The Suspension Trauma Safety Strap was designed to help a worker overcome
the potential negative health impacts of suspension trauma (otherwise known as
Orthostatic Intolerance). This condition can occur when a person remains
suspended at height (after a fall) for even short periods of time. Suspension
in a harness may cause blood to pool in the veins of the legs which can result
in unconsciousness; if not rescued promptly, serious injury or death may occur.
OSHA requires that employers provide for prompt rescue of employees in the
event of a fall. The Suspension Trauma Safety Strap is designed to prevent
suspension trauma while a worker is awaiting rescue.
