New ANSI/ISEA 121-2018 Dropped Objects Standard Published

Cause of Fatal Work InjuriesGet Informed & Save Lives

For years now the leading causes of death on construction jobsites has been “Fall” & ” Stuck by Object” cases, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). With more than 50,000 “struck by falling object” OSHA recordable incidents every year, that calculates out to 1 injury caused by a dropped object every 10 minutes.

What is Addressed in this New Standard?Workers Struck By Objects

This standard establishes minimum design, performance, testing and labeling requirements for equipment solutions that reduce dropped objects incidents in industrial and occupation settings. Dropped objects include hand tools, instrumentation, small parts, structural components and other items that need to be transferred and used at heights.

Make the Change Today

It is highly recommended that all objects, whether they are people or tools, be protected from falls. OSHA now requires that if you work in an environment where there is a risk of falling objects, you must do the following:

• Secure tools and materials to prevent them from falling on people below
• Barricade hazard areas and post warning signs
• Use toe boards, screens on guardrails or scaffolds to prevent falling objects
• Use debris nets, catch platforms or canopies to catch or deflect falling objects

It is Your Responsibility

It is the responsibility of every safety manager, construction superintendent, overseer & worker to make sure they understand the dangers they face when working at-height. Fall prevention means preventing things from falling, whether they are people, tools or equipment. Having the proper knowledge and correct equipment will go a long way in keeping you and your fellow workers safe.PDF-box
