We all know that you need to wear seat belts when climbing high. There are still some differences between seat belts and seat belts.

1 Definition of seat belts

Personal protective equipment to prevent falling of workers at height or to hang workers safely after falling. According to their different types, they can be divided into pole-operated safety belts, area-restricted safety belts, and finally, the most commonly mentioned, drop-suspended safety belts.


2 Safety belts for surrounding poles

3 zone restriction seat belt

A safety belt used to limit the range of activities of the operator and avoid reaching the area where a fall may occur. The job category is marked as Q.


4 Falling suspension seat belt

When working at a height or when a person climbing a height falls, the safety belt is used to hang the worker safely. The job category is marked as Z.


Safety belts can be divided into safety belts, half-length safety belts, and full-body safety belts according to their composition.


Safety belt: Only use it in areas where there is no high risk of falling, such as area restrictions.

Half-length seat belt: also known as a three-point seat belt. It is a type of seat belt that only fastens the upper body. However, when a high fall occurs, the impact is all concentrated on the upper body of the human body, which cannot effectively cushion the body and cause internal organ damage. /Causes injuries to the waist. It is not recommended to be used as a high drop, but can be used as a regional restriction.


Full-body seat belt: This type of seat belt is also called a five-point seat belt. Compared with the half-length seat belt, there are two more bald lassos, which can effectively distribute the impact to the whole body and reduce the burden on the upper body. It can be used as a fence/area restriction/falling from a height for the operation with high risk of falling.


Safety belts need to have a lot of safety accessories (such as D-rings, safety ropes, speed differentials, anchors, safety lines), etc., in order to achieve the purpose of preventing people from falling from high.
