Who We Are

Safety First Ltd. is Scotland's leading specialist hirer and supplier of equipment for safe working in confined spaces, working at height and cable avoidance tools.

Formed in 2000 by Michael and Brenda Green in Linlithgow, chosen because of its excellent road networks to the Central Belt, Safety First was initially focussed on providing a second to none service to the Civil Engineering and Construction trades. It rapidly established a reputation for excellent service, quality products from leading brands such as Drager, Sala, Status, Radiodection etc.., and solid reliable advice throughout the whole of Scotland.

Providing a service for critical safety equipment is by its nature more demanding than providing tools and machines. It is by setting new standards of excellence in supporting safe working in Confined Spaces and when Working at Height that clearly has differentiated Safety First from the pack.

Now with a fleet holding of over a thousand items and growing, and a loyal customer base which includes not only blue chip Civil Engineering giants such as AMEC plc., Gleesons but also many clients from sectors such as local authorities, oil and gas, industrial cleaning amongst many other trades.

Quite simply, it's no accident that Safety First are No.1 in Scotland.


Why Use Safety First

Ensuring a safe working environment for employees is one of the most difficult challenges facing management today. Health and Safety legislation is continually evolving as we strive towards being incident and injury free in our place of work.

Safety First's sole focus is on supplying equipment for work in confined spaces, working at height and cable avoidance. We are proud to use the word 'specialist' because it's all we do and we know our products, our markets, our customers and Health and Safety related legislation.

The customer service and technical team are dedicated to providing the right equipment for the application. We are happy to visit any site to help specify the correct products at any time.

All equipment is checked, calibrated and cleaned to 'zero tolerance' standards before it is either collected or delivered to site by one of our service team. All items are provided with the current certificate at time of handover. We provide full written instructions and will demonstrate any piece of equipment on site to operatives if required.
