Comtrain LLC has some books that are fairly inexpensive in this topic.

As for the harness, you need to find something you're going to be
comfortable climbing in. If you have always used a belt, there are many
harnesses designed like a belt with an integrated PFAS (personal fall arrest

Here are a few affordable harnesses I recommend:

way-behind-schedule tower book which I'm hoping will  be out by Dayton in
