dc.description.abstractFall arrest systems are regulated according to EN-363 to retain people safely after a free fall. It is causing any significant damage during the retention process. This study is a development in performance testing of fall arrest systems. It analyses the variables that affect the behaviour of the system: fall height and the absorbed energy by devices. In this research, several experimental tests on personal safety devices are carried out. These devices are tested statically and also by dynamic tests with different fall factor (fall height/rope length) following the standards EN-354, 355, 362, 363 and 364.es_ES
