May 11, 2005

Health & Safety

Montreal, QC 2004 Now a new harness has been designed that is easier to don and much more comfortable to wear. Since the back pad fully covers not only the back portion of the user and also has full frontal coverage for a more effective padded support, the workers will wear it longer and more often, stated Mr. Fusco, product manager for Fall Protection products at North.

The harness comes with bayonet style buckles for the chest strap and both leg straps. This lightweight harness weighs a mere 3.4 lbs (1.5 Kg) and features a universal fit with a dorsal D ring attachment.

Certified: CAN/CSA Z259.10 M90 Full Body Harness Class A
Compliance: ANSI Z359.1 and A10.14-1991 Class III OSHA 1910.66 App. C.

Component Compatibility: North full body harnesses are designed for use with North approved components or subsystems (lifelines, energy absorbers, lanyards, rope grabs and self-retracting lifelines) or as recommended by a Qualified Person.
