1. How do I "tie off" properly when on a ladder or a steep roof. I know that while at heights, on steep roofs, or doing any tricky ladder work window cleaners and roofers always tie off using a harnass. How is this done? What do I anchor the rope to? 2. What equipment is needed to do this. for an example of what i am reffering to it is clear that in the fourth picture down on this website "http://www.windowgang.com/s_pressure_cleaning.asp" the worker is tied to a rope which must be anchored somewhere.
