Tool lanyards to eliminate danger of dropping tools while working at height

Buy tool lanyards from Prolift Access

Ridgegear’s tool lanyards can help you prevent dropping tools while working at height

Tool lanyards are an essential height safety product designed to eliminate injuries from falling tools – a significant cause of fatalities in the workplace.

Ridgegear’s full range of high-quality tool lanyards are available to buy now from the Prolift Access e-shop on our website.

These UK-made lanyards come in three different ranges with a variety of tool tethering options, as well as a loop for karabiner connection to your harness.

Standard tool lanyards are made from high-quality flat webbing to provide basic tool restraint for small tools weighing up to 3kg.

The elastic tool lanyard range is manufactured from webbing with added elastication for ease of movement and basic energy-absorbing properties.

Ridgegear also have a shock absorber tool lanyard range, which are made from either advanced Kinetic webbing or incorporating a neat shock pack. These shock absorber lanyards are the pinnacle of tool height safety. In the event of dropping a heavy tool, they significantly minimise the risk of the user being pulled off a ladder or platform by drastically reducing the peak loads.

Prices for these tool lanyards start at just £8.00 each. To browse the entire range, visit our Prolift Access tool lanyard sales page on our website or call us on 01823 653927 for more details.

Unusual discovery during boom lift LOLER examination

Prolift Access engineers are experts in fault-finding and repair when it comes to powered access equipment, but some jobs aren’t as straight forward as you’d expect.

A family of birds found nesting in a customer’s boom lift this week

During a visit to a customer’s site for a routine LOLER examination and service on a trailer-mounted boom lift this week, our mobile engineer Barry Green made a particularly unusual discovery.

A family of birds had nested in the Niftylift 120T and, judging by Barry’s photo, the babies seemed more interested in getting their breakfast than a six-monthly LOLER.

After liaising with the customer, it was decided to delay the service and keep the machine out of action until the young birds have flown the nest.

Our standard agreements over 1-3 years include all LOLER examinations, services, reminders, certificates and documentation, as well as no callout fees on breakdowns. We have depots located across the South West, and can provide flexible agreements tailored to suit your requirements.

If you own a boom or scissor lift and would like to know more about our service maintenance agreements, call us now on 01823 665902 or email [email protected].
