Here at SafetyLiftinGear, we are constantly improving our lines to ensure that they constantly complement each other. We currently supply a wide range of lever hoists, electric hoists, chain hoists, and material lifting equipment to various companies around the UK. Our range of Girder clamps complement these large product lines.
Girder clamps are used when you may require a temporary or semi- permanent hoist anchor point, for overhead lifting or various vertical rigging applications. These diverse girder clamps can also provide solutions for holding and positioning girders whilst being used in construction, as a below the hook device. SafetyLiftinGear’s fully adjustable girder clamps feature a pivoting eye, to attach a hoist with ease, a special clamp jaw design which applies the load away from the flange edge, reducing the stress imposed on the girder flange. You can adjust our girder clamps to fit most Girders by simply by turning the central threaded bar.
Our Girder clamps are extremely robust and are designed to withstand the day to day stress of construction site environments. Before use, make sure you have thoroughly inspected your girder clamps for any damage, if there is any evidence of damage, do not use. Furthermore, you will need to ensure that the supporting structure is adequate for the load that will be imposed as well as making sure that you have selected a girder clamp with the correct working load limit. Working Load Limit is the maximum weight capacity that your Girder clamps can withstand. Overloading your girder clap can cause the clamp to break, and could end up damaging your load, or causing an injury. We clearly state the Working Load limit of our clamps on the product page. Please ensure that when you are purchasing a clamp from Safetyliftingear you have selected the correct clamp for the job.

A construction firm has been fined after a worker fell 2.5m head first and sustained serious injuries. The hearing at Taunton Magistrates Court revealed that the employee was working at height on a construction site, when the formwork panels he was installing “gave way” and he fell head first over a ledge.
An investigation conducted by the Health and Safety Executive found that there had been a lack of planning for the height work, and the construction firm were using an unsafe method of installing the formwork.
The company was fined £13,000 and ordered to pay cost of £3,742.18 after pleading guilty to failing to comply with the Work at height regulations 2005.
Working at Height
Working at height is dangerous work. The law requires anybody who is planning to work at height, be it employers or the self-employed organise a plan so that the work is carried out in a safe manner.
If you can avoid working at height, do! It is important not to put yourself, or others in a working situation that they could injure themselves unless it’s unavoidable or absolutely necessary. Conduct the appropriate risk assessments, and make sure all your staff are fully trained, and briefed on the safety precautions.
If you find yourself having to work at height, make sure you are protecting yourself from potential injury at all costs. Over 60% of fatalities during working at height are a result of falls, either from ladders, scaffolding, platforms, roof edges, and fragile roofs make sure you are using Fall Arrest Block, safety harnesses, Lanyards, safety lines and roof anchors as required. If you do not have access to this equipment do not undergo the work.
Before undergoing any height work make sure that all the equipment that you will be using has been inspected thoroughly for any damage. If you do come across any damage do not use, and postpone any work at height until the equipment has been replaced.
