Tool Tethering & Dropped-Object Safety
Tool tethering and dropped-object products are load-rated to ensure that the attachment or lanyard can support the weight of the object and the force of the fall. Tool attachments connect to the tool to provide an attachment point. Attachment points for tool tethers are installed on the tool to create an attachment point to connect the tool to an approved anchor point, such as a belt or wristband. Anchor attachments are installed on structures or secured to workers to connect the tool tether. Tool tethers connect the tool attachment to the anchor attachment. Containers and bags are used to carry tools and equipment and can be used to hold parts.
