Needle Sports is a climbing shop and, while there is much cross-over between the worlds of climbing and those of working at heights and rescue, they are not the same.
In the climbing world each climber takes responsibility for their own actions, and may literally live or die by their choices. Climbers accept this by and large and the law seldom rears its costly head in climbing circles.
Not so in the working world which is bound by numerous regulations that one would be foolish to ignore.
For those wanting safety equipment for working at heights, including tree surgeons, we recommend experts on Work and Rescue equipment such Lyon Equipment, importers of Petzl and Beal and one of the UK's biggest and most knowledgeable suppliers and trainers in the area of rope access work.
Due to health and safety legislation we regret that we cannot offer advice on working at heights to untrained personnel. Lyon Equipment provide suitable courses.
