Abstract
The risk of fall in height represents the major cause of accidents in the construction sector, both nationally and internationally. One of the most effective measures to prevent this risk is the use of Temporary Edge Protection Systems (TEPS). Nevertheless, it results significant that the regulations governing this type of protection differs considerably from country to country both in the geometric and mechanical requirements. In this paper, after a review of international standards relating to TEPS have been obtained analytically the dimensions of TEPS using the most significant standards comparing the obtained results.
