In November 2014, a 58-year-old man was killed after being struck in the head with a tape measure that had become dislodged from the belt of a worker on the 50th floor of a high rise construction project. The man wasn’t even directly underneath the falling tool. Rather, the  0.5kg tape measure fell nearly 500 feet, ricocheted off a piece of equipment about 15 feet from the ground, bounced once and struck the man’s head. He was just exiting his vehicle to make a delivery to the work site. The man, who wasn’t wearing a hard hat, was transported to the hospital, where he died later that day. A 500 gram tool falling from that height struck the ground traveling about 140 mph!

What’s your choice?

Do you know the importance of tethering your tools?

When you’re working with your feet off the ground, even an innocent tape measure that slips from your grasp or slides off your belt becomes a dangerous meteor plummeting to the job site below. After all, any object – however small – gains force as it accelerates downward as a result of gravity. Tethering tools will prevent unwanted and fatal injuries.

At Leachs we specialise in tool safety and supply a lot of large contractors with their tethered tool requirements.

Get in contact with us today to discuss your tool safety requirements.
