Some important notes regarding CPA Contract Lifts

Under CPA Contract Lift conditions, the customer remains responsible for providing accurate information relating to both the items to be lifted and to the ground conditions and ensuring safe access and egress of the site.

The customer must have public liability insurance.

It is important to note that a CPA Crane Hire contract only becomes a CPA Contract Lift Hire contract when the crane owner supplies the Appointed Person and, hence, accepts responsibility for all aspects of the lift.
