HOW DO YOU PREVENT DEATHS IN CONSTRUCTION SITES?
The ever-changing environment in construction sites is a dangerous place to have a career. Safety procedures are set in place but are often overridden because they slow down the working pace. How can we create a safe environment that supports and complements the duress of a construction site work culture?
A SHUTTLE THAT ALLOWS WORKERS TO BYPASS EACH OTHER ON CABLES
Studying products that enable safe and efficient movement at elevated heights, students designed a simple shuttle that clamps onto lifeline ropes ensuring safety. The purpose of the design is to allow two shuttles to bypass each other through a simple geometric rotation as workers move across the line. This would follow as a replacement to products such as harnesses, retractable lanyards and stanchions. This simple tool could be included easily into the existing lifeline system, which includes a host of other tools required for construction.
