Safety Harnesses

A safety harness is very similar to a fall arrest system, they are pieces of equipment that have been specially designed to protect a person from injury and accidents. A safety harness functionality is to absorb the kinetic energy created when a fall occurs, this is done through properly fitting the harness on a person and attaching the harness to a sturdy, strong place such as a solid railing or built in hook.

The majority of the harnesses in our range are lightweight, simple to use and feature adjustable straps which allow the user to properly and safely fit the harness. Our range also features options that include a belt, reflective and Hi-Vis as well as extra safety features such as adjustable shoulder, chest and leg straps.

Fall arrest systems are connected to a fall arrest lanyard which is a couple of meters long. When a fall happens, the lanyard absorbs the energy created by the fall. The harness acts as fall protection whilst allowing full movement capabilities. Working from a height can be dangerous and accounts for one of the biggest causes of personal injury, so safety equipment that can be relied upon is imperative.

The other advantage of a vest is the protection it provides from chemicals, dirt and UV light. A Jacket harness is often used by people who need to carry out their normal work duties but may occasionally work at height throughout the day.
