A) The CPA is the Construction Plant-hire Association, which represents the interests of more than 1,700 facility leasers in the UK. The CPA has been in existence since 1941. A) These have become the standard rental conditions in the equipment rental industry, which represent the obligations of the owner of the facility and the tenant (customer). These are used for business-to-business activities. A) Most facilities are leased on CPA terms for facility rentals. The facility operator works under the direction of the tenant (client) and is considered the servant of the tenant (client) during working hours. It is therefore the client`s responsibility to conduct a risk assessment at each of its sites and to establish the method statement when one of them is required. However, facility renters are required to conduct a risk assessment at their own depots, workshops and offices. We publish guidelines that provide general advice on the implementation of this risk assessment, based on HSE guidelines. Crane operations can be complex and when a tenant (whether an individual or an organization) does not have a lifting expertise, they must always apply for the “Contract Lift” option. Therefore, it is important that you arrange appropriate insurance coverage for the above-mentioned shows as soon as the investment is leased to you and you no longer rent it. Our trade association is very involved at all stages of consultation with the Health and Safety Executive (and other government agencies) to develop proposals for review of health and safety legislation.
We are in constant contact with Members of Parliament when we advise them and discuss with them their daily health and safety problems. We therefore know these problems with a unique knowledge that allows us to ensure that new legislation and guidelines do not interfere with the proper operation of equipment rentals or impose unnecessary bureaucracy. The most common form of recruitment in the UK is the CPA. But are you aware of the responsibility you assume when you hire in the factory under these conditions? Therefore, if you have any doubts about the ability to provide a competent person and control the lifting process, you should always apply for a “contractlift rental” and return the main insurance risks to the crane rental company. These provide that the landlord accepts the insurance risks mentioned above during a lifting operation, but only if he is declared as such and still does not release the tenants from his obligations to respond to requests for negligence. A) No. We work closely with a number of brokers who are familiar with the construction equipment leasing industry and the CPA model conditions. Please go to the insurance agents. A) Members who have joined the CPA have generally seen a reduction in their annual insurance premiums, with insurance companies favouring companies that hire under the standard cpa conditions. A) Our advice focuses on health and safety issues that are relevant to facility rental companies. We publish our own safety guidelines and best practice guides for the use of supervisors and managers, as well as safety guidelines for facility operators, small appliances and tools.
These publications aim to “fill in the gaps” and provide practical details to the guidelines published by the HSE and other government agencies. Our trade association works closely with a number of government-appointed organizations and organizations, including the Construction Industry Training Board (CITB), to set training and learning standards for operators, mechanics, recruitment controllers, senior managers and executives. We work with the agencies to establish training and evaluation standards for most employees in the factory leasing sector. The CPA does not conduct training itself. 1) MODEL CONDITIONS2) OTHER CONDITIONS3) HEALTH `SAFETY4)
