  1. The debate on whether a harness is helpful or hurtful while using lifts is a very interesting one. At first I thought it was obvious that all workers who work at heights should wear harnesses, but the argument does bring up a valid point. With a harness on, the weight of a man going overboard could tip the lift, causing multiple injuries or deaths. Hopefully they find a safe way to protect workers without prohibiting movement, or risking more dangerous outcomes.
