    Title: Personal Fall Restraint System
    Type: Text and Image Slide
    Content:

    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.

    At the bottom right is OSHA's logo.

    [Includes two images, the left image of a body belt and the right image of a mannequin wearing a full body harness.]

    Speaker Notes:

    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.
    • Fall restraint can be a body belt or full body harness.
    • Must be designed so that the worker can not go past the leading edge, no matter where the work is being done.
    • The lanyard should be adjustable to take up slack when workers move around to perform their jobs.
