Capital Safety / Python Safety

*Please Note: 3M has since acquired Capital Safety, two of the industry’s leaders in personal protective equipment and fall protection products now together as one powerhouse. Bringing together a history of innovation and excellence, 3M Fall Protection can now offer its customers access to the quality products, people and service of the trusted DBI-SALA® and Protecta® brands.*

Capital Safety has been the global leader in fall protection for quite some time now, they have been keeping workers safe and secure in some of the most extreme working environments. Even with the best Harnesses, SRLs, and Lanyards available workers around the world still can fall prey to one of the biggest dangers on the jobsite today, falling tools and equipment. To help combat this danger, Capital Safety has recently acquired Python Safety Inc., the leading provider of dropped object prevention solutions for tools and equipment. Together their goal is to bring home all workers safe and to expand the definition of fall protection to include tools and equipment.

Here at Tanner, we carry vast amounts of both Capital Safety and Python Safety Inc. products, they can all be quickly accessed in our Fall Protection and Tool Drop Prevention departments.
