On any job site, safety should be a top priority. There are all kinds of different regulations in place to keep job sites as safe as possible, from policies on using power tools to handling chemicals safely.

 

What about the damage caused by falling tools? This often-overlooked scenario can cause both serious injury and costly damage to equipment and the tools themselves. 

 

This is where tool tethering comes in.

 

The process of tool tethering has many different options available, everything from DIY methods (which we don’t recommend) to more professional tether-ready tools. When to tether your tools is also another question we’ve previously answered. The next question is: With all of these tethering options available, why choose Tanner as your solution? 

 

Before we dive into what makes Tanner the best solution, we should first discuss why you should be tethering your tools.

 

Why You Should Use Professional Tool Tethering

The benefits of professional tool tethering have been covered throughout various articles we’ve written, including the differences between professional tool tethering and other less secure methods. 

 

However, as an overview, here are a few of the main reasons why professional tool tethering is not only beneficial but should be a necessity on the job site:

  • Injury prevention - Even objects weighing less than a pound can become a serious safety hazard when falling from extreme heights, and in some cases can cause fatalities. Tool tethering prevents this scenario and ensures your job sites are as safe as possible.
  • Minimize costs from broken tools or equipment - Falling tools aren’t only a hazard to other workers. Even with no one else around, a tool falling onto vital equipment can be a costly mistake if the equipment below or the tool in question ends up damaged and needs replacing. 
  • Remain compliant with regulations - OSHA regulations dictate that companies doing work at height need a tool tethering system in place. And for good reason: 241 deaths caused by falling objects or equipment were recorded by the US Bureau of Labor in 2019 alone. Companies could face serious penalties should these regulations not be followed.
