Werner has announced a major upgrade in its Blue Armor and LiteFit fall protection harness series, with the addition of a patented Relief Handle for proven post-fall performance. In the event of a fall, these harnesses will help users achieve a gravity override position to relieve pressure on their femoral arteries while they await rescue.
“The addition of the Relief Handle to our popular Blue Armor and LiteFit series is helping us achieve our brand promise of making safety the highest priority,” said Eric Miller, director, product management – fall protection. “We recognize the critical need for professionals wearing fall protection harnesses to either be able to self-rescue or put themselves in a safe position while the rescue occurs. Our new harnesses now can be manipulated in a post-fall condition.”
