Fall Protection Design

This facility has a rack assembly, over 30′ in height, with a trolley system, running along the entire length of the rack. To maintain employee safety, a fall protection system was required, running parallel to the trolley track. One requirement was that there would be no bolting or welding to the existing rack framing. A clamp design was therefore implemented. The existing rack assembly and the added track and connection details were verified under the impact loads of a worker falling, and found to be adequate.
