Any dropping object poses great danger. A tool falling from a considerable height endangers people’s lives and can also damage other objects. Falling tools will increase your cost of production, workers compensation claims and cost of new tools and equipment. Tool tethers are the most effective way of safeguarding your employees, their tools and the worksite in general.
Since the launch, there ANSI/ISEA 121 committee members like those of us at KEY-BAK PRO have seen the groundswell of enthusiasm about such an important safety standard, yet there are still obstacles preventing many safety professionals from launching their own tool tethering program.
