Probably the most important item at the time of order is an intangible that 
cannot be purchased on-line: Proper training and use of the harness.  I am 
amazed at the number of folks who will purchase a full-body harness, not 
knowing the first safety-related issue before they ascend a tower.

I routinely draft contracts on behalf of my commercial clients with the 
stipulation that unless a contracted worker has been put through recognized 
tower training and rescue course (e.g., Comtrain), they are unauthorized to 
touch a tower and its components.   You cannot completely buy your way into
