Varying Types of Harnesses and their Usages

Harnesses are an essential component in completing a job safely. They are designed with the sole purpose of keeping you secure. Harnesses are strong enough to hold the weight of your body, the tools that you are using, and any other equipment that you may need for your job. There are a wide variety of harnesses on the market, including the Exofit NEX harness, Exofit NEX rope access/rescue harness, fall safe construction harnesses, and many other multi purpose types. Which harness is right for your job? The best way to answer that question is by asking a representative from where you are purchasing the harness.

Safety Harnesses

Safety harnesses are used for keeping you secure while on the job site. These harnesses often fit tightly and contain a variety of attachments to ensure your safety. Safety harnesses often include pockets for holding tools, since you are most likely working while strapped into them. They are most commonly used during high-risk construction jobs and contain heavy padding for comfort. Some examples of safety harnesses include:

* Seraph Construction Harnesses
* Protecta Pro Construction Harnesses
* Cyclone Reflective Construction Harnesses
* ExoFit NEX Construction Style Harness

Climbing Harnesses

Climbing harnesses are primarily used at construction jobs with tall buildings including skyscrapers, dams, and building of the like. These harnesses not only need to be secure, but also need to be able to hold the weight of a person as they are climbing. Those who are engaged in a climbing job will often be suspended in the air, so these harnesses need to be able to support their resting weight. Examples of high-grade climbing harnesses include:

* ExoFit NEX Harnesses
* Premium Tower Harnesses
* Cyclone Construction Harnesses
* Delta Tower Climbing Harnesses

All these harnesses can be found in-store or online at Harness Land.

Rescue Harnesses

Unfortunately, it isn’t uncommon for someone to get hurt while on a construction job. If a worker is hurt on the job, you may have to go down and retrieve them and get them to safety. This job requires a harness that can support you as well as the weight of whomever you are rescuing. The following are a few of the top rescue harnesses on the market.

* Latchaways Personal Rescue Device Harness
* ExoFit NEX Harness
* ExoFit NEX Rope Access and Rescue Harness
* CMC/Cobra Rescue Harness
