Contract Lifting Solutions in Lancashire


Contract lifting remains one of the safest and most effective ways of conducting a lifting operation. AE Engineering has many years of experience – as such, our team can plan and organise the entire operation. As part of our CPA contract Lifting services, we can also provide all the personnel to carry out the lifting procedure. We will also provide the Risk Assessment and Method Statement to comply with all Health and Safety requirements and BS7121.

This service includes the specifications of the crane and associated lifting equipment. It will also include a berthing study to determine the suitability for the crane’s location and professional supervision of all aspects of the lift.

As part of our CPA Contract Lifting services, we will provide Public and Employer Liability Insurance of up to £10M in each instance.

The AE Engineering team also provides a contract lifting service in the form of a total solution. This will include the provision of equipment, operators and traffic management related to the lift.

Hire a crane

In addition to contract lifting, we are also able to provide CPA Crane Hire. If you, or your employees, have the necessary qualifications and experience, AE Engineering can hire out mobile cranes of up to 200 tonne lifting capacities. We can also provide specialised operators to ensure that your lifting procedure is a success and is carried out completely safely.

Under the conditions of CPA Crane Hire, you will be responsible for providing a Risk Assessment and Method Statement. You are in complete control of the lifting procedure and ensuring all Health and Safety guidelines are adhered to throughout the project. You will also be responsible for insuring the crane, its personnel and the public throughout the lifting operation. AE Engineering can also provide Slingers and other CPCS-qualified personnel as required.

Under the conditions of the CPA Crane Hire, we will also ask to see the Risk Assessment, Method Statement and Berthing Study results before commencing the project. This is a requirement of the Health and Safety at Work Act, Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998. If you are unable to produce these documents, we will be unable to provide you with the lifting equipment. If you don’t have a ‘Competent Person’ on-site to deal with these conditions, you should choose the CPA Contract Lift service from AE Engineering. For more information, see our Safety Guidance.
