What is the Best Harness for Use on a Cherry Picker?

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.

Fall Restraint Lanyards

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:

G-Force Lanyards

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.
