Well designed equipment to enhance industrial safety

Crane drivers and operating personnel often have to work at great heights. Liebherr has developed an effective safety concept to provide them with the best possible safety standards. Collective safety equipment such as railings and handles on mobile and crawler cranes prevent them from falling.

In addition, we fit every new crane with a fall arrest system. The safety harnesses are attached to steel cables which run along the boom using carabiner hooks. The PPE has undergone a whole series of tests and has received multiple certificates from state safety authorities.

Collective and personal fall arrest systems

  • During everyday work you often do not have a free hand to hold on to safety equipment. Railings on the vehicle prevent falling.

Safe working with derrick ballast

Liebherr also attaches great value to safe working practices with additional equipment. For example, our ballast trailers feature a wide range of safety equipment.
