When putting on the fireman's work positioning belt, the belt itself is wrapped around the body and closed by pulling the webbing end through the alloy frame, going back with it through the two-pin buckle and hooking the metal inserts into this. After that the webbing end is pulling through and fixed by the fitted webbing loops. The belt has to fit the body tightly.
The belt is optional equipped with carabiners with screw locking devices or Twistlocks. The multifunctional eye on the carabiner snaphook of the fireman's work positioning belt is a special feature for fire brigades and is intended exclusively for use with trained personnel. This multifunctional eye is for guiding loads to upper or lower levels.
The fixed lanyard is used for work place positioning (positioning or restraint purposes) and attaches to the anchor point by a carabiner snaphook. The anchor point has to be at or above waist level and should bear a minimum load of 10 kN according to EN 795. In fall hazardous areas the lanyard must always be tensioned to limit the free room of movement to maximum 0,6 meters.
A fireman's work positioning belt is definitely not a full body harness. The positioning belt should be owned by the user individually and is only allowed to be used by seriously trained personnel.
