HCL—Safety in the built environment

For more than 30 years HCL has applied its expertise to ensure the safety of people working at height and the integrity of the structures they work on.

HCL cares for the safety of people in the built environment. Through our three specialist service divisions we provide fall protection systems for people working at height, we re-test safety at height systems to ensure their continued validity and we provide specialist fixings capabilities to maintain the structural integrity of buildings. Each service is focused by expertise and delivered with a commitment to the highest quality standards.

HCL's integrated safety services are delivered by three specialist divisions;
Installation, Inspection and Certification and Contracts.


HCL Installation specialises in the design and installation of fall protection systems. As the UK market leader, we provide a comprehensive range of solutions including guardrails for collective protection, non-slip walkways and ManSafe cable systems for fall restraint and fall arrest. HCL systems can be applied to virtually any type of structure and operate horizontally, vertically, around corners and up and down slopes.

Inspection and Certification

By the nature of their function, fall protection systems are often exposed to the harshest climatic and operational conditions. As such, there is a UK legal requirement for them to be periodically tested to ensure their continued validity. HCL provides a nation-wide service, delivered by directly employed experts, to re-test and certify all aspects of safety at height systems and related equipment.


Buildings of all ages, shapes and sizes are subject to movement or have design or workmanship defects. This can result in unstable facades or cracked and damaged structural members. HCL provides a specialist building repair service to correct such problems. HCL's expert services range from wall tie replacement and concrete repair through to Cintec cementitous structural anchors.
