Even the smallest tool can create grave results if dropped from a height or high enough surface. For as long as the force of gravity has existed dropped objects have been a problem. According to gravity laws, there are two factors that affect an object's fall impact; the weight of the tool and distance of the fall. Accidental kicking or dropping any object can cause severe injuries and even fatalities. Direct fall or divergence contacts are the two modes of tool drop impact. There are more than 52,260 recorded incidents of people being struck by falling objects in the last recording period, according to OSHA. Many contractors do not take the necessary precautions to prevent fall-related injuries by providing workers with personal fall protection systems for both the workers and their tools. Our range of fall protection tools solutions is designed to prevent and control dropping tools when working at heights.GET A QUOTE
