The selection of your lanyard is as important as the proper selection of your full-body harness. Lanyards should be kept as short as possible to reduce the possibility of serious injury. OSHA mandates that free fall distances not exceed 6'. An energy absorber should be part of a fall arrest system whenever possible, in order to ensure that forces incurred during a fall are less than the OSHA limit of 1,800 lbs.
