STANDARD TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR A CONTRACT FOR THE LIFTING AND MOVEMENT OF GOODS INVOLVING CRANE OPERATION 1 ) SCOPE AND DEFINITIONS 1.1. The terms and conditions set out in this document describe the trading policy and practise of the Company for it’s ‘lifting contract’ services, as distinct from it’s crane-hire services, and they form the contract terms and conditions for lifting contracts entered into by the company. 1.2. ‘Lifting contract’ means a contract for the supply and operation of a crane or cranes together with the planning, supervision and execution of the lifting operation, which is the type of contract which these terms and conditions are intended to regulate. They are not intended or designed to regulate contracts involving other specialist skills such as mechanical erection contracts. 1.3. These terms and conditions shall not be varied except with the company’s express written agreement, signed by a person authorised thereto by the company. 1.4. No other terms and conditions shall apply to any lifting contract entered into by the company unless expressly agreed in writing by means of a quotation or otherwise by the company and the client. In particular, any terms and conditions specified by the client on an order form or otherwise, shall not be binding on the company and shall not apply to any lifting contract entered into by the company unless previously agreed in writing by the company. 1.5. Unless otherwise agreed by the company and the client, these terms and conditions also apply to any additional work that the company may agree to carry out for the client and which arises from or is connected with a lifting contract. 1.6. The following words and phrases used in this document have the meanings indicated: “Person Appointed” means the person given the authority to assess, plan and organise the work; to select suitable or appropriate plant and equipment, ensuring it has been adequately inspected and maintained; to provide instruction and supervision for the work to be undertaken safely; and to stop the work whenever he considers danger is likely to arise if it were to be continued. “Client” means the person or organisation requiring the lift to be carried out, and includes the Client’s employees and agents and the Client’s assignees, successors and personal representatives. “Code of Practice” means the British Standard Code of Practice for the Safe Use of Cranes ( BS 7121, part 1: 1989 ), as amended from time to time, or any other official Code of Practice which may supersede it. “Company” means the company or firm agreeing to carry out the contract lift, and includes the Company’s assignees, successors and personal representatives. “Contract Equipment” means any crane and other equipment and accessories used or intended to be used by the Company in performing, or in connection with, the contract lift. “Contract Price” means the price agreed by the Company and the Client as payment for the performance by the Company of the lifting contract, which may be a lump-sum price or a time-related schedule of rates. “Lift” should be interpreted as meaning either ‘lift’ or ‘move’. 2 ) QUOTATIONS AND CONTRACT PRICE 2.1. Unless otherwise specified by the Company in writing, every quotation by the Company is open for acceptance for a period of thirty days, after which the quotation will be subject to re-confirmation by the Company. 2.2. Unless otherwise specifically noted by the Company in writing, every quotation by the Company is based on the assumption that the following circumstances apply: 2.2.1. That the work will be carried out under the Company’s direction without interruption and on a clear site with adequate approaches suitable for the necessary movement of the contract equipment. 2.2.2. The ground or floor where the contract equipment is to operate will be firm, level and in good condition, and will provide proper support for the contract equipment. 2.2.3.

The contract price may be increased by the amount of any costs incurred by the Company as a result of delays in commencing or completing the contract work due to circumstances beyond the Company’s control. 3 ) FORMATION AND TERMINATION OF LIFTING CONTRACT 3.1. The submission of a quotation by the Company to a prospective customer does not constitute an offer, the acceptance of which will create a binding contract. 3.2. No lifting contract is created before the Company accepts an order for the carrying out of the lifting contract work. 3.3. If, before completion of the lifting contract, the Client purports to cancel the contract without the writted agreement of the Company, the Client shall be liable for the full contract price. If the Company has agreed in writing to the cancellation, the Client shall be liable for such reasonable proportion of the contract price as may be assessed by the Company at that time, together with all costs and charges incurred by the Company or to which the Company is committed. 3.4. A lifting contract involving an unspecified number of lifts over a period of indeterminate duration may be terminated by either party giving the other party not less than seven days’ notice in writing, or such other notice as may be mutually agreed by the parties. 4 ) STATUS AND AUTHORITY OF CLIENT AND COMPANY 4.1. The Client warrants that the Client is the owner or the authorised agent of the owner of the contract goods and is authorised to accept and does accept these contract terms and conditions. 4.2. The Client requires and authorises the Company to assume overall control of the work, to provide the person appointed and to plan, supervise, carry out and complete the work in accordance with the Code of Practice including, where considered by the Company to be appropriate, to control and instruct the Client’s personnel involved in the work. 4.3. The Client authorises the Company to have free access to, and free movement on, the contract site and to clear the site of all vehicles and persons not directly involved in the contract lift and, for that purpose, to set up barricades, tapes or cones, to the extent that the Company may at it’s discretion require for the performance of the contract. 4.4. With the permission of the Client, which shall not be unreasonably witheld, the Company may arrange for the work, or any part of the work, to be carried out by agents, sub- contractors or independent contractors. For the purposes of the contract, any such third parties shall be regarded as de facto representatives or employees of the Company. As such, they shall have the same rights against and duties and liabilities to the Client as the Company itself under these Contract Terms and Conditions. 5 ) CODE OF PRACTICE 5.1. The Company will perform the lifting contract in accordance with the Code of Practice. 5.2.

The Company shall be liable for injury to persons or for loss or damage to property when caused solely and demonstrably by the Company’s negligence in the performance of the lifting contract.

These limitations shall be deemed to apply unless in either case a different amount is mutually agreed by the Company and the Client prior to the commencement of the contract. 6.3. Full details of any loss, damage or injury which is or may be the subject of a claim by the Client against the Company shall be notified by the Client to the Company within seven days of the date of discovery thereof.

If the value of the contract goods exceeds the limit referred to in Clause 6 ( ‘Liability of Company’ ), it is the responsibility of the Client to give the Company sufficient written notice of that fact with details of the full value of the contract goods so that full insurance cover in the joint names of the Company and the Client may be arranged, at the Client’s expense, before the commencement of the performance of the lifting contract. 8.4.

Any claim arising from or connected with the Company’s work on the lifting contract site, in preparing the site or performing the contract, including claims of nuisance and claims of trespass to persons, property, land or air space. 8.4.2.

The Company is not a common carrier. 9.2.

In the latter event, unless otherwise agreed in writing by the Company, the Company’s liability for the contract goods so transported shall be no greater than that of the person or organisation carrying out the transportation, i.e. the airline, shipping company, haulage contractors or railway authority concerned. The amount of compensation, if any, payable for loss or damage to the contract goods during transportation shall be limited to the amount recoverable from the relevant person or organisation in respect of that loss or damage. 10 ) PAYMENT OF CHARGES 10.1.
