Fall protection equipment is an essential part of any jobsite when it comes to working at heights. Crazy to imagine 11 people died building the Golden Gate Bridge and that was celebrated as a huge safety accomplishment. In the 1930’s the rule of thumb was 1 death per $1 million of project cost, at $35 million total the expectation was 35 people might die to get the job done (history.com). Today thankfully 1 death is too many when it comes to preventable injuries and as we learn more the technology improves. Leading Edge technology for SRLs is where many companies are headed to keep workers safe. (more…)
When it comes to fall protection we have seen more companies to not only meeting OSHA requirement but really surpassing them to ensure highest level of safety where an employee is at risk of falling off a bridge deck or high platform of any kind. The shock absorbing lanyards which may meet many requirements and have been common place for years are getting replaced in more and more situations by short Self-Retract Devices (SRD) like these new FallTech DuraTech SRD models which can also be worn on the back.

Safety equipment isn’t as fun to shop for and as a new table saw however for some people (more & more as OSHA regulations get tighter) it has become a daily part of life which means you are going to be spending plenty of hours each week in that harness. For this reason there are a wide range of styles and options available today. FallTech pretty much has whatever you are looking for in a Safety Harness, from the very basic (easy on the wallet) to meet OSHA requirements to Kevlar Harnesses with 10,000 lb webbing.
Above you will find the FallTech sizing chart, the “size fits most” section will work for 80-90% of the work force and are the harnesses you will find on www.ohiopowertool.com. Of course extra small and extra large sizes are no problem, simply call 800-242-4424 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and they can help you. Below is a quick rundown of the available FallTech Harnesses:
FT Basic -1D 7007 $29 – 6300lb webbing, 3 Point size adjustment, basically the new guy special…
If you are buying the harness for yourself and looking for comfort obviously the ComfotTech is the way to go, you can wear it for 8 hours and hardly notice you are wearing anything. The Journeyman is also a very popular harness for people purchasing their own equipment and while it doesn’t have all the bells & whistles still a comfortable harness. If you are purchasing for a crew it is a good idea to consider the Contractor over the FT Basic as it have 5 point adjustment and will fit a variety of body types much better.
