Work­shop Safety

The Australian Mining Review - - CONTENTS -

FALL­ING ob­jects are a ma­jor cause of lost time in­juries and fa­tal­i­ties in the global min­ing in­dus­try.

For more than 20 years, Drop­safe’s in­no­va­tive prod­ucts have become the stan­dard for se­cur­ing over­head fix­tures in the re­sources sec­tor; one of the world’s most hos­tile and haz­ardous work­ing en­vi­ron­ments.

Prod­ucts such as patented mesh-se­cu­rity so­lu­tions are safety de­vices that se­curely en­close and tether over­head fix­tures to pre­vent fall­ing ob­jects.

The nets are de­signed and tested to fit a va­ri­ety of fix­ture types in­clud­ing flood lights, strobe lights, speak­ers, CCTV cam­eras, and pipe clamps and junc­tions boxes.

Other prod­ucts in­clude Drop­safe bar­ri­ers to pre­vent tools fall­ing through open guard rail­ings and el­e­vated work plat­forms; Drop­safe pouches to se­cure hand­held items while work­ing at height; and Drop­safe pad­locks with a se­cu­rity ca­ble to en­sure pad­locks are kept safe at height.

The adop­tion and stan­dard­i­s­a­tion by in­dus­try of Drop­safe prod­ucts re­flect the com­mit­ment from cus­tomers and high­light the im­por­tance of work­place safety.
