Dr. Nigel Ellis will present on "American worker handhold fall arrest at heights using Three Point Control."
This presentation is based on 10 years of work and a Ph.D. thesis by Justin Young, University of Michigan (now Dr. Young is at Kettering University MI). The results, says Dr. Ellis, “are surprising and question current OSHA trigger heights.”
In his talk, Dr. Ellis “redefines Three Point Control in hard numbers by design with the result of reducing reliance on the popular but loosely defined Three Point Contact,” he says.
Dr. Ellis says “vertical handholds are potentially catastrophic, and horizontal handholds of 1-1.25" diameter are satisfactory, which means always hold the rungs of a ladder.”
