A safety harness is a system of restraints that prevent the wearer from falling from a height. By wearing the belt or harness the risk of injury from a fall is greatly reduced.
The harness allows the user to attach themselves to a stationary object, therefore ensuring they will not hit the ground in the event of a fall. Falling from a height is one of the most common causes of personal injury in the workplace, so it is very important to make sure you are properly equipped when working up high.

Why is a safety harness important?

High quality fall restraints such as the ones we supply give you the reassurance that you are taking all the necessary precautions to protect yourself within a hazardous work situation. We provide a diverse range of harnesses and other fall restraint products so that whatever job you are undertaking we have something that best fit your needs.
A safety harness not only improves the wearer’s protection but also allows them to use their hands freely whilst working. This practical piece of equipment is vital for anyone working in construction as it can be a life-saving form of protection. You can browse our full range of safety harnesses here

A Lever Hoist is a piece of high-quality equipment used to lift and lower heavy loads without the aid of machinery. Lever Hoists have the ability to lift items in most positions, including horizontally. Different from the Chain Block or Hoist, which can only lift items vertically, the Lever Hoist's ability to lift items horizontally is a great benefit. 

A Level Hoist is usually fitted with a heavy-duty safety cap to hold your items comfortably and a top swivel connection which will allow easy lifting from all angles. The hand wheel can then be turned to release or retract as much chain length as required. The ratchet lever attached to the side of the lever hoist allows the chain to be free-willed when placed in the neutral position. When placed in the up position, it tightens the chain allowing the load to be lifted with the tension. 

Finally, to lift the load, crank the heavy-duty lever until your load has reached a suitable height. To lower the load, the ratchet lever must be switched to the downward position and the heavy-duty lever cranked to lower the chain.

Here's a video from one of our experts on how to use one of our 750KG Industrial Quality Lever Hoists:

Here at SafetyLiftinGear, our range of Lever Hoists can lift from 750kg up to 6000kg. They're also available to hire if you only need to use a lever hoist for a short period of time. To hire one of our lever hoists, simply click 'hire me' on the product page and then 'enquire' once you get to the checkout. One of our team will then get in touch to provide you with a quote for hiring a lever hoist. 

If you'd like any more information about lever hoists or how you can hire one, just get in touch with us today or call us on 0808 123 69 69. 

Hinkley Point Fence Test

Did you know that we provide onsite testing services for clients in a range of different industries? It's true - earlier this month, for example, we visited Hinkley Point to test the strength of the fencing around the power station.

We carried out a personnel test (pictured above) and a wind test (below) using a calibrated load cell and our own round slings and lever hoists.

And that's just one job. The team from our Bristol service centre also paid a visit to Bristol Airport last week, where they carried out onsite testing on a handrail.

Onsite testing for handrail at Bristol airport

As requested by a contractor, the handrail's resin anchored fixings were tested up to a force of 1.5kN. Strength tests like this are important to ensure the safety of fixtures in what is one of England's busiest international airports.

Contact us now to request an onsite testing quote - we can provide a professional solution for all sorts of different requirements!
