Is there a maximum weight limit for a harness?

Stephanie Sousa Updated by Stephanie Sousa

Yes. The weight limit varies by manufacturer and harness type. For safety reasons, the maximum weight limit for most of the harnesses we sell is 310 pounds. Some go up to 420 pounds. It’s important to keep tools, work clothing, etc. in mind in addition to the individual's body weight. Do not push the weight limit because you will be putting the worker at risk as well as not being in compliance should there be an accident. Please review the weight rating on the individual product page for any fall protection equipment (ie lanyards, winches, and/or SRL's) you are considering.
