Yesterday, we told you all about our new Ergodyne tool lanyards; today, we'd like to show you a video that Ergodyne made to promote their products and encourage people to stay safe whilst working at height:

The video above is all about what Ergodyne call 'The Three Ts': Tethering, Topping, and Tagging. Don't worry if you haven't the time to watch the whole thing - here are The Three Ts in a nutshell:

The Three Ts of Height Safety

The following considerations are absolutely critical for anyone who works at height:

  • Tethering. This means ensuring that your tools are securely tethered, either to your person or to a secure fixing that will not allow them to fall. This is what SafetyLiftinGear's tool lanyards are for.

  • Topping. When working at height, do you carry tools, fittings, or other equipment in a work bag? If so, you need to make sure that the bag in question is properly topped; ask yourself what will stop your equipment from falling out if the bag is upturned or inverted, and if the answer is 'nothing', consider buying yourself a new, safer tool bag.

As these unfortunate watermelons found out, even small items (such as nuts and bolts) can do a lot of damage when dropped from height!

  • Tagging. The third and final 'T' refers to the proper labelling of tool lanyards and other height safety products. Such items should always be clearly marked to identify the weight capacity of the product in question - exceeding the stated weight capacity can be very dangerous, and clear tagging/labelling ensures that workers will be able check the maximum capacity of their equipment at a glance.

Summer has arrived! School's out, and if the sun comes out too, Britain's beaches are sure to be swarming with smiling families for the next six weeks or so.

If you and your family are heading to the seaside this summer, there's one accessory that you simply can't be without: a beach cart!

Beach cart

As you can see, SafetyLiftinGear's garden carts are ideal for a trip to the beach - they can be used to carry all of your gear (towels, swimming costumes, buckets, spades, etc.) to and from the sea, and their chunky, heavy-duty tyres will have no problem with the bumpy, sandy terrain!

The beach cart featured in the photos above is our Garden Dump Cart, which can carry loads of up to 300kg and costs just £51.58 (inc. VAT). Once you've bought your beach cart, it'll last for years and years - every summer outing will be easier if you keep a cart in your boot!

As we've mentioned previously, our garden carts are also perfect for festivals. Why carry your tent and camping gear on your back when you could just pop it in a cart and roll it from car park to campsite with ease?

Visit our Garden Carts department to see our full range of handy, high-endurance utility carts!


Safety barrier in use

Here at SafetyLiftinGear, we love versatile products with multiple uses, and one of the best examples from our own range is our four-panel safety barrier. With a high-visibility design and a lightweight folding frame that makes it easy to transport, this product is a superb all-purpose safety solution that can be used practically anywhere.

Here are some examples of situations in which our safety barrier might come in handy:

  • Working underground? Use our safety barrier to cordon off the entrance and prevent others from falling in or dropping items down the hole.

  • Working at height? The safety barrier can be used to prevent people from entering the area directly beneath you (where they may be at risk from falling objects).

  • Working on a road? Our safety barrier is ideal for roadwork zones - its hi-viz design will ensure that everyone sees it right away!

  • Cleaning up a spill hazard? Prevent the public from slips and falls by erecting a barrier between them and the spill while you clean it up.

Our safety barrier has the words "DANGER - NO ENTRY" printed on each panel, and multiple barriers can be connected to form a single, extra-long barrier if necessary. Click here to see more information and purchase your safety barrier now!


Bloodhound supersonic car

Remember how, back in April, we told you that SafetyLiftinGear is an official partner of The Bloodhound Project? Remember seeing the photos of our lifting equipment in action, helping to make this record-breaking supersonic car a reality? Yes?

Well, we're pleased to announce that a date has been set for Bloodhound's world debut. The car will be making its first public appearance at Newquay Aerohub on Tuesday 17 November, 2015. This event will consist of a 200mph trial - that may sound fast, but it's actually not even a quarter of the final target. Bear in mind that the Bloodhound team are aiming to eventually hit 1,000mph!

After the trial in Cornwall, Bloodhound will be fitted with air brakes and winglets before being sent to South Africa for high-speed testing (that's right - 200mph doesn't even count as 'high speed'!) in the summer of 2016. After that, it's full speed ahead - no pun intended - for a world land speed record attempt!

You can keep up with all the latest updates from Team Bloodhound at www.bloodhoundssc.com. Alternatively, why not visit our Lifting Equipment section to see some of the products that are being used to build this spectacular supercar?



If there's one quality that all height safety equipment should have, it's reliability. When you put on a safety harness or attach yourself to a fall arrest block, you're effectively entrusting your life to that bit of gear, so it's really not a good idea to skimp on quality.

With that in mind, we'd like to introduce the latest addition to SafetyLiftinGear's height safety range: Petzl Fall Protection & Rope Access Equipment! French manufacturers Petzl are among the most trusted in the industry, and the products we've sourced from them truly are the best of the best. Fall protection equipment doesn't get any more top-of-the-range than this!

Our Petzl collection is made up of many different products, including safety harnesses, headtorches, helmets, karabiners, tool bags, descenders, progress capture pulleys, and more. We also have a selection of fall protection gear for children, so if your little ones frequently engage in risky activities, you know who to call!

SafetyLiftinGear office

We at SafetyLiftinGear have been working in the lifting industry for decades, and this experience has helped us to become one of the leading suppliers of lifting equipment in the UK and beyond. Of course, there are lots of other companies to choose from when you're looking for lifting gear, but we firmly believe that SafetyLiftinGear is the best possible choice.

Here are five reasons why:

1) High Quality
Quality and reliability are crucial factors when it comes to lifting gear. You don't want a hoist or a sling that's going to let you down right in the middle of a job - who knows how much damage that could cause? We manufacture many of our products ourselves, so we can personally vouch for the quality of these items; products that are sourced from other suppliers (such as our Elephant hoists) have been chosen for their renowned, market-leading reliability, so no matter what you purchase from SafetyLiftinGear, you won't be disappointed.


2) Value for Money
We don't describe our lifting equipment as 'cheap', but our products do represent excellent value for money. SafetyLiftinGear's prices are as low as can be, and the outstanding average lifespan of our lifting gear ensures that you won't have to spend any additional money on replacements any time soon.


3) Buy Online or In Person
We like to be flexible, and so we offer our customers several different ways to buy. You can order directly from our website and pay online; you can place an order on the website and pick it up in person ('Click & Collect'); or you can just pop into one of our depots and make your purchase there.


4) Demonstration Videos
Have you seen SafetyLiftinGear's YouTube channel? We've uploaded loads of useful videos in the last couple of years, and they're all designed to help you get the most from our products. For example, if you're not sure how to use your new scaffold hoist or chain block, all you have to do is hop over to YouTube and let our staff walk you through it.


5) Ongoing Customer Support
Some companies stop caring about their customers as soon as the money's in the till. Not SafetyLiftinGear, though - we want to make sure that you're totally happy with our service, and there are loads of different ways to get in touch with our team if you need any help. You can telephone 0808 123 69 69, email sales@safetyliftingear.com, or message us on Twitter or Facebook.

Polyester webbing sling

We sell a variety of lifting slings here at SafetyLiftinGear, but our polyester webbing slings are, without a doubt, our most popular range. Today, we're going to take an in-depth look at why that is.


Polyester is the most common choice of material for lifting slings, and with good reason: it's flexible, it's lightweight, and yet it's capable of bearing exceptionally heavy loads without any difficulty whatsoever. It's also very shock-absorbent, which is good news if you don't want your goods to get damaged while they're being lifted and transported!


Our webbing slings are very cost-effective, starting from just £1.85 each (and that's including VAT!) The more heavy-duty slings are slightly dearer, of course, but no matter what kind of load you're lifting, you're guaranteed to get great value for money with our polyester slings.

Weight Capacity

Another reason for the popularity of our webbing slings is the fact that we really do have one for any task. Maximum weight capacity ranges from 1 tonne to 20 tonnes; better still, we also sell sling hooks, which are colour-coded to help you get the right hook for your webbing sling!

1 tonne webbing sling

For example, both this sling and the matching hook are capable of lifting up to 1 tonne.
