Proper tethering solutions are now a requirement instead of a recommendation after the latest ANSI/ISEA 121-2018 Dropped Objects Standard. This means that it’s now more important than ever to make sure you and your fellow workers have the correct safety equipment while working at heights.
The best way to make sure your job site is compliant and keeping everyone safe is to shop from trusted industry leaders. Here are the brands we recommend:
