When working in tough environments, it is essential to be able to count on the performance and quality of your gear. Nothing is worse than a false sense of safety in a life-threatening situation. Petzl® has developed harnesses that meet OSHA safety requirements for work-at-heights (fall arrest, work positioning, suspension, confined space entry, and rescue), and extreme sports (caving, mountain and rock climbing).
This comfortable lightweight fall protection harness is designed to provide a full range of motion for workers during their long shifts at heights. It meets ANSI Z359.1, NFPA 1983, CSA Z259.10 requirements, and features a semi-rigid waistbelt and leg loops for excellent support, and self-locking DoubleBack buckles for easy adjustment. The X-shaped dorsal construction wraps around to reduce pressure points during prolonged suspension. In the event of a fall, smart engineering distributes the weight of a user to leg straps while attached to the dorsal D-ring, which helps reduce harness trauma and allows a worker to remain suspended longer while waiting for a rescue team.
This harness is sturdy and durable. The waistband is slightly rigid for extra comfort and has a breathable mesh to prevent users from overheating and sweating. With its unique design, the harness provides even body weight distribution, so if you are leaning back in the harness, you will still be able to get the job done. The SIT features self-locking DoubleBack buckles on waist and legs, three equipment loops each capable of holding up to 22 lb of equipment, as well as one CARITOOL loop, which can take up to 33 lb load. A rear loop allows you to either attach a restraint lanyard, or a top harness and convert it into a rope access harness.
Both types of harnesses come in two sizes to suit all body shapes and to make sure you have the most comfortable fit. It is important to take good care of your equipment over prolonged use. Look for cuts and wear and tear due to use, heat, or exposure to chemicals. To ensure your safety, we (and OSHA) recommend a detailed inspection of your harness by a competent person at least once every 12 months.
We love to have happy, satisfied and safe customers. See what one of our customers has said about this product:
“We operate a waterfall rappel adventure for clients that visit our island of Kauai and this seat harness is excellent for what we do. The crew at times needs to do rescue operations, and testing this seat out on our waterfall is great. It’s comfortable, so easy on the back, and with all the extra features to it, we can hang a lot of rescue equipment in case of an emergency, therefore, be well prepared. Another beautiful thing about it, it is light but yet built strongly!”
