HEIGHT SAFETY & CONFINED SPACES

CORRECT FITTING OF A HARNESS

1
Inspect harness to make sure it is fit for your height safety application and that all components are in good working condition.
2
Hold harness by the Rear/Dorsal Dee Ring and arrange harness straps to avoid any crossed or twisted straps.
3
Do the harness as you would put on a jacket.
4
The “Dee” ring must be positioned between the shoulder blades.

Adjust shoulder strap to approx 100mm of extra webbing above buckle to ensure sub-pelvic strap is positioned correctly and forms a seat.

5
Connect the chest strap across the upper body, and then connect the waist strap (if fitted – multipurpose models)

6
Secure left leg strap to left leg buckle and right leg strap to right leg buckle, making sure the webbing is not twisted.

7
Adjust all straps and buckles for a firm, comfortable fit. Have a work mate check all connections.

8
The belay loops must be brought together and fixed with an approved connector. (Note: Never use single belay loops – always use in pairs).
