At-height workers have different options when it comes to connectors that aid in fall arrest and fall restraint. Rope grabs are a popular option because they are often more cost-effective than SRLs.
Harness your fit
3M™ Fall Protection Harness Solutions come in all shapes and sizes. When you work at heights, you need a harness that gives you a full range of motion, with a fit that’s snug, but comfortable.

A fall from heights can be deadly. This is why it is crucial to take the time to properly inspect fall protection equipment to help prevent a fall from occurring.
