Fall arrest harnesses (EN 361)
Harnesses that protect the wearer from falling, featuring an attachment point on the chest (sternal) and/or at the rear (dorsal) compliant with standard EN 361, clearly marked with the letter “A” for “fall Arrest”. In the event of the wearer falling, the position of the attachment point ensures that the resulting impact is tolerable by the human body and distributed along the body’s axis, and that the body is suspended vertically after the fall is arrested. Fall arrest harnesses are available as conventional harnesses and as part of a system featuring a body vest that makes the harness much easier to use and the user more visible. Typical applications are in the building industry, such as for rooftop work and work from elevating work platforms.
