Body harnesses are items of apparel that allow the wearer to integrate into a fall arrest system. These items are designed to be non-constrictive but comprehensive in their ability to secure workers to anchors. They are often made of webbing and other high tensile fabrics, along with locking hardware. A tether is used to provide the worker with mobility at the expense of range. Tethers are also used to decelerate the user in the event of a fall. These items of PPE are considered essential tools for conducting any type of work that can be described as aerial or elevated.
