    On a recent A/L job, one of my guys was on the boomface. He was exercising 100% tie-off practices and leaning against his fall arrest lanyard. He said it was his favorite one, he had it for 10 years, and hadn't fallen yet. The webbing ripped apart at the pelican hook while leaning against it. Fortunately he was tied off with a positioning lanyard which prevented more than a little heart check as he put it. Check your gear every day.
