Research overview:
The purpose of this study is to investigate the necessary properties of the guardrail for fall prevention of roofers. Especially, the suitable strength is mainly investigated. Some kinds of roads act on the guardrail, they are "an impact load when the roofer slides down and crashes to the guardrail", "static loads when the roofer works at materials handling operation", "the impact load from the safety belt", and so on. These loads are investigated by experimental studies. From the results of this study, the minimum necessary strength of the guardrail is cleared. Also, the maximum impact load which happens at the time when the roofer crashes to the guardrail and human tolerance relation is discussed, and then the suitable strength of guardrail is cleared.
