Types of full-body harnesses

A full-body safety harness helps distribute fall forces over the upper thighs, pelvis, chest and shoulders should a fall occur. These types of harnesses also provide a connection point on the worker for a personal self-retracting lifeline (SRL) or lanyard, which in turn is connected to the appropriate anchor point.
