SPECIAL NOTE ON STERNAL ATTACHMENT OF LANYARD FOR FALL ARREST.
ANSI Z359.11-2014 Sternal Attachment
The sternal attachment may be located as shown in Figure 4, and used as an alternative fall arrest attachment in applications where the dorsal attachment is determined to be inappropriate by a competent person and where there is no chance to fall in a direction other than feet first.
E3.2.2 See Figure 2(a) & 4. The sternal attachment element should be used only when the likely fall distance is not greater than 2 ft.
