05. ROPES The ropes are linear devices that can block the worker in the case of a fall. They consist of a cut-resistant steel core with a cover; for professional use, semi-static ropes with a low elongation coefficient are used. These are different from blocking devices such as ropes and bands, which do not need to be as robust as they do not need to support all of the suspended worker's weight, but merely need to impede the worker from reaching an area with falling risks.
