Workers must be trained in the proper wear and use of the body harness. They are not a one size fits all component. Proper sizing is critical to preventing injuries. The harness must fit snugly across the chest and around the thighs and the D-ring must be positioned in the center of the back between the shoulder blades.
Employers must ensure workers use a size that fits properly.
