There is a risk of preventing energy absorber deployment in a fall.

With a Y-lanyard attached to the dorsal point, if the user passes the lanyard legs under his arms to use the connectors in front of him, he may find himself in position that prevents the energy absorber from functioning.

Note: this can also happen if the lanyard is connected to the harness sternal point and used behind the user.
