Part of: Preparing for Construction in the 21st Century


The purpose of this paper is to review the current practices in the United States for both fall protection and debris protection during high rise construction. A performance comparison will be made by comparing the difference between active and passive protection and by comparing, in more detail, flexible and rigid passive protection structures. Furthermore, an attempt has been made to review the general approach to protection of other countries.
