CRR 451/2002 - Harness suspension

Review and evaluation of existing information

The objective of this review was to locate and study literature dealing with the effects of being suspended in a harness and evaluate and report on them, together with attendant issues regarding various types of harnesses, including the position of their attachment points. In addition, selected harness standards were to be examined to see if and how they addressed the topic of suspension.

Over 50 documents were located from sources in the United Kingdom, Germany, France and Australia and the Internet. These form the basis of the report.

Some of these research reports are very large. For information about expected download times please see our FAQs pages.
