Fall protection is an important part of your job - and here at Columbia Safety and Supply, we know fall protection. No fall protection setup is complete without a harness. A safety harness not only needs to be functional, but comfortable as well. That’s why we offer a wide variety of harnesses built with the concrete industry in mind.

Some things to keep in mind when choosing your harness is what materials the harness and hardware (like D-rings and other connectors are made of). You should also look at connection styles, sizing, and any applicable certifications.

Materials: Any fall protection harness is going to feature aluminum or steel D-rings. Aluminum D-rings are lighter but more expensive. Steel D-rings, on the other hand, are cheaper but much heavier.

D-rings, Connectors, and Sizing: You have 3 main options in connectors - tongue buckle, pass-through buckle, and quick connect buckle. Sizing varies depending on the manufacturer and we have a sizing chart reference guide to help you ensure that your harness will fit the way you need it to stay safe.

Certifications: When looking at full body harnesses it is important to keep in mind the certifications you need them to meet. If you are working in the United States you will need a harness that meets ANSI Z359.11-2014. ANSI Z359.11-2014 outlines the safety requirements for a full body harness. If you are working in Canada you will need a harness that meets the CSA requirements. Your CSA harness will need to meet the CSA Z259.10-12 Full Body Harness Standard.
