RE: soil fall protection system

Have you asked the engineer?
You're using some unusual terminology. "Soil Fall Protection" sounds a lot like a retaining wall, but not exactly. I'd worry about erosion, guard rails and settling. And maybe that's what they're doing. 3 meters (10 ft. to me) is a pretty high road.
