Contract lifting is normally the safest way to conduct a lifting operation using the extensive experience of M.T.C. Crane Hire to plan and organise the operation including providing all the personnel to perform the lift and producing the Risk Assessment and Method Statement to comply with Health and Safety requirements and BS7121.

The service includes the specification of the crane and lifting equipment, a berthing study to locate the crane and supervision of all aspects of the lift. Public and Employer Liability insurance is provided up to a limit of £10M in each case.

Under the standard terms of a Contract Lift the crane, equipment, operator, all personnel supplied with the crane, and insurance are the responsibility of the Crane Owner. The Owner must supply the Appointed Person or Crane Supervisor and is responsible for all aspects of the planning and execution of the lift. The Owner will be insured for the following:

  • Loss or damage to the crane or equipment caused solely by the Owner’s negligence in the performance of the lifting operations
  • Loss or damage to third party property caused by the negligence of the Owner in performing the lifting operations, subject to certain limits

Under Contract Lift conditions the Hirer still retains certain liabilities against which the Hirer should be adequately insured. These include:

  • Negligence by the Hirer
  • Inadequate or unstable ground conditions
  • Inadequate or incorrect information supplied in connection with the goods being lifted
