The three different kinds of fall protection are passive, fall restraint, and fall arrest. Fall prevention or passive protection prevents people from reaching the fall hazard by creating a barrier between the person and the fall hazard. Fall restraint prevents people from reaching a fall hazard through a tie-off system. Fall arrest stops a fall that is in progress through a tie-off system. See this matrix for a full description of how the different fall protection methods.

The fall protection products I purchased came very quickly, the next day. I had ordered very similar items from a different company with a lead time of 7 to 10 business days and Simplified was able to get me the same product the next day, right before the holiday so that I didn't miss my timeline.
If you cannot protect a hazard passively (guardrail, skylight screens, etc.), we then recommend working in restraint. Fall restraint means that the person is tied off in such a way that they cannot get to the roof edge or other fall hazards.
If restraint is not possible, then the last resort is fall arrest. Fall arrest products stop a fall that is already happening. Fall arrest can still be dangerous to the employee and requires diligent training and rescue planning.
