Excuses for the tree branch in the top corner

At first sight I thought he wasn't wearing a safety line but there is a yellow line lying in front of him Can't see where it is attached to though They are working near the top as you can see in the shot below
The PTFE/glass membrane facade totaling some 30,000 square metres provides one of the significant architectural features of the stadium The facade completely wraps the whole perimeter of the stadium and is supported from some sixty vertical trusses with a series of horizontal fins within the individual membrane fields.
