Falling or dropped objects pose risks to people in workplaces of all kinds, and are especially dangerous on industrial and hazardous area sites. Equipment, material, tools and debris that can fall or be released sideways or upwards are considered falling objects.

Examples of falling or dropped objects include:

  • Objects falling from a structure, including scaffolding, tools, rocks, soils and bricks
  • Objects falling from lifting machinery, a vehicle or other plant equipment
  • Objects or material ejected while using machinery or hand tools

In partnership with Dropsafe, Teksal Safety provides dropped object prevention solutions, including:

  • Dropsafe Barrier – Barrier system for guardrailing and stairways for permanent and temporary installations
  • Dropsafe Nets – Safety nets that enclose and tether overhead fixtures
  • Dropsafe Pouches – Safety nets attached to the user, which securely enclose and tether handheld items used at height
  • Dropsafe Barricades – An access prevention system allowing good signage display and housekeeping measures
