The Ontario government is about to release new standards  for Working at Heights & Fall Prevention.  Is it really that important to make sure you are 100% tied off at all times?  How about these facts and stats from the province.  

  1. 17,000 lost-time injuries due to falls annually
  2. 65% of all fall related injuries are from the same level
  3. 1 in 5 lost time injuries are fall related
  4. 20 people die in Ontario every year because of falls
  5. One worker is injured every 20 minutes due to a fall.

I think you will agree the stats speak for themselves.  If you have not already had Working at Heights training, get it.  It could literally be a matter of life and death.
