Two-point suspension scaffold with a PFAS (safety belt with a rope-grab attached to an independent lifeline). What's the difference between a safety belt and a full body harness?

Speaker Notes:

PFAS MUST meet the requirements of 29 CFR 1926.502(d). As of January 1, 1998, safety belts are not allowed as part of a PFAS.
