Tractel’s Ladytrac harness features several plus points that make it particularly suitable for use by female operators of mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPs). It is suitable for use by male operators. The straps are not positioned across the chest; they are positioned down the side of the upper body. The harness comes with a detachable, lightweight, breathable vest fitted with adjustable Velcro fastening at multiple points. The buckles featuring color coding and quick release are fastened on the outer thigh, as opposed to the inner thigh. The harness from ZT features a harness with two shoulder straps built into workmen’s trousers through an alternate thick/thin webbing system. In the event of a catapulting incident, the thin, movable webbing that is fitted within the thick webbing pulls tight. The load-bearing pressure is directed around the calf muscles and the force is spread through the strong trouser material.
