Werner ProForm SwitchPoint Harness Redesigns At-Height Safety
Working at height is risky business, even with the proper equipment like harnesses and support cables. We’ve seen Werner’s commitment to safety standards with its Max Patrol self-retracting lifelines, which they created to meet the updated ANSI standards for 2021. Now, we’re taking a look at the Werner ProForm SP Harness to see how they developed and improved upon at-height safety.

In the event of an at-height accident, you want as much control as possible post-fall while you’re suspended. The Werner ProForm SwitchPoint harness gives you more control and maneuverability while you wait for rescue workers to arrive.
It features a hip-level deployment cord for easy application. Once pulled, the harness puts the suspended worker into a comfortable “seated” position with freedom of movement and maneuverability for improved rescue operations.
Here’s what Chris Hillman, a product manager at Werner, had to say about this new safety technology:
“With safety being our number one priority at Werner, we are thrilled to unveil this new technology that will help people get into a safe position and allow them freedom of movement to assist in their own rescue.
“We know that our customers require fall protection that can be trusted and the ProForm SP harness was designed to provide a higher level of safety to protect workers in high-risk environments from fall-related injuries.”
