Resumen The most frequent type of accident in quarries is those involving vehicles, accounting for approximately 40% of all accidents. Various industry standards have been implemented in the United Kingdom, including those applying to all-round visibility from vehicles, edge protection and brake testing, in order to reduce the number of casualties. The effectiveness of restraint systems is considered as the next step to achieving further safety improvements. In this study, current standards and practices of several countries were firstly reviewed. Next, a range of accident conditions were simulated using human body numerical models that were evaluated against data from full scale tests. Findings are discussed. Restraint of the torso was shown to provide additional benefits over the current lap belts.
