Providing the best and most effective site equipment is something that we here at SafetyLiftinGear.com pride ourselves on, and when we are able to increase the amount of specialist equipment available to our customers, it is something that excites us. This is exactly what we have done with the introduction of three brand new pieces of site specialist equipment. Each one allows site workers to safely and effectively perform a number of lifting tasks for specific products found on site.
- SWL - 500KG
- Jaw Width - 170mm
- Pipe Length - 1m
- Weight - 21KG
The first of our three new pieces of site specialist equipment are Manual Balance Pipe Laying Hooks. Made from strong profiled beam construction, these pieces of lifting gear are especially useful for the lifting and transporting of concrete pipes. Available in 500-3000kg for the lifting of 1m pipes and 1000-3500kg for pipes measuring up to 3m. Suitable for a variety of lifting tasks.
- SWL - 900KG
- Opening Width – 50-520mm
- Internal Depth – 170mm
- Weight – 56KG
The second of our three new site specialist equipment are Kerb Lifters. Designed for the safe and reliable movement and placement of precast concrete elements, kerbstones and similar materials. This piece of lifting equipment has been designed for universal use, its grippers have been manufactured with a wide opening and fully automatic switching from empty to full. Available in three different sizes (900kg, 1500kg & 4000kg), no matter what weight of goods you need lifting, we are sure to have the Kerb Lifter suitable for the job!
- SWL – 4500KG
- Grab Range – 150-210mm
- Weight – 430KG
The third and final addition to our specialist site equipment is the Highway Diver Clamp. This is produced for the safe and trusty transportation of concrete protection wall sections in the new ‘New Jersey’ style. As a result of the huge pressure exerted by its mechanical tongs, the rubber-lined jaws have the ability to grip wet and soiled sections with relative safety and without leaving any damage whatsoever.
These are exciting additions to our collection of lifting equipment and will provide great lifting solutions across the construction industry. For increased flexibility, all of these lifting products are available for both purchase and hire as we understand that not everyone is able to commit to purchasing as a result of financial and practical reasons. If you are interested in renting or buying any of these pieces of lifting equipment, simply visit the product page of your desired product and click the ‘Hire Me’ or ‘Buy Me’ option. After this, follow the on-screen instructions until your purchase or rental enquiry is complete.

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:
