Type: Text and Image Slide
Fall restraint can be a body belt or full body harness.
Must be tied off so that the worker cannot go past the unprotected side or edge, no matter where the work is on the walking/working surface.
Lanyards should be adjustable to take up slack when workers move about.
At the bottom left is slide number 45.

Personal fall restraint is used mainly for edge work. It can sometimes be difficult to keep the proper slack, and is not used for most residential roofing work.
