STOP THE DROP
Being hit by a falling object was number 4 on the list of fatalities in the Australian workplace in the 10 years leading up to 2016, according to Safe Work Australia.
It may seem that a light tool may not cause a great deal of damage. However, a 3kg hammer, dropped from 500 metres high will hit the ground with a force of 500kg! So, do you still think your hard hat will protect you?

Are you carrying hazardous items?
Ever thought of your pen or phone as being a hazard? Well, they are if they’re dropped from height or into sensitive machinery and equipment. If these items are not safely restrained, it could cost your company millions of dollars and can cause possible injury, and/or death.
It is better to be proactive then reactive when it comes to safety. Make sure you keep the hierarchy of control’s in mind.
