PURPOSE & BENEFITS
ALLOWS PAINTERS AND OTHER WORKERS TO HAVE HANDS-FREE ACCESS TO ANY VARIETY OF NECESSARY TOOLS ALL THE TIME
Shows a man climbing a ladder and walking on a roof while wearing the harness.
PROVIDES AN EXTRA SAFETY MEASURE FOR PAINTERS WHO ARE REQUIRED TO SPEND THE MAJORITY OF THEIR TIME ON LADDERS, SCAFFOLDS, AND ROOFTOPS.
Shows two painters on a scaffold while wearing the harness.
REDUCES THE AMOUNT OF TRIPS UP AND DOWN A LADDER TO RETRIEVE ANY EXTRA TOOLS NEEDED FOR A JOB.
WORKING ON A LADDER CAN CAUSE MANY PROBLEMS…
Carrying open paint buckets with paint brushes in-hand, up and down step ladders can be dangerous and difficult. Tools falling from a ladder, scaffold, or roof can be dangerous to other workers and pedestrians walking below. Having to continuously climb up and down the ladder to retrieve the necessary painting tools to complete a job can add unnecessary amounts of time to the project. Dropping open paint buckets can also cause damage or unnecessary splatter on a worksite.
Employers must comply with safety and health standards and regulations issued and enforced either by OSHA or by an OSHA-approved state plan.
Using King’s Harness is the only available way to meet these principles.
