Typically workers have some form of fall protection in place to ensure their own safety while tasks are executed at height. However the equipment and materials they use at height can also pose risks.
In a previous blog we talked about the dangers of falling objects. Now we would like to dive into the subject of securing tools while working at height.
Working at height almost automatically means working with equipment, from a simple wrench to heavier power tools such as drilling machines. But everything that is brought to height has the potential to become a hazard. After all it only takes a moment of unawareness to lose your grip on something and for gravity to do its work. And the higher you are, the harder the drop.
