This article deals with a dynamic simulation of the movement and fall of persons working at a height, using the rope belaying system. The input data, which are necessary for a created simulation model, were obtained from experimental measurements realised from the concrete belaying system. The simulation analyses were performed for three different values of the rope pre-load level. Consequently, the outputs from the simulations presented in this article were applied in a real design proposal of the rope anchoring arrangement for a horizontal belaying system.
