ANSI Z359.11-2014 Sternal Attachment
.2.2 Sternal.

The sternal attachment may be located as shown in Figure 4 and used as an alternative fall arrest attachment in applications where the dorsal attachment is determined to be inappropriate by a competent person and where there is no chance to fall in a direction other than feet first.
E3.2.2 See Figure 2(a) & 4. The sternal attachment element should be used only when the likely fall distance is not greater than 2 ft. When loaded at the sternal attachment to arrest a fall, the design of the FBH (full body harness) shall direct load through the shoulder straps supporting the user and around the thighs.

Multiple connectors may be attached to D rings on the harness provided that the connectors are compatible and the integrity of any fall protection system is maintained. Applications requiring multiple connectors to a D ring must be assessed for compatibility by and used under the supervision of a competent person.
Yates Gear permits the attachment of multiple positioning lanyards/straps to the lateral (side) D rings under the supervision of a competent person when the user is utilizing an appropriate fall arrest system.
