Abstract
For the construction industry, especially the roofing industry, slips/trips and falls have the highest incident rate leading to an injury and fatality. This study investigated the eye movement and postural sway patterns of industrial workers (n=48) with various work experience (months of work experience on inclined surfaces), fatigue conditions (none, half and full), visual cues (none, H cue), tasks (stationary, reach) and surface inclinations (0, 14, and 26 degrees). Eye movement variables of length and area of movement as well as fixation data and postural sway variables of area and length were significantly affected (p
