Session 5 – Don’t Drop That!
On Wednesday, June 23, 2021 Allie Thunstrom, Field Product Specialist for Ergodyne conducted Session 5 of the NATE UNITE 2021 Educational Series titled “Don’t Drop That”. This session focused on the hazards associated with dropped-objects at job sites and how companies can best incorporate safety measures to mitigate these dangerous scenarios. With nearly 10,000 struck by injuries occurring annually in Canada alone, there continues to be a trend towards dropped objects prevention and safe objects-at-heights management. This movement was recently formalized by the development and release of ANSI/ISEA 121-2018, The American National Standard for Dropped Object Prevention Equipment. With this long-overdue safety revolution comes questions and a need for guidance on how to implement a dropped objects component to your safety program.
