The task of the article is to assess the effect made by an industrial climbing safety system used by an industrial climber, performing his work to provide a harness-based suspended access at low ambient temperatures, on his physiological parameters. The article presents some studies on changes recorded in body surface temperatures, pulse rates, and blood pressure value in an industrial climber depending on the duration of his performance using a harness-based suspended access under ambient air low temperature conditions. The tests have been carried out for various types of thermal protection of the human hip area and the width of the belts of the safety system. The scientific novelty of the study is that it is the first time when such a study has been conducted for a combination of industrial factors, like prolonged suspended condition due to the utilization of the climbing safety system and a low ambient temperature. As a result, it has been found that the physiological parameters are influenced by the width of the safety belts of the safety equipment system and the method of the temperature protection of the hip zone in a climber.
