Safety harnesses, features and differences between various models
Safety harnesses are a crucial protective device for the operator, and that's why every company that uses them must know the details and differences when choosing a harness. In fact, over the years, safety harness designs have evolved, providing greater safety for the wearer and, above all, greater comfort. Safety harnesses should be used whenever there is even the slightest danger of falling and are intended to arrest the fall in a safe and controlled manner without consequence to the worker. Major areas of application for safety harnesses include work at height, work on roofs and scaffolding, and maintenance on airborne platforms.
The first difference to make regarding fall arrest harnesses are the anchorage points:
- 1-point safety harness: this harness model has only 1 point to attach the safety carabiner
- 2-point safety harnesses: this harness model has 2 points on which to attach the carabiner, one at chest height and the second in the center of the shoulders
- 3-point safety harnesses: this harness model has 3 points on which to attach the carabiner, one at chest height, the second in the middle of the shoulders and the third at the waist
- 4-point safety harnesses: this harness model has 4 points on which to attach the carabiner, in addition to the points of the previous ones it has an additional anchorage at pelvis height
In addition, the safety harnesses available in our online store come with or without a lumbar cushion, which has the unique feature of providing additional comfort to the operator while working.
