Has anyone done much design related to fall protection.  The OSHA 
specification requires a force of 5000 lbs.  for the design of the fall 
protection supports.  The question I have is could you allow a one-third 
stress increase the same as done for wind for the design of the steel 
frame for a fall protection system?
