Height Safety Equipment

If you work from any height whether it is 2 metres or 20 metres above ground you are likely to need some safety gear. Below you will find products from the market leader in safety equipment - Kratos. We can, however also supply equipment from other leading brands such as Tractel and Ridgegear. Check out their respective shop by brand pages if you require these brands.

About Height Safety

Statistics in the United Kingdom show that over 1 million people are injured or even worse at their workplace, many injuries are caused by falls from heights. We know that to work from any height is potentially risky, and is where many work-related accidents occur; so using the correct safety equipment is vital.

Personal protection equipment (PPE regulations) for safety at heights will have 3 components, a body holding device – i.e. a safety harness; a fall prevention linkage i.e. a karabiner and an anchorage system i.e. a lanyard.

Safety Lifting Gear for Working at Heights

Specialises safety lifting gear for working at heights can be used for different scenarios; for work station prevention or restraint, this is to stop the worker from reaching an area where they could potentially fall. The work positioning scenario allows the worker to move around more freely but if there is a potential to fall then a fall arrest system should be used.

Fall arrest equipment such as fall arrest blocks are designed to absorb energy and hold its wearer stable until help arrives, whilst reducing the dangerous stresses imposed on the body to a minimum.

When working in confined areas an anchorage such as a tripod will be used alongside a harness, lanyard, and potentially a fall arrestor and winch.

You should consider your task carefully and carry out risk assessments. Then decide whether you need a fall prevention set up to stop the worker from falling altogether or a fall restraint system to provide more freedom of movement but catch the worker should a fall occur.

Safety Harness and Lanyard kits

Why buy individual safety accessories when you can order entire height safety kits from us?

Kits can include body harnesses, lanyards, hooks, karabiners, and a range of accessories that vary depending on the intended use. Many include carrying cases to prevent wear and tear during transport and storage.

For your convenience we supply some of our working at height equipment in specifically designed kits, providing all you need for a particular task. For example a scaffolders kits, workers restraint kit or a hi-viz kit.

As safety is such a high priority on the agenda, Lifting Gear Direct only supply safety equipment from reputable, top brand names to ensure quality and safety each and every time; Kratos height safety products are reliable and readily available and we can supply safety harness and lanyard kits at affordable, cost-effective prices direct to you. You can also find safety harness and lanyard kits from Ridgegear in our shop by brand section.

Body Harness

A body harness or safety harness is an essential piece of safety equipment for when working from potentially hazardous heights come in a wide range of designs to suit various working scenarios and body comfort.

You can purchase an individual full body harnesses instead of a complete kit if you require it. Our range includes a rescue harness, high viz harness, and single, 2, or 3 point full-body harnesses. Providing full-body support to workers, safety harnesses are strong, durable, and built to withstand challenging conditions both indoors and out.

Most of our safety harnesses are made using materials like polyester which are not just strong enough to handle heavy weights but also able to remain uncompromised by moisture.

Safety harnesses that offer adjustability will allow different body shapes and sizes to be accommodated. Meanwhile, integrated padding in some premium harnesses allows for improved comfort, with brands like Kratos, Tractel and Ridgegear represented in this category.

One final noteworthy feature that a safety harness can offer is integrated high-visibility elements. This will make wearers conspicuous even in darker environments, delivering great all-round safety.

If you have any other particular requirements then contact us, we can usually help with your needs.

Safety Harness Lanyards

Safety harness lanyards play an important role in most height safety operations. They provide a means of anchorage between the harness and wearer and a safe, secure anchor point. Lanyards are also used to prevent the user from reaching a point where a fall is likely.

We offer a range of shock absorbing lanyards in either kernmantle rope or webbing with a range of fittings; these are great for reducing impact. We also offer a range of work positioning and restraint lanyards which are great for helping you stay put whilst carrying out your task. Fall arrest lanyards with shock absorbing properties are also available at Lifting Gear Direct.

Our Key height safety equipment Brand Kratos make restraint lanyards, with some featuring a standard strip of webbing to support the wearer, while others come with expandable sections intended to improve freedom of movement while also serving as a shock absorber.

Safety lanyards can also be chosen with different end terminals included, such as snap hooks and karabiners.

Fall Arresters

Our range of fall arrest equipment includes a number of fall arrest blocks and fall arrest lanyards for you to choose from. Fall arrest blocks are all retractable for easier use and made from high-quality components. The Olympe range from Kratos are popular with our customers and the range includes retractable fall arrest blocks with webbing or wire rope and are typically fitted with a karabiner anchor and a swivel snap-hook at the attachment end, these generally incorporate a load indicator for additional safety. Ridgegear fall arrester equipment is also available under shop by brand. Get in touch if you need help with choosing the right fall arrester.

Safety Harness Connectors

Connections are frequently required during tasks undertaken when working at height. Whether they are needed on your harness or lanyard we have a range of connectors and hooks for you to pick from. Included in our collection are some locking karabiners, snap hooks, and quick delta links, browse the full range to see more details.

In most cases, a karabiner, carabiner or biner as they may be referred to as will form an important link between a safety harness and a safety lanyard, with a screw locking mechanism meaning that once they are in place, they will be almost impossible to dislodge accidentally.

Karabiners come in different sizes, shapes, colours, and materials. Lightweight alloy karabiners are cost-effective and popular. Steel karabiners are sturdy and virtually indestructible in normal use. There are several different locking mechanisms to consider and various brands to weigh up when you choose.

Safety hooks can perform similarly to karabiners but tend to have a snap mechanism to allow for quick attaching and detaching from a harness or anchor point. Snap hooks of this kind can actually mirror karabiners by offering a locking mechanism that is screwed to tighten and form a stronghold. Others come with single or double trigger assemblies which can be a boon in scenarios where regular connections are essential and time is of the essence.

Quick links and Delta links offer other types of safety connections and incorporate screw lock openings.

Stock up on karabiners to add to existing safety equipment or use in a range of other applications.

What is Height Safety Anchorage Equipment?

Anchorage used for height safety typically includes equipment to which you attach yourself to. These are often used when other secure anchor points are awkward or non-existent, often on-site. We offer the popular tripod from Kratos which is great for descending into confined spaces. Thanks to its telescopic legs it is easy to store and set up and can be used with a special foothold attachment and a rescue winch.

Atex Rated Height Safety Equipment

Now available from Lifting Gear Direct is the latest range of ATEX rated height safety equipment. This comes from the Kratos Atex Free Blast range and includes full-body harnesses, lanyards, karabiners. These are ideal in hazardous work environments which have potentially explosive atmospheres.

Safety Access Platforms

Reducing the risks that come with working at height is a breeze with safety access platforms and safety cages supplied by Lifting Gear Direct. Our range includes safety access platforms that can be fitted to a forklift truck or crane slung. These platforms provide a safer option to ladders for maintenance tasks carried out at certain heights or safe access to higher levels.

Understanding Working at Height Fall Factors

height safety fall calculations

Below is the calculation you should use to determine the lowest possible fall distance between the lanyard's anchor point and the ground or lower levels.

This is calculated by allowing for: Twice the lanyard's total length (to allow for the length of the lanyard and the height of the worker) add 1.75m deceleration distance to permit any elongation occurring to the shock absorber and any slack in the lanyard. +1 Meter safety margin TOTAL = 6.75 metre clearance required using a 2 metre lanyard.

Working at Height Safety

Working at height regulations have become law in recent years, so it is more important than ever to understand the regulations, the law and how they affect you.

The main points of the regulations are:

Working at a height no longer means above 2 meters before PPE (personal protective equipment) is required. The latest regulations state “Where a person could fall a distance liable to cause personal injury”.

Make sure you have done a method statement and a risk assessment.

Have a rescue plan in place. Do NOT rely on emergency services.

Train people in the use of fall protection equipment.

Inspection of fall protection equipment (keep records)

Please note that this is only a very brief description of the regulations. For a full copy visit:
