Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to wear a harness?

Work Safe NZ require users to where harnesses when in the basket of a cherrypicker or boom type lift. Prior to the use of a scissorlift, a Hazard Assessment of the site should be completed to decide on whether a harness system will be required to complete the job safely. Should the decision to use a harness be made, the harness should be attached to certified anchor points using a lanyard or adjustable lanyard, fitted with a short energy absorber or fit for purpose self retracting lifeline (SRL).

Do you supply harnesses with your equipment?

Yes – we do carry harnesses for supply
