Abstract

Rebar installers are exposed to fall hazard when installing reinforcing steel bars (rebars) in walls. They shall use fall arrest system composed of a harness and a connecting link. 4 combinations, 2 connecting links (lanyard with energy absorber or self-retracting lanyard SRL) and 2 attachment points on the harness (dorsal or sternal) were evaluated for their perceived comfort and safety by 12 subjects while doing prescribed tasks in walls. All combinations were comfortable and safe. No statistical differences were observed between the dorsal and the sternal attachment point. For the global appreciation and the rank, the 1,5m lanyard with an energy absorber is preferred to the selfretracting lanyard.
