Workers building bridges, cleaning office towers or work at height in general, need personal fall protection systems. One of the most common systems is a safety harness and can be a lifesaver for those who occasionally work at heights.

When assessing the need for fall protection, consider if there are locations from which someone could fall. Keep in mind falls from just a few feet off the ground can still be very fatal.

Our safety harness toolbox talk helps keep employees safe and reduce health and safety issues in workplaces where they continuously or occasionally work at height.
