Additional fall protection

Describes the use of an independent, additional suitable fall protection system in conjunction with a primary fall protection system. Typically, used during training to provide fall protection to participants as they learn to use fall protection equipment. Additional fall protection may sometimes be referred to as a “backup”. The additional fall protection system should be chosen in such a way that it will not hinder the exercise. Preferably this additional fall protection is not even noticeable by the participant. This means that a risk is identified and controlled to a lower level weighted against the effort, time and money needed to control it.
