This episode’s theme is Harnesses. A harness is the apex of a fall protection setup. It is where all of your other equipment converges and is something that you have on for a large portion of the day. That means picking the right harness is extremely important.

- What to do if your harness fails inspection;
- How to properly retire a harness; and
- Harness inspection forms.
We’d also like to remind everyone that while this show is meant to be fun, entertaining, and informative it is not intended to replace proper, in-depth training. Manufacturer’s instructions must also be followed and reviewed before any fall protection equipment is used. And proper training should be received before operating any equipment or before climbing.
