About LiftingSafety

For over 25 years we have been providing sales, hire, design, manufacture, installation, testing and certification of lifting and rigging gear, material handling and height safety equipment and accessories.

SELS BannerFounded in 1994 and becoming a Private Limited Company in 1995, the business was originally named ‘Selby Engineering & Lifting Services’ known locally and recognised as ‘SELS’ due to the logo.

The company was set up as a local lifting equipment service, supply and hire provider, with our main custom coming from the Selby Coal Field industry.

Word of mouth spread about the quality of service we provided and with an ever expanding reputation, business spread across the area and we began to provide services across all kinds of industries - Power Stations, Manufacturing / Fabrication, Food Industry, Glass Production, Rail & Civil Engineering and Chemical and Water Industries to name only a few.

With the emergence of the world wide web in the late 1990’s and technology and means of communication forever advancing we were one of the first in our sector to launch a website... that meant we could expand our business to areas / countries that would have previously been difficult.

Lifting Safety BannerIn August 2005 we launched and in July 2006 we ’re-branded’ and changed our registered name to ‘Selby Engineering & Lifting Safety Ltd’, now know locally and worldwide as ‘LiftingSafety’.


Today we’re proud agents / distributors for many of the biggest brands within our field, provide services across the whole of the UK and export Lifting, Rigging, Material Handling and Height Safety equipment globally on a daily basis to all corners of the world - often at very short notice. We have very much a can do attitude, if you need it, we will try our hardest to make it happen (one Friday afternoon the MD jumped in his van and drove to Norway to hand deliver some equipment that was required that weekend).

To get a quote simply find the required product(s) and use the 'Add to Quote Request' button and request a written quote from us, or you can call our office and speak to one of our dedicated team on UK 01977 684600 or overseas 0044 1977 684 600.

As it stands at the moment on liftingsafety we feel it couldn't be easier getting a quote for lifting or height safety equipment as every single product has a quantity box and quotation button, however some products do not have every configuration of options available to select for quotation and at this point you can input the specific requirements for the quotation in the comments box or call our sales office. Buying on-line within our website is temporarily disabled as a lot of options and prices are still to be updated, however in the very near future the ability to buy online will once again be available.

Lifting and Height Safety Quotes

All our lifting equipment and height safety products are available for quotation and all of which will receive a discount where possible when quoted by us. Quite a lot of products for which we are a stockist / supplier already have a sale price fitted to them, but this does not mean that is the only discount you will receive. 95% of the quotations sent out by Selby Engineering and Lifting Safety Ltd have an extra discount for the already applied sale price which means you could save even more money. This is a particularly useful feature throughout our site if you are working to a tight budget.

All quotations received by us are processed as quick as possible by one of our team, however its not always possible to have your quotation with you as quick as we would like, especially when it comes to some of the more bespoke items which we have on offer. If you need your quotation urgently, then feel free to contact our office where one of the dedicated height safety or lifting equipment specialists will be happy to assist you in processing your quotation.

We supply a massive range of items, we can offer bespoke solutions and items from industry leading suppliers such as:
