This article was originally published in February of 2020 in Modern Contractor Solutions magazine. Working at height can be a risky business. According to U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, “more than 1000 construction workers die every year while on the job.”i U.S. OSHA reported, “Falls are the number one cause of fatalities in construction. Falls cause one of every three construction worker deaths. These falls happen in a split second while workers are on roofs, scaffolds, ladders, bridges, and other work surfaces.”ii That’s why many personal fall arrest systems rely on lifeline materials to perform in hazardous conditions where falls
