National Safety Stand-Down Week: Safety Harnesses

Safety Harness                

In almost every industry, there are areas where workers are subjected to fall hazards.

Fall protection begins with a strong safety harness. A safety harness is a form of protective equipment designed to protect a person from injury or damage. The harness is an attachment between a stationary and non-stationary object and is usually fabricated from rope, cable or webbing and locking hardware. Each fall arrest harness features secure leg, torso and shoulder straps that easily adapt to other fall accessories and gear.

Check out this video from OSHA on How to Inspect and Don a Full Body Harness.
