Back support, tool carrying and suspension versatility!
3M manufactures the most comfortable and widest range of body belts you'll find anywhere and are easily customized to fit your body and to fit your style of working. A safety belt is ideal for work positioning and activities where you need to be restrained from a leading edge or where there is NO possibility of a vertical free fall. 

It is also easy to add a body belt to most harnesses for added back support and versatility. Our workseats and bosun chairs are intended to be used as part of a personnel riding system for use inspection work, window washing, painting and maintenance, with some used in work positioning applications. 

Whether it's one of our boatswain's chairs, work seats, or seat slings; you're sure to find the appropriate system for your specific application.​​
Choose The Right Body Belts and Workseats
Work positioning belts include side D-rings located on each hip and hold and sustain you at a specific work location, limiting any free fall to two feet or less. Rebar tying and concrete wall-form work are typical applications.​​

Many harnesses can accommodate a belt for added back support, tool carrying options and restraint or work positioning job tasks.
