None taken mate. Just an observation from someone newish to the industrial safety world (working for SpanSet).

Not sure what you mean regarding the sit harness?? Guiding is a different animal all together. But you can get full body harnesses suitable for industrial rope access very similar to petzl versions that DO meet the aust standards from a number of manufactures, not just the one I work for. I actually had 3 or 4 laid out on the floor in front of me last week looking at the differences.
