14 Tips to Prevent Falling Objects Toolbox Talk

Objects falling from the sky and striking people can cause severe industrial injuries and deaths. Many people are killed every year by objects falling from the sky. Some of these fallen objects are construction materials, tools or equipment dropped by the sky god.

Many preventative measures involve implementing toe boards with mesh and wire-netting guardrails. These guardrails eliminate the potentially severe consequences of materials, tools and objects falling from elevated platforms or walkways.

How can we avoid objects that fall?

What precautions can be taken to prevent accidents? Work performed overhead requires extra care.

Before beginning a mission that requires an overhead view, use signs, barricades, and radio communication to announce the upcoming mission.

Avoid climbing ladders with tools or materials in tow by using a tool belt, a bucket holder or other means of carrying. Instead, opt for a line to help lift items up.

Ensure tools or materials are secure when hoisted before using a handling.

In order to prevent objects from falling off the scaffolding, add toe boards to construction platforms and the scaffolding.

Don’t toss useful objects or tools.

Ensure that the weight is equally distributed across both hands before lifting.

Material and tools should stay away from the edges of ladder rungs, platforms and windowsills.

Tools dropped out of pockets when people bend over or extend their arms.

Store materials and tools that aren’t in use on the highest shelf. Keep a clean work space on the overhead task by mastering proper housekeeping.

Before starting a job involving falling objects, make sure the area below is cleared. Post warning signs and rope off the area.

Before someone gets injured, find these hazards and fix them before you look away.

Avoid dropping objects by landing on your feet.

NOTE: Safety Talks are important HSE management tools, in addition, they have the function of instructing employees before starting their work activities.

IMPORTANT: The content is merely suggestive and designed for the reality of a theoretical service front. Thus, all Safety Talks are generic, so they must be adapted to the reality of the work fronts by the HSE professional (Safety, Environment, and Health) or leaders of the company or sectors. The responsibility of the Safety Talks is exclusively the person who will be carrying out the dialogue on the work fronts!!!
