No fall arrest system would be complete without a quality fall protection harness. However, since workers come in all different shapes and sizes, it’s important to find the right safety harness.
The other factor to consider is that not all tasks that workers at height must carry out are the same. Different jobs require different amounts of mobility under varying environmental conditions. Having a wide selection of contractor-approved construction safety harnesses to choose from is the only way to ensure you and your employees have the personal safety equipment needed to work safely and confidently when the risk of a fall is present.
While universal safety harnesses are typically adjustable across five points and can be shared by more than one worker, there are also harnesses that come in sizes ranging from S to 3XL. This point is an important one to keep in mind since the individual wearer must be able to comfortably and securely adjust the harness to their body type for it to work effectively.
In addition, the specific type of task that needs to be performed also determines the type of harness you’ll need. For example, there are harnesses designed to resist the damage of burning and charring due to sparks and splatter from welding. There are also lightweight harnesses with extra seat support for tower and wind turbine climbers. The work application the harness will be used for has as much impact on the selection of the right one as the size of the individual who will be wearing it.
You can trust Construction Fasteners and Tools to always have the safety harness you need. We stock harnesses from Miller, Protecta, Dynamic Safety, DBI-SALA, North Safety and 3M.
