‘Unique’ harness for confined spaces

HSP3904 - Miller H Design Confined space harness_side - smallHoneywell has launched the Miller H-Design confined space harness, which the firm describe as a ‘unique safety solution for people working in confined spaces’.

According to Honeywell, the harness features a specially designed belt that holds a respiratory mask, providing workers in utilities and water treatment sectors with a comfortable, flexible and easily accessible self-rescue solution.

“Based on customer research, wearing a self-rescuer mask on a traditional harness is not only uncomfortable but can be painful,” said Céline Verdot, product manager of fall protection products for Honeywell Safety Products, EMEA. “The new Miller H-Design confined space harness offers users quick access to their respiratory mask whenever there is a known or potential exposure.”

Honeywell say that the harness is suitable for use with all major self-rescuer masks on the market, due to a unique single webbing attachment system, and the soft and flexible padded belt can be adjusted in height to suit the user. The self-rescuer mask can be placed either on the front, side, or back of the harness for greater freedom of movement with a smooth, sliding action bringing the mask to the front of the belt quickly and easily in case of emergency, they add.

The company say the harness complies with EN361:2002 and is available on its own or as a complete unit with belt and harness. It is fitted with DuraFlex® stretch webbing at the shoulders for additional comfort, says Honeywell, adding that the Miller H-Design has features that make it up to three times faster to put on than traditional harnesses including easy to access buckles that offer the ability to make intuitive adjustments by pulling from the top down (vs. traditional harness buckles that require pulling from the bottom up).
