Practice the use your full-body fall arrest harness at ground-level in the presence of a responsible adult to experience the feel-ing of hanging suspended before using in a hunting environment. Failure to follow these instructions may result in serious injury or death!WARNING! Failure to follow the full-body fall arrest harness instructions could result in not being able to return to the stand and being sus-pended in a harness after a fall. If your hunting location is unknown by anyone and communication efforts are unsuccessful, you must have a personal plan for self-recovery/escape should you experience a fall. Prolonged suspension in a harness can be fatal. It is important to exercise the legs by pushing against the tree or doing other forms of continuous leg exercises to avoid blood pooling while being suspended. Varying degrees of physical fitness may require different plans for self-recovery/escape to avoid the effects of prolonged suspension. Have a personal plan and practice it in the presence of a responsible adult before leaving the ground. No one escape/rescue plan will work for every hunter, on every tree, in every circumstance. Only you can determine the best self-recovery/escape plan for your hunting situation and you must have a self-recovery/escape plan for your individual situation before leaving the ground. There is time to make a correct decision on what action to take if a fall occurs while wearing a full-body fall arrest harness. It is important to remember, DO NOT PANIC. You must only hunt from the ground when a suitable self-recovery/escape plan is absent. Failure to follow these instructions may result in serious injury or death!Several optional products/systems are available that offer self-recovery or self extraction from a fall when suspended in a harness. Some systems automatically descend the user while others allow user control. One of these products/systems can be considered for use as an additional safety precaution against prolonged suspension and suspension trauma. Be sure to follow the manufacturer s directions on the safe use of these ! A suspension relief device must be on your person and readily accessible while using your full-body fall arrest harness. These devices allow the user to relieve the load on the lower extremities if suspended in a harness and help maintain circulation in the legs, mitigate suspension trauma (blood pooling) or allow descent to the ground. Be sure to follow the directions on the safe use of any suspension relief device. Failure to follow these instructions may result in serious injury or death!WARNING! If you have a limiting physical and/or health condition that precludes and/or renders you incapable of self-recovery and/or a suit-able escape plan is not available, DO NOT hunt from heights above ground-level. Failure to follow these instructions may result in serious injury or death!WARNING! NEVER allow the full-body fall arrest harness lanyard to get under your chin and/or around your neck.
