Choosing the Right Harness

There are a lot of harnesses on the market and choosing the right one is important. Here are some things to consider as you make your choice:

  • Comfort - Padding makes your harness more comfortable and comfort is important. If you’re working in the air everyday and find yourself in your harness day in and day out, you want it to be comfortable. Frankly, you’ll wear it more than it’s function will be deployed so you want it to be comfortable.

  • Buckles - What kind of buckles does your prospective harness have? Does it have quick-connect buckles or pass-through buckles? You’ll find that the quick-connect style is more user friendly and provides ease when making adjustments.

  • Weight - Remember, you’re wearing this harness a lot and getting one that is as lightweight as possible while still providing the necessary ease of use and safety is worth taking into consideration.

  • Additional Safety Features - It’s a good idea to choose harnesses with additional safety features other than just the standard harness features. For instance, some models have spring-loaded D-ring on the back that allows for easier hooking in. If possible, make sure that your harness has the latest in impact indicators to ensure your awareness of any compromised equipment while you work.

When buying a full-body harness, cost is always a factor, but should not be your primary consideration. This is one area that you should consider spending a little more in order to make sure that you get the best available equipment to keep you safe on the job.
