When working at height on a Mobile Elevating Work Platform (MEWP) like a cherry picker, it's important that you wear the right kind of fall protection equipment to keep you safely restrained within the basket.
Cherry pickers are a type of MEWP that can be moved in all directions to provide access to hard-to-reach places. It's recommended that you wear a harness so that a short or adjustable lanyard can connect you to the designated harness attachment point within the cherry picker basket.
The lanyard keeps you restrained within the cherry picker basket at all times while still allowing enough room to move around and work as necessary. Before choosing fall restraint equipment for your cherry picker, make sure you've carried out a full risk assessment.
Here are a few Lanyards that we would recommend for use on a cherry picker:
On the left is our adjustable restraint lanyard with screw gate karabiners available in 1mtr, 1.6mtr, and 2mtr lengths. It has sewn end terminations and plastic thimble eyes making it durable and lightweight. Its adjustable buckle allows the user to shorten or extend to suit to the specific size of the MEWP basket, ensuring the worker is kept in restraint at all times.
On the right is our adjustable restraint lanyard with scaffold hook and screw gate karabiner. This model is supplied in a 2mtr length and has a captivated scaffold hook.
If you're looking for a complete cherry picker safety harness and lanyard kit, we have just the thing for you! Below you can see our Safety Harness Kit For Access Platform/Cherry Picker Restraint that comes with everything you need to work at height safely in a cherry picker.
It features the P10 Full Safety Harness and a GFLB100 Rope lanyard that's fitted with a GFAZ011 Steel Karabiner. This kit is completely adjustable and features hard-wearing webbing and strong steel buckles to keep you safe and secure at all times.
We are a member of IPAF (The International Powered Access Federation) and the above kit meets the requirements of their code of practice - so you know you're in safe hands when you put this harness & lanyard on!

When working on scaffolding there is a significant fall risk that you need to be aware of. Every scaffold worker knows that having the right safety equipment is important before you make a start on a job. There are all kinds of harnesses on the market, it can be hard to know which one is the right option for your work scenario. Don't worry, we're here to help!
Generally, the best harnesses for scaffolders are lightweight and don't restrict movement. Often, the best place to connect a worker to the scaffold is behind them. This way, any ropes or lanyards will be kept well out of the way.
Here are our recommendations if you're looking for the best harness to use on scaffolding.

The work positioning belt gives additional support to the worker and makes the overall working environment safer. We'd definitely recommend looking at this safety harness if you'll be working on scaffolding in the near future!

These elasticated shock-absorbing lanyards come with scaffold hooks, making them incredibly easy to use. We find these are some of the best lanyards for use on scaffolding because the elasticated webbing prevents the webbing from trailing around and becoming a trip hazard. Features like this are incredibly useful when you're working at height for prolonged periods of time. We'd recommend using these lanyards with our P34EL and P50 scaffold safety harnesses.

This kit comes complete with everything you need to work on scaffolding safely. The harness included in the kit is our popular P10 Full Safety Harness which can be fully adjusted to fit your chest, upper and lower body comfortably. This harness is ideal for use on scaffolds because it features a back dorsal anchor point. This means you can work and move your arms freely without your lanyard getting in the way.

This is another great scaffold harness kit option if you want to buy all your equipment in one go! The harness included in this kit is the P11 2-Point Full Safety Harness. Again, this harness can be adjusted to fit your body snugly, it's comfortable to wear and easy to put on.

So, now you know which harnesses are the best for use on scaffolding, we thought we'd share some other useful equipment with you. This AY053 tool lanyard can be used to secure heavy tools like drills, grinders and chainsaws to your harness so that they aren't at risk of falling from the scaffolding. The elasticated webbing is 1.3mtrs in length, this provides you with enough space to use your tools and the reassurance that they won't fall if dropped.
