A
Show me the Answer
Correct answer is:
  • (C)  The center of their backs near shoulder level or above their heads
Explanation:
OSHA mandates that employees with authority to enter a permit space should wear a chest or full body harness. The harness should have a retrieval line attached to the center of the workers’ back near their shoulder level or above their heads. Wristlets, in place of chest or full body harnesses may be used if the employer can show that the latter is not viable or poses a greater danger.
