Z259.11-F17 - Absorbeurs d'énergie individuels et cordons d'assujettissement
Ce document constitue la troisième édition de CSA Z259.11, Absorbeurs d'énergie individuels et cordons d'assujettissement. Il remplace les éditions antérieures, publiées en 2005 sous le titre Absorbeurs d'énergie et cordons d'assujettissement et en 1992 sous le titre Absorbeurs d'énergie pour dispositifs antichutes. Le but de cette norme est de prescrire des exigences visant la performance, la conception, la mise à l'essai, l'étiquetage et le marquage des absorbeurs d'énergie individuels...
Étude sur le vieillissement, la dégradation et la durée de vie des équipements de protection contre les chutes - cordes d’assurance
Ce projet porte sur l'effet des expositions prolongées aux intempéries sur les propriétés de certaines cordes d'assurance verticales, notamment sur leur résistance mécanique. Sept types de cordes ont été étudiés : kernmantle, multiline, polyamide, polyester, polyéthylène, polypropylène et polysteelMD. Les cordes ont été soumises au vieillissement accéléré en chambre environnementale en laboratoire et au vieillissement naturel statique (soleil et intempéries...
Z259.17-16 - Selection and use of active fall-protection equipment and systems
Effective abatement of fall hazards is complex, requiring skilled selection and assembly of equipment and systems. The chosen solutions need to be understood and properly used by workers, balancing protection from danger against the practical need to accomplish work. The optimal solution needs to consider the type of work, the frequency of access, the knowledge and skill of the workers, and many other factors. A solution that is effective for one situation can be cumbersome or even dangerous in another. Source:
Z259.2.2-14 - Self-retracting devices
This is the second edition of Z259.2.2, Self-retracting devices. It supersedes the previous edition published in 1998. The purpose of this Standard is to specify requirements for the classification, design, testing and marking, and instructions for use with self-retracting devices. Source:
Application of scaled world model for usability testing of fall arrest system in residential construction
Falls from heights in residential construction continue to be a leading cause of fatalities and severe injuries. Field studies are difficult to implement in residential construction, because companies are hesitant to allow observers on site to collect data while tasks are being conducted. Use of scaled world models has been recommended for experimental contexts that require high levels of ecological validity as well as internal (control) validity . In this project, we explored several attributes to design a scaled world model of residential roofing that would support controlled trials to evaluate...
Don’t Blow Fall Protection for the Wind Energy Industry
Vertical systems, harnesses, lanyards and climbing systems must be developed for the variety of fall hazards associated with tower construction, maintenance and rescue. The world is beginning to rely more on alternative energy, making wind power one of the largest sources of new electricity generation. As wind turbines begin to dot the landscape around the country, more workers will be required to install and service these structures. More workers on the job site means fall protection equipment designers and manufacturers must anticipate and address the unique challenges this growing industry demands...
Announcing new use and selection guides for personal fall protection equipment
Two new documents from ISEA will help protect workers whose jobs expose them to fall hazards. A Personal Fall Protection Equipment Use and Selection Guide provides practical, hands-on guidance for fall protection users and administrators in their selection, use, maintenance and inspection of fall protection equipment. A companion document addresses topics in fall protection on which manufacturers get frequent inquiries. Prepared by manufacturers in the ISEA Fall Protection Group, the use and selection guide describes the process of developing a corporate fall protection program, explains the components...
Evaluation of safety nets by experiment-RR835
Safety nets have become a common means of providing collective protection, particularly in construction, to mitigate the effects of falls where it is impractical to use temporary edge protection. The reason for carrying out the research was to explore issues where there was doubt/concern about the performance of safety nets and their attachments. This research evaluated the effectiveness of safety nets, as used in the UK, to identify the risk (if any) of premature failure, in less than ideal conditions that could occur in the use. A series of non-ideal loading conditions involving a range of variables...
ASSE Announces Revised Workplace Fall Protection Standard
of Safety Engineers (ASSE) recently announced the approval of a newly revised American National Standards Institute (ANSI) /ASSE Z359.0-2009 “Definitions and Nomenclature Used for Fall Protection and Fall Arrest” voluntary consensus standard. Source :
