Abstract

Personal protective equipment PPE are the last mean for a worker to protect himself. A PPE bad selection leads to refusal or jeopardizing the equipment. The active/passive criterion results from the users’ obligation to act (active) or do not act (passive) to make the PPE effective. Rebars are steel round bars used to reinforce the concrete. They are placed and tied in vertical walls manually. 3 fall arrest systems were evaluated: (1) a fixed length lanyard dorsal attachment, (2) a fixed length lanyard sternal attachment and (3) a self-retracking (variable length) lanyard dorsal attachment with a fixed anchor at the top of the wall. System 3 is preferred because it causes the least interference with the task and is the less active one. Their preference is now explained by the active-passive concept.
