New Live Wire Harness In conjunction with the electrical industry, QSI has been developing a new harness the ‘Live Wire’ over the last two years. The Live Wire is a revolutionary new harness designed for linesmen and tower workers. It is the combination of two years of hard work drawing from three of our best harness designs. The unique design helps eliminate suspension trauma when the user is suspended from the front D-ring or side pole strap

We are also New Zealand’s first IANZ Accredited Height Safety Laboratory which allows us to test and certify height safety gear to AS/NZS 1891.1:2007, AS/NZS 1891.3 and AS/ NZS 5532 standards. This means every product we make has been tested to the strictest standards and having our own testing facility on site gives us the unique opportunity to take our products to the limit multiple times throughout our development processes, rather than relying on fewer, more expensive tests in foreign labs. This allows us to identify and quickly solve problems, which in turn reduces research and development costs resulting in better and affordable pricing for our products. Not only does QSI offer Height Safety equipment, but we also offer a diverse range of other products: • First Aid and Emergency Kits • Spill Absorbent Products • Industrial and Specialised Fire Retardant Clothing • Respiratory Products • General Medical and Safety Products • Signage QSI has been designing and man-

Innovation Being a height safety manufacturer allows QSI a unique and innovative opportunity to work with local industries to research and develop new products to suit the needs and requirements of workers. Other height safety companies who strictly import finished products are limited in what they can offer and many times the user will have to choose what’s best from their range, rather then what’s best for their needs. QSI understands that workers within each industry have a unique job to do and we can go the extra mile to coordinate, develop and manufacture products tailored to their exact requirements. We like to take a proactive approach when discussing and developing our products with customers in finding out how we can further support them and areas we can grow and expand into. With such a philosophy this allows us to consistently expand, develop, find solutions and constantly improve.
