A full body harness can be used when the user is working at height, ideally at more than 2 mtrs above the ground level or any working surface, or in any situation where the user is exposed to a risk of fall.
There are many types of full body harnesses with respect to their usage and are of application. As per Indian Standards-IS 3521, the harnesses are classified as Classes-A, D, E, L & P. In the same way, EN as well ANSI standards give different categorization depending on the usage of harnesses.
Any space which meets any or all three following criteria would be referred as ‘Confined Space’:
- When the space is not large enough and so cramped that an employee cannot bodily enter and perform assigned work.
- If the space has limited or restricted means for entry or exit
- If the space Is not designed for continuous employee occupancy.
Examples of Confined Spaces include chamber, tank, pit, well, sewer, tunnel, pipe, boiler, shaft or silo.
The normal winch used for lowering or raising a user while working in confined spaces is called two-way winches.
3-way winches also act to fall arrest in addition to lowering or raising the user.
Yes. SRL ( Self Retracting Life lines) is a fall protection device. It is an ideal choice in conditios where the dall clearance distance is less. In case of a fallthe self braking system within the Block activates and locks the fall immediately
As per EN 795, the anchors should be able to withstand a static load of 12kN.

Components of a PFAS (Personal Fall-Arrest System): A-Anchor, B-Body Support ( Full Body Harness) C- Connecting element/connectors and D- Descent devices for rescue constitute the Personal Fall Arrest System. In addition to these, E- Education or training should also be considered.
A shock-absorbing lanyard absorbs shock during the fall arrest and it ensures to limit force to less than 6kN.
This is the storage life of the product before it is put to first use. Shelf life starts from the date of manufacture until the date of first use.
Refer to the user instruction manual provided by the manufacturer.
As per EN 795 :2012, there are 5 types of anchor devices: A, B,C, D & E. Out of these only B & E Anchor devices are considered as PPE.
Harness selection is based on applications like fall arrest, suspension work, rope access or rescue and
along with area of application as well.Based on these two criteria one can select harness as per his need
A person can fall even while walking on slippery surfaces. Fall protection can be used anywhere
where there is risk of fall by slip, trip or from height.
Both can be used depending upon the application. If the fall clearance distance is not available, it is always advised to use a Self Retracting lifeline. Energy absorbing lanyard extends by deploying during fall so there can be a risk of fall on ground if being used at a place where fall clearance of atleast 6m is not available.
According to the BS 8437:2005 and EN 365, it is mandate that the Harness should be inspected at least once in every 12 months (from the date of first use). Inspection should be conducted by Authorized Service Center or a competent person appropriately authorised by the manufacturer. However, It is recommended that the user should visually inspect the PPE before each use.
There is a full list of parameters for inspection like: cut/ abrasion/ discolouration/ burns etc.
Rope inspection is done visually and by touching. It can be done only by a competent person or team authorised and trained by the manufacturer. There is a full list of parameters for inspection like: cut/ abrasion/ discolouration/ burn etc.
Harness selection is based on applications like fall arrest, suspension work, rope access or rescue and along with area of application as well. Based on these two criteria one can select harness from a wide range of harnesses of KARAM.
Karabiners are classified as per the usage: Classes M,B,A,T & Q
A: Anchor Connector
Q: Screw link connector
Lanyards can be made up of polyamide twisted rope, Kernmantle rope or polyester webbing.
Lanyard attachment means the attachment arrangement in which one end of the lanyard is connected to the user's
harness and another end to the anchorage point. There are different combinations possible depending on the structure
available at site.
Restraint Lanyards: These Lanyards can be used to restrain movement of users so that fall doesn't happen.
Work positioning Lanyard: These are used in applications where the user has to perform a task at height and wants his hands free by positioning himself safe at height.
Fall arrest lanyards: These lanyards are used when working at height and there is risk of fall. These lanyards have energy absorbers which act to absorb shock of the user in the event of fall.
Not all Fall Protection Harnesses can be used for rescue. For carrying out rescue activities, Harness should have attachment points on sternal and ventral position along with attachment point on dorsal position.
Certified Harnesses are equipped with fall arrest attachment points. For carrying out rescue activities,
harness should have attachment points on sternal and ventral position along with attachment point on dorsal position.
Not necessarily. Shoulder D rings act just to lower down or raise the user up from confined space. For complete safety we should have harness with other attachment points too for example Dorsal D ring, Sternal D-ring etc
The very first thing is to bring the victim down on the ground from a hanging position. Once the victim is brought down, immediately give him basic first aid and inform the officials. In severe cases, call medical help from the nearest medical centre/ hospital.
Tie-back lanyards can be wrapped around a structure like scaffolding and beams and hook onto itself – creating an anchorage point without the anchor.
Orange color vest jacket are meant for Traffic signallers & Construction site workers, Yellow are meant for Construction workers, Emergency responders etc.
All safety vests are rated and approved by American National Standards Institute (ANSI). Safety vests are classified as Class 1, Class 2, or Class 3, based on the amount of both reflective material and high contrast (orange or lime color) fabric making up the vest.The degree of reflectivity in the tape and intensity of the background fabric colors are specified in the ANSI standard. The more hazardous your workplace, the more visible your team needs to be.
High visibility jackets are an article of PPE or safety clothing made of retro reflective materials. These jackets
are worn by people working on roads or rails, construction industry, ports, airports, shipyards, workers working in bad weather or in areas having low visibility, cyclists, motor cyclists, traffic police, etc. They make the wearer conspicuous in low daylight or in the dark when illuminated by headlights. The colors are also flame buoyant and contrast with surroundings for quick detection and accident avoidance.
Vests in safety yellow color is one high visibility safety standard. Safety in Yellow color means preventing
accidents and keeping people safe. The human brain mostly notices this color, this is the reason why most warning signs, hazard symbols and personal protective equipment are in this color. This type of safety vest can be seen worn by construction workers and other workers who work outdoors. Also, it is widely used byemergency responders and other road workers alike. When yellow vest gets dirty, the yellow shade will brighten more for some kind of dirt like oil. However, if the dirt is dark it will be highly noticeable.
Store the equipment in a well-ventilated area away from heavily acidic or basic environment. Never place heavy items on top of it. Also ensure that it is stored away from chemically hazardous environment preferably stored in a dry environment.
