“Lighten up.” It’s what at-height workers have been trying to do for decades. That’s why we created the DBI-SALA® ExoFit™ Strata™ safety harness. It features a first-of-its-kind load distribution system that literally takes the weight off workers’ shoulders, resulting in a harness that is more comfortable, cooler and lighter to wear.
Climb ladder safety systems with ease and confidence. It’s simple with the new DBI-SALA® Lad-Saf™ X3 3/8" (9.5mm) detachable cable sleeve. This portable connection device connects the worker's harness to the ladder cable and glides freely up and down the cable as the worker climbs.
When seconds matter, you need a fall rescue plan that’s fast and effective—all while minimizing risk for others. Make self-rescue your first option with the DBI-SALA® Self-Rescue. It easily connects to your current safety harness and provides a way of escape from suspension. Coming soon.

May 4, 2015 OSHA issued a final rule that applies to all construction workers in confined space. Training must be provided to each employee whose work is covered by the new rule.
For all objects at height - including humans - the focus always should be on preventing things from falling rather than on catching objects, or on limiting the damage after they fall.
Now through November 2016, training classes are available on select dates in the Chicago Metro in Orland Park. Get comprehensive training, with practical, hands-on experience meeting OSHA and ANSI standards.
The afternoon of Wednesday, October 7th, 2015 would have been like any other work day for journeyman ironworker Rex Godsey, were he not suspended in the air, hanging by a single lanyard attached to the Sam Houston Ship Channel bridge in Houston, Texas.
