Fall-protection harnesses

If you list products on our store, you must comply with all federal, state, and local laws and our policies applicable to those products and product listings, including this policy.

Fall-protection harnesses covered by this policy

A fall-protection harness is a form of protective equipment that is designed to be worn around the body while working at height or travelling to an unguarded edge from which a worker could fall. The harness is designed to contain the torso and distribute the fall arrest forces over at least the upper thighs, pelvis, chest, and shoulders. The harness is an attachment between a stationary and non-stationary object and is usually fabricated from rope, cable or webbing and locking hardware. Fall-protection harnesses can be full body (around the arms, legs and shoulders) or half body (around the waist and shoulders).
