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...
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...
