Topic - Rope Access Harness Type

Giles Davis - on 09 Jul 2013
Hi,

Looking for some advice off the Rope Access type peeps.

With regards to the type of harness used for either Confined Space entry and / or working at height is there a preference as to whether or not the lanyard or rope is attached to the front or back of the harness?

Just a bit more info as to my question, I'm thinking if you fall or need rescuing and you are suspended from the rear then any attempts at self-righting yourself to avoid suspension trauma is going to be a whole lot more difficult than if you are attached to the front of the harness (as in climbing)?

What are the industry standards and rational behind best practice (what ever best practice is)?

Cheers
Giles
