Winter is finally here. After a summer of glorious sunshine, there has been a distinct chill in the air this past couple of weeks, and it's only going to get colder as November wears on and the Christmas adverts gradually take over our TV screens.

If you need to complete a job that involves lifting or moving large and heavy objects or large fragile loads, investing in a spreader/lifting beam can make a huge difference to the efficiency of the operation. Both types of beam distribute the weight of the load to make it more stable but do so in slightly different ways.
Spreader beams have lugs at either end which attach to the crane’s sling and two lugs on their underside that attach to the load. The way their lugs are orientated means the load taken by the spreader beam is mainly compressive, so they can carry a great deal of weight compared to their size.
At SafetyLiftinGear we stock a huge range of modular spreader beams that can support weights from 2 tonnes up to 70 tonnes and are adjustable in length, making them an incredibly versatile piece of equipment that can be used for a variety of different jobs.

Lifting beams are different to spreader beams because they attach to the crane from a single central point and can have several load attachment points along their base or adjustable points as shown above.
Lifting beams are more appropriate for lifting large unstable objects and can be used where low headroom is an issue. The beam is subjected to bending forces from the load and so may be large when lifting heavier loads.
Another way that these versatile lifting beams can be used, is in reverse. This entails using the underside attachments to connect a single heavy object to two cranes. This can be very useful if you need to lift an object that could not be moved using a single crane.
We supply lifting beams that are capable of lifting weights from 500 – 2000kg. They’re made of high-quality aluminium meaning they are lighter and stronger than other lifting beams. Another versatile choice. Larger units can be supplied to special order.

When operating a cherry picker, it’s important that proper safety procedures are in place and that the right safety equipment is selected so that falls and other height related accidents don’t occur.
How to control and limit the risks:
· Prepare & practice safety procedures
Ensure there are mandatory general use and emergency safety procedures in place, and that all people on site or operating the cherry picker are aware of them. It is also important that these safety procedures are practiced before the cherry picker is operated to guarantee their effectiveness in case of an emergency.
· Check weather conditions
The more windy or rainy the weather the conditions are, the more dangerous using a cherry picker becomes. High winds can cause cherry pickers to move and sway while heavy rains can make the platform incredibly slippery. An operative who has had the correct training should be able to make a sensible judgement about whether or not it is safe to use the cherry picker.
· Clear the ground below the cherry picker
People who aren’t operating the cherry picker are also at risk of being injured if tools or equipment aren’t properly secured and fall from the cherry picker. That’s why it’s important that the area around and beneath the cherry picker is properly cleared and cordoned off while the cherry picker is in use.
· Ensure you have an effective Fall Arrest System in place
Having a suitable fall arrest system in place is inevitably the most effective measure to take to prevent an operator from falling from the cherry picker. The person operating the cherry picker should wear a fall arrest system, usually consisting of; a full-body harness, a lanyard and a suitable anchor point on the cherry picker’s basket.
Here at SafetyLiftinGear, we offer a range of height safety equipment including the following Safety Harnesses that are perfect for preventing falls when using an access platform or cherry picker:
- Adjustable to fit your body
- Made of high-quality durable webbing
- Equipped with steel buckles
- Comes with rope lanyard and karabiner
