Professional harnesses with straps in different colours to ease dressing and adjustments to easily adapt to the body.
When choosing a harness it is necessary to consider some essential factors such as weight, practicality, presence of leg straps, comfort and, mainly, the type of work the harness is needed for. The icons displayed on each item differentiate the products and indicate the attachment points on each harness.
Some harnesses combine different types of anchor points and therefore have different certifications. It is the user responsibility to decide which harness is most suitable for the type of work performed.
Once the harness has been put on, its adjustment starts from the bottom: legs, stomach and then shoulders. The straps must adhere to the body as much as possible.
Remember to empty your pockets before all operations at heights. Any keys, screwdrivers and other objects can become blades causing harmfull injury.
In compliance with EN 361. Harness with fall arrest attachments, ideal for all types of works exposed to risks of falls from heights. Harnesses have a dorsal and sternal attachment recommended when work allows for their use because, in the event of a fall, a “front attachment” can allow a maximum stay time of 20 minutes.
In compliance with EN 358. Straps with side positioning attachments.
Caution: Positioning points are not fall arrest devices.
In compliance with EN 813. Harness with bottom attachment for suspended works. Equipment necessary for this type of work is attached to this anchor point.
Caution: The attachment for suspended works is not a fall arrest device.
Depending on the type of access available in the confined space, more fully described in the appropriate section, ideal harnesses exist for carrying out this type of work, guaranteeing maximum safety both in the works/descent phase and in the event of a recovery.
