Tool Lanyards & Tool Tethering



Keeping workers strapped in and anchored is important, and so is proper tool tethering. A falling tool can really do some damage. Dropped object prevention is a best practice, complete with its own standards and regulations. In 2018, the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and the International Safety Equipment Association (ISEA) released the Dropped Object Standard, ANSI/ISEA 121-2018. The standard establishes minimum design, performance, and labeling requirements for product solutions that reduce dropped object incidents in construction. The standard also focuses on preventative solutions used by workers to mitigate these types of hazards. Follow the ‘3 Ts’ to keep your tools and equipment from falling and talk to us about how the standard can apply to your project.
Trapping

Most tools do not come with an anchor point, so trapping involves retrofitting existing tools with a solid anchor. The tools must them be attached to fixed point that can support its weight.
Tethering
 
Attaching your trapped tools to the anchor point with an approved retention device is tethering. Wrist lanyards secure to the wrist and can support light tools. Use Coil, Retractable, or Traditional lanyards when tethering heavier tools. Remember, always tether any tool over 5 pounds to an object, not a worker.
Topping

This refers to the hoist buckets and bags that hold tools and equipment when working at heights. They contain connection points to safely attach tools using carabiners, snap hooks, D-rings, etc. They also come equipped with top enclosures to secure contents.
