    If the inertia reel has a steel cable a webbing strop should be between the 'D' ring of the harness and the inertia connector.

    Me, id clip on to the Standard, if there was no other way of doing it.

    To be fair, the guys should have not only Inertia Reels, but also a decent rescue plan in place, because if rescuing someone whos fallen from an Independent can be tough - imagine trying to do so, from a Hanger that they just dropped onto and there were no Boards on it yet.

    Nigh on impossible.

    The standard procedure would be to use a fall retriever block until the lowest lift on a dropper was fully boarded and guardrailed.

    As Simian said, you could then work your way back up, building the intermediate lifts using the safety step to achieve an AGR.

    As any operation involving working at height, you'd need a fall prevention plan, fall recovery plan and a fall recovery risk assessment.
