Design of Commercial/Industrial Guardrail Systems for Fall Protection
This online engineering PDH course will introduce you to the principles of designing or evaluating guardrail systems in commercial/industrial applications for fall protection. Whether in construction or general industry, a structural engineer may be called upon to design a new guardrail system or to evaluate the adequacy of an existing guardrail system in accordance with the codes of the local jurisdiction. The design of a simple guardrail system has become more complicated as there is no single guardrail design that will work for all situations. There are different functional Code requirements depending upon the local jurisdiction and the design engineer must interpret the latest version of these regulations and Codes and apply them to specific applications.
This course provides a procedure for designing or evaluating guardrail systems in commercial/industrial applications. A selection of published methods, tables and charts from industry manuals, manufacturer's engineering data, and codes are provided as a source of design information and criteria for guardrail systems. This course includes a design example for better understanding of the subject matter.
This 2 PDH online course is intended for all engineers, architects and construction professionals who are interested in gaining a better understanding of guardrail systems, their Code requirements, and how they are designed.
This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
- Understanding the code requirements for guardrail systems in commercial/industrial applications for fall protection
- Selecting guardrail elements based upon material and physical properties as well as environmental conditions
- Understanding load, stress and deflection relationships for guardrail systems
- Designing of posts under uniform and concentrated loading
- Designing of rails under uniform and concentrated loading
- Designing anchorage/fasteners for the base of the post
