The system consists of two or more anchor points at the main structure, to which a cable is attached at one end. At the other end, the cable is connected to the body harness or belt. This is what prevents an individual from falling from a great height in case they misstep or fall, as the fall is arrested by the lifeline and lanyard. Read More
