When work at heights below the permanents cannot be accomplished by using a ladder, aerial lift, or scaffolding, (for instance, when hanging greenbeds or walking on the top of set walls), you must use fall arrest equipment. When you need to move long distances horizontally across the set, use a multiple rope grab system. Two or more rope grab set-ups will allow you to travel across the set without risking a swing fall. This equipment includes: a full body harness with self-retracting lanyards, vertical lifelines with rope grabs, tag lines, and a double D-ring extender.
Prior to working at height and using fall protection equipment, Southern CA IATSE employees are required to have passed the CSATF Safety Pass Course D – Fall Protection
