What is the role of the Appointed Person

The Appointed Person (AP) is responsible for the planning of the lifting operations from its conception to the completion.

Whist the AP does not have to be present on site, their lift plan takes responsibility of the lift from when the crane arrives at the site entrance, for its passage through the site to the “setting up”  position, for the crane set up itself, for the lift, for the crane dismantling and for its egress from the site.

Complying with all relevant Acts and Regulations, Approved Codes Of Practice and for producing the necessary risk assessments and method statements

The AP can delegate designated tasks to suitable competent personnel but cannot delegate responsibility.
