Throughout industry there are many situations where workers operate in hazardous and potentially dangerous positions, such as elevated workplaces.
Belts, harnesses and lines are intended both to prevent injury in the event of slipping and falling from heights, and to simplify rescue or control in emergency situations. The potential hazards are fall from heights, falls into vats, silos, tanks etc., persons trapped in confined or in accessible places, tanks, sewers, lift shafts etc.
Dubai Local Order No. 61 of 1991 requires the provision of safety belts, harnesses or lines for the protection of employees and other persons who may be affected by hazards from elevated workplaces. Safety belts, harnesses and lines shall conform to approved Standards.
