TEXT VERSION OF SLIDE:

    Title: Personal Fall Arrest System Full Body Harness
    Type: Text and Image Slide
    Content:

    • A full body harness distributes the force of the fall over the thighs, pelvis, waist, chest and shoulders.
    • Body belts have not been allowed as part of an arrest system since January 1998.
    At the bottom left is slide number 38.

    At the bottom right is OSHA's logo.

    [Includes image of a mannequin wearing a full body harness.]

    Speaker Notes:

    A full body harness is designed to minimize the impact on the body during a fall by distributing the force of the fall over the entire torso.

    And remember, body belts have not been allowed as part of an arrest system since Jan 1998. They can still be used as part of a fall restraint system and well cover that in just a few moments.
