A lifeline pendant around the neck of the patient is one way that a patient can communicate when he or she is facing any problem if he or she decides to self hoist. It is also important to lengthen the emergency stops and the lowering cords, and clamping the handsets in case it can easily be pulled out is a wise thing to do.
