    Also, in regards to OSHA standars, if you fall under construction CFR, then above 6feet you need fall arrest, if you fall under General Industry, its 4 feet. If you are on a ladder that is properly secured and placed, OSHA doesnt require fall arrest unless the ladder is a permanent installation (on tower or side of building).
     
    JonJon78 Thanks this.

    Most are rated for 350 to 400 pounds for the user, on the overhead systems.

    Some systems use a combination of the overhead system and the harness. The overhead reel locks fairly quickly. The harness has straps coiled inside. They uncoil as they get loaded from the fall force.
    They say that this style is supposed to be “gentle” on the user.

    One thing I have learned, it was years ago and stayed with me. When you fall through the air, ain’t nothing to grab onto.

    Friendly word of advice: learn how to properly wear one of those harnesses. You really don't want your manhood "de-gloved" if you fall.

    At a minimum, buy a shock absorbing lanyard. It'll cut down the arresting forces significantly if you were to fall. Self-retracting are the best but are a bit spendy.

    Definitely,
    I should have had some kind of restraint on when this happened. Last time I try to jump a barbed wire fence!!
