Serious injuries often resulting in disabilities and deaths at work occur yearly due to falls from heights on-the-job that wearing a Miller safety harness could prevent. Around fifteen percent of all workplace deaths are the result of falls from heights. For over 50 years, Miller has been an industry leader in the development of fall prevention safety harnesses. Such falls can be greatly reduced, if not completely eliminated, by the consistent use of full body safety harnesses.
The Miller Safety Harness Is SEI Certified
The Miller safety harness and all Miller's safety products are designed and tested by their full time staff of engineers and technicians. These products are tested at Miller's in-house testing facility, which works in the Safety Equipment Institute (SEI) certification program in conjunction with third party testing. Miller's full protection safety products meet or exceed all ANSI, CSA and OSHA requirements and standards.
Proper Adjustment Of The Harness Is Key To Safety
The Miller Revolution Harness is a full body safety harness designed with cutting edge features for complete protection. All Revolution harnesses have a weight capacity rating to 400 pound capacity. The web finials' Clip On design safely organizes the webbing without tangling after all proper adjustments are made. The Miller safety harness has included a self-contained label pack that prevents damage and loss to stored labels. The unique rotary design of the harness' PivotLink connection offers more comfortable maneuvering and bending. Its Cam Buckle offers easy one-handed release and adjustment and the Integrated Accessory System offers connection points for belts, tools and accessories.
Miller Safety Harnesses Are Strong And Durable
The Miller Revolution Harness is manufactured in multiple harness designs in four categories of work use. These include the Revolution Construction Harness, the Revolution Tower Climbing Harness, the Revolution Arc Rated Harness and the Revolution Derrick Oil Rig Harness. These harnesses come in one of five different harness webbing options. The first is Dual Tech Webbing. This Miller safety harness webbing is durable and textured yet soft on the inside while the outside is a polyester chemical resistant material. It has an exceptional degree of safety and length of service life due to its tensile strength rated to 7,000 pounds.
Webbing Is Designed For Strength And Comfort
The second type of webbing available in a Miller safety harness is Kevlar/Nomex Webbing. The outer material is black Kevlar and the inside is of gray Nomex for durability in harsh work environments. The third is their patented DuraFlex® Webbing. This is an elastomer that is formulated to stretch.The fourth is Python® Webbing, which is also patented. This tubular webbing is cushioned and designed to reduce stress on the wearer's shoulders when wearing a loaded tool belt. The fifth choice is not actually webbing, but a harness choice. Front D Rings are available for use in attaching the harness to ladder climbing systems, positioning where to work and providing extra control.
Hunters Benefit From Using The Proven Miller Safety Harness
The Miller Revolution Harness for Construction would also make an excellent full body fall protection harness for hunters when in their tree stands. Used harnesses are offered for sale on eBay for almost half of their original cost, which makes the price competitive with the cost of hunter safety harnesses built specifically for hunters. If the harnesses comply with OSHA, ANSI and CSA regulations, they will also comply with TMA (Tree Manufacturers Association) standards. A Miller safety harness rated for fall arrests on a construction site will work quite well for arresting a hunter's fall from a tree when worn properly with a climbing belt.
There Are Also Safety Harnesses Made Just For Hunters
For a fall protection safety harness made specifically for hunters, consider a Tree Spider harness. Tree Spider manufacturers understand that many hunters will not use safety harnesses because they can be noisy, uncomfortable and interfere with their hunting experience. They developed their harnesses to be quiet, comfortable and so easy to wear that a Tree Spider harness fits naturally and become second nature to hunters as part of their regular hunting gear. Their Outfitter™ Spider Web ™ is the first fully integrated safety harness built into hunting apparel. The soft fabric is 100 percent polyester brushed tricot Micro fabric that is quiet as well as comfortable. This Scent Blocker garment has adjustable shoulder straps, diamond gusseted crotch, climbing belt loops and a contoured and padded upper back panel. There are two pockets at the waist and two cargo pockets on the sides, all with zippered entry. A rear snap pocket, removable tether, carabineer and suspension relief strap are provided to complete the package. Put on your shirt, pull up your pants and shoulder straps, and you are harnessed and ready to hunt.

Tree Spider also produces the Recon™ Spider Web™ safety harness hunting apparel, the Micro harness and the Speed harness. The Micro Tree Spider harness is the industry’s only bungee tether and it is lightweight but shock absorbing. The Speed harness is very easy to put on: just slip into it, buckle only three times and then cinch it. You are ready.The contoured mesh back conforms to your body and you can adjust all the straps with just one pull. The Tree Spider® LiveWire® Descent System is the finishing touch.
