Harness system for working at height

Working at heights remains a high risk activity, with falling from above ground level being a major cause of injuries and fatal accidents.

Sites should provide modern, up to date equipment and tools, as well as risk information and safety processes to follow.

Personal Rescue Devices (PRD’s) can be used on site to help prevent injuries and fatalities, whilst working at height:

  • The PRD is an harness system for self rescue of operatives working at height, the system consists of a 20m spool of cord and braking mechanism contained in a backpack;
  • The harness system has a parachute style rip-cord system, which when pulled lowers the faller to the ground in a controlled descent;
  • This system is a safer and more convenient alternative to traditional methods as rescue time is significantly reduced.
