  1. is there anything in writing that specifically states that if I am wearing my fall protection and either aloft on structure or in a crane basket, that I must have my equipment secured such as using tools at height. I want to be able to get tools at height kit from my employer but I need something in writing that states that. I work above many sailors as I do a lot of work on the ships mast. I am always afraid of dropping something and possibly killing one.
