Fall protection harnesses

A harness is one of the common PPE items used when working at heights or in confined spaces. Height Safety Engineers can supply you with the best harness for your needs.

Harnesses come in a variety of different shapes, sizes and often go by different names. You may know them as a roofers’ harness, safety harness, roof safety harness or maybe even something else.

All harnesses used in Australia for fall protection must comply with AS1891.1 – Manufacturing requirements for full body combination and lower body harnesses. If your harness does not meet this standard, then it is likely it will not act correctly in the event of a fall. It could even cause you additional harm.

About safety harnesses

Fall protection harness are often designed to best suit specific working at heights or fall protection situations. While just about every harness available will have front and rear attachments points, to connect to a basic fall arrest system, others may have additional attachment points and features.

Harnesses with side hip-attachment points are often used when working on poles or trees, as these allow the user to attach a pole strap to their harness. They can then go about their work with both hands free.

When being lowered through an access hatch into a confined space, the harness may have shoulder attachments points. These are to allow the use of a spreader bar to make lowering through the access way easier.
