We plan and supervise a specific managed lifting operation.
Following a detailed site visit, our qualified Appointed Person will provide a comprehensive method statement which will include a site plan showing the position of the crane and a description of the planned lift to be undertaken. Risk assessments will be provided to you, the customer. We will select the appropriate crane for the hire, all necessary equipment, standard insurance cover and a competent crane operative.
Additionally, we contact relevant local authorities where required for road closures and parking restrictions.
During the lifting operation our Appointed Person / Crane Supervisor, Crane Operator and Slinger/Signaller work together as a team to ensure safety and success.
Under the terms of a standard CPA Crane Hire agreement, we provide a crane and a competent crane operator to work to your, the customers’ instructions. The customer’s Appointed Person is responsible for planning the lift, preparing a method statement and providing all risk assessments. The customer is also responsible for all equipment and all personnel involved.
In summary, under a CPA Hire, it is your responsibility to fully plan, control, supervise and insure the crane operation and personnel.
