World record 2017 - 25 metric tons 103 km/h rockfall impact stopped!
October 16th, 2017: A 25-ton concrete block is thrown onto a rockfall protection barrier at the Geobrugg test site. The 30-meter-long and 7-meter-high net is installed vertically on a rock wall. The block with the weight of a heavy truck is released at a height of 42 meters and accelerates to 103 km/h. With a loud crash, it falls into the center of the net, which successfully stops the impact. This represents a world record. The magic mark of 10,000 kilojoules of impact energy in rockfall protection has been broken. Thus, Geobrugg's engineers have set a milestone in the mitigation of natural hazards. This video shows the making of the world record. 2017 benchmark data: - Free falling 43 m = 103 km/h - Impact energy 10000 kJ - 8.15 meters barrier deflection - 67 % residual barrier height More information on our website http://ow.ly/i7xB30g5njB See also the previous 8000kJ world record: https://youtu.be/oVmxMNsd54I

Protecting Truck Drivers From Falling into Open Pit Mines - Edge Protector
On open-pit haul roads on mine sites, to protect the truck drivers from falling over the edge of the road to the bottom of the pit, there is a pile of rock called a “rock bund” which delineates the road edge. The rock bund allows the driver to know that they are close to the edge and to back away. The problem with this safety measure is that it does not have the ability to stop an out of control truck from going over the edge to the bottom of the pit. Edge Protector is a modular cantilever wall that creates a vertical front face to a rock bund on the edge of an open pit ramp. The design of the Edge Protector means that trucks cannot easily drive over the bund. In a low angle collision they are deflected along the bund or in a head on collision the Edge Protector enables the truck to engage the soil force of the rock pile behind the bund, effectively slowing the truck. The Edge Protector not only saves money for the mine sites but it also ensures the safety for the truck drivers from critical injury or death. http://www.safescape.com/edge-protector-ep/

Rock Fall Monzonite RF540 Metatarsal Safety Boots With FREE Shipping
Why All the Fuss About Metatarsal Protection? If you’re an employee or contractor who's been asked to ensure that all staff on-site are wearing S3 metatarsal safety boots, here is a little information on how to procure the right safety boots. It’s not just insurance requirements, it’s a greater understanding of the impact of metatarsal injuries and how they can prove to be extremely debilitating to the sufferer that’s driving major companies to enforce greater safety requirements. With larger construction and engineering companies like Tarmac and Balfour Beatty requiring the implementation of metatarsal safety boots, it helps to understand exactly why you need to be protecting these fragile, vulnerable bones. Standard safety boots tend to protect just the wearers’ toes, but with the risk to metatarsal bones heightened on today's construction, engineering, mining and offshore facilities, employees and employers can’t risk the potential of a shortened career for the sake of a few pounds extra spent on safety footwear. An excellent example of a full protection boot is the Rock Fall Monzonite RF540 - Free shipping when you use coupon code BANANAS at https://gorillasafetyfootwear.co.uk/product/rock-fall-rf540-monzonite-composite-metatarsal-s3-safety-boot/. Monzonites provide 100% non-metallic S3 protection which includes toes, under-sole and of course, complete metatarsal protection. The boots also boast a 100% waterproof membrane, heat resistance to 300 degrees, abrasion-resistant stitching and an EVA shock-absorbing insole.

Rockfall | Yosemite National Park
Since the glaciers retreated around 15,000 years ago, rock fall has been the major force of change in Yosemite Valley. Geologists work to understand this force of nature in order to protect the millions of visitors who come here each year. Yosemite National Park covers nearly 1,200 square miles of mountainous terrain in the Sierra Nevada of California. From high peaks and deep canyons to ancient forests and quiet meadows, the diversity of the world is on display here. At Yosemite you can see the tranquillity of the High Sierra, the power of glaciers, giant sequoia groves, thundering waterfalls, clear streams and much more. Designated a World Heritage Site in 1984, Yosemite is also home to hundreds of wildlife and plant species. Two Wild & Scenic Rivers, the Tuolumne and Merced rivers, begin in the park and flow west to the Central Valley. Visitors experience the park's 800 miles of hiking trails and 282 miles of road. Visitors fall in love with the park's many waterfalls, specifically 2,425-foot Yosemite Falls that ranks as the tallest in North America, flowing down into the scenic Valley meadows. Hikers take notice of the enormous granite mountains from the 8,842-foot Half Dome to the 13,114-foot Mt. Lyell-Yosemite's tallest peak. Glaciers, which John Muir sought out in California as well as Alaska, add into the mix with the Maclure and Lyell still intact. "It is by far the grandest of all the special temples of Nature I was ever permitted to enter." —John Muir Animals: Yosemite supports more than 400 species of vertebrates, including fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds, and mammals. Overall, the park's widespread coniferous forests--with a relatively mild climate and a mixture of plant species--provide a lush habitat for animals to live. Wildlife species typically found include mule deer, black bear, bobcat, gray fox, mountain kingsnake, Gilbert's skink, white-headed woodpecker, brown creeper, spotted owl, and a wide variety of bat species. Black bears in Yosemite are active both day and night. Most bears that rely on natural food sources are active during the day. However, those that get food from people are often active at night, when they can quietly sneak around and grab unattended food. Plants: Move up or down in elevation and feel as though you are in another park. Vegetation changes from oak woodlands to chaparral scrublands to lower montane to upper montane to subalpine to alpine. Those who step into the alpine zone can see krummholz whitebark pines and perhaps a western juniper or mountain hemlock. Scientists study many individual plants, including the black oak, to understand its future challenges. TRAVEL & TOURISM Yosemite is open all year, though some areas of the park are inaccessible by car from approximately November through May due to snow. Distances and Driving Times From: San Francisco/Bay area (195 mi, 4-5 hours); Sacramento (176 mi, 4 hours); Reno & Lake Tahoe (June through October, conditions permitting, 218 mi, 5 hours/All year, 315 mi, 8 hours); Los Angeles area (313 mi, 6 hours); San Diego area (441 mi, 8 hours); Las Vegas (June through October, conditions permitting, 642 km, 8 hours / November through May, 797 km, 8-10 hours) Drivers can enter Yosemite National Park by several routes: From the West and Most Scenic: CA Hwy 140 This route is by far the most scenic drive into Yosemite National Park and the best way to go if you're visiting for the first time. It's open most of the time and passes through the towns of Mariposa and Fish Camp. It's also a popular route for people driving to Yosemite from the San Jose area. From the West: CA Hwy 120 Open most any time, this route goes through Oakdale and Groveland and is often used by visitors from the San Francisco Bay area and northern California. It passes through fruit and almond orchards, small agricultural towns, fruit stands and ranches in the rolling foothills before ascending sharply up the Priest Grade to Big Oak Flat and the old gold mining town of Groveland. From the South: CA Hwy 41 From US Hwy 99 at Fresno, Hwy 41 runs north and west toward Yosemite's South Entrance, which takes you through the towns of Oakhurst and Fish Camp and into the park near the Mariposa Grove of giant sequoias and Wawona. From the East: CA Hwy 120 and Tioga Pass To find out more about traveling this route, average opening and closing dates, check the guide to the Tioga Pass. From the East: Other Mountain Passes Other mountain passes that can get you across the Sierras near Yosemite include the Sonora Pass (CA Hwy 108), Monitor Pass (CA Hwy 89) and Ebbetts Pass (CA Hwy 4). Snow may also close these routes in winter, but they are sometimes open when Tioga Pass is still snow-clogged.

Ison Rock Ridge, VA: mining in the town of Appalachia, VA
America's Most Endangered Mountains - Ison Rock Ridge, VA Pledge to Help End Mountaintop Removal. Visit: www.iLoveMountains.org - - - COMMUNITY STORY - - - Just like the region that bears its name, the town of Appalachia, Virginia, is being threatened by new permits for mountaintop removal mining. Appalachia and nearby Andover are small communities in southwest Virginia. At one time these towns were nestled in the low-lying mountains of the region, but in the last decade or so mountaintop removal has destroyed areas all around them. Now they only have one mountain left. Ison Rock Ridge comes off of Black Mountain on the Virginia / Kentucky border and runs southeast toward the town of Appalachia. Its preservation is essential to the quality of life for the people in the community. Without it, residents lose an important ecosystem, and fear the destruction of their homes from landslides, as well as the contamination of their water from valley fill sediment. They also worry about disturbance from blasting and the resultant dust that often accompanys mountaintop removal mine sites. Though the federal permit for mining on the ridge was sent back to the Army Corps of Engineers by the Environmental Protection Agency for its failure to consider the cumulative environmental impact of many mountaintop removal mines in a concentrated area, residents fear that the mine may be allowed with only minor changes on the state level. According to the local environmental group Southern Appalachian Mountain Stewards (SAMS), the Ison Rock Ridge mine would destroy three miles of streams and fill nine valleys with more than 11 million cubic yards of rock and dirt. To support Pete and his community contact: Southern Appalachian Mountain Stewards (276) 565-1083 • www.samsva.org SAMS is committed to stopping the destruction of communities by surface coal mining and to help rebuild sustainable communities.
