A safety harness is a form of protective equipment designed to safeguard the user from injury or death from falling. The core item of a fall arrest system, the harness is usually fabricated from synthetic webbing.
A safety lanyard is a worker's link to a fall protection anchor point. This short length of webbing or cable typically attaches to the D-ring of a worker's safety harness and can have a shock-absorbing feature, or simply is attached as a lifeline.
Safety harness accessories attach to or are used with safety harnesses to modify the functions or intended applications of the harness, to add extra safety features to the harness, or to provide comfort or convenience to people wearing the harness.
