I'm a theatrical lighting designer wear a fall arrest harness while climbing in trussing.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I can't find a calculation method for determining the weight put on the anchor point in the event of a fall.

I weight 160 lbs. my lanyard is 6 feet long. It has no shock absorber so I would come to a very sudden and complete stop.

Is there a method of calculating the weight of the shock load of arresting my fall?

Thanks,

Cruise
