Self Rescue Harness (H11PRD)

The lightweight and unobtrusive Self Rescue Harness is an integrated harness system for self-rescue. In the event of a fall, the device lowers the user gently to the ground in a controlled descent. The whole rescue process only takes a few seconds due to the Latchways engineering in the backpack. The backpack contains:

  • Parachute type ‘rip cord’ that releases the descending system
  • Braking mechanism and spool, with a 20m cord that gently lowers the user to the ground
  • Standard harness that can be easily released allowing quick evacuation from the fall zone


All harnesses are to be inspected every 6 months (minimum) as required by AS/NZS 1891.4:2009. Saferight offers testing, tagging and inspection services.

  • The innovative design uses quality components and a limited number of moving parts, ensuring 100% mechanical integrity which is defined by the design standards the device meets and exceeds


  • The patented Latchways components have been designed to fit neatly into the backpack to ensure the worker can safely go about their daily work.
  • The backpack fits onto a harness so that it becomes part of everyday work wear for those who work at heights.
  • It is lightweight and unobtrusive, but also robust which ensures it can withstand the rigours of the harshest working environments.


  • Unlike other rescue devices, no specialist training is required, as the device is worn as part of a standard harness.
  • Activation is achieved by simply pulling the ‘rip cord’.
  • Once the ‘rip cord’ is pulled, the spool and its integral braking mechanism lower the user to the ground in a controlled descent.
