Arborists are cutting branches of trees. Work methods and work positioning systems were reviewed to increase the fall protection without increase the burden of the work. Experimental evaluations were done to measure the efficiency, the reliability and the user-friendliness of several individual work positioning systems and several fall arrest systems. The efficiency and the reliability were evaluated by mechanical tests done in laboratory. The user-friendliness evaluations by arborists were performed in controlled environment in urban forests and parks. Their psychophysical perceptions and their opinions were collected with questionnaires and semi-directed interviews. For harness, 5 sub protocols were executed. The sit harness was the reference and the full body harness identified is as comfortable as the sit harness with an increase in safety and comfort.
