The RGH5 is designed for use as a confined access harness. The front and rear attachment points can be used as standard fall arrest points and the rescue strap can be used for lifting & lowering. When used, the rescue strap keeps the operative in a near vertical position, which is preferred when recovering an unconscious casualty.
This harness is used throughout the industry in conjunction with a tripod (RGR1) and a winch unit to access confined spaces, vertical shafts, sewers and silos. As with all of the RidgeGear harnesses, the RGH5 is suitable for use with fall arrest/recovery blocks.
