Fall Restraint Or Fall Arrest?
There are two types of fall protection equipment: fall restraint and fall arrest.
Whenever you are at risk of falling, you should use a full-body harness fall arrest system. Talk to your supervisor to make sure you are using the correct equipment.
A full-body harness has straps that pass over the shoulders, around the legs and across the chest. At the back is a D-ring located between the shoulders which is used to hook the harness to a lanyard. This way, when a worker’s fall is arrested or stopped, the shock of fall arrest is distributed throughout the upper body, lessening the possibility of serious injury.
