for providing accurate information relating to the lift and must have Public Liability insurance cover.
