Podcast Episode 4 - Dropped Object Prevention
Did you know every 10 minutes a worker is injured in a dropped object accident?
In this podcast episode, Tony and Bill have an in-depth chat on the growing rate of dropped object accidents and ways to prevent it with Matt Moreau, Product Manager - Dropped Tools for TY-FLOT Stronghold product line. In the last 5 years, labor safety administrations have increased standards and required organizations to meet them to prevent accidents at the job site.
In conjunction with identifying fall hazards, Tony defines walking-working surfaces and the importance of enforcing fall prevention solutions. Raising awareness is a step in the right direction. It could be achieved by outlining the most common slipping and tripping surface hazards that could potentially cause injuries or even loss of life.
