For the safety-conscious company working at height. A review and highlight of the key requirements in dropped objects prevention, including:
Each year, approximately 28,000 injuries are caused by falling objects – the leading nonfatal occupational cause of injuries requiring hospitalization. Dropped objects threaten workers’ lives and cost businesses thousands of dollars in labor hours and repair costs. Tool tethers help increase safety and reduce the costs associated with injuries from dropped objects. With the new ANSI/ISEA 121-2018 standard, there now is a clear way to ensure all tool tethering products on your site meet the same design, performance and testing criteria.
Join Ty-Flot for a webinar discussing the importance of the new ANSI/ISEA 121-2018 standard and learn how working at height just got safer. We’ll discuss categories that the new standard covers, as well as what this means to you as an individual working at height. Make sure you are prepared for compliance and learn how to get involved with next-generation safety at heights. Sign up today.
