Drops Cost. Guardian Saves.


Sep 29 2022

Guardian, the world’s largest independent height safety brand, is excited to announce the launch of a comprehensive dropped object prevention program into the Europe and International markets.  Over 40 of the most popular dropped object prevention items, including the patented Quick-Switch® Tool Transfer System, are now in-stock in the UK and include manuals in 27 languages. 

Dropped objects from height in a workplace can lead to significant costs through implementation of large, idle, exclusion zones, damage to equipment or tools, or lost time due to personnel injury or fatality. Guardian is committed to helping businesses minimize these costs and risks. 

Isabel Ferreira, Guardian’s Head of Product – International, states, “A comprehensive dropped-tool prevention programme significantly increases worksite efficiency and improves both worker and pedestrian protection. Guardian’s extensive range of tethering and anchoring products features unique solutions for fast deployment, allowing tool tethering in simple steps and just a few seconds. Our award-winning Quick-Switch® system, allows guaranteed, hands-free, secure handling and transfer in nearly any type of environment.”

Quick-Switch® Tool Transfer System is a revolutionary, hands-free tool tether system that streamlines the secure transfer of tools when working at height, without the need to disconnect the tool from an anchor. Users remain in full control of the tool with 100% tie-off and the mechanical lock fits multiple tools to easily switch each tool’s connection from belts to wrists and between hands. Quick-Switch® is distinguished with a Highly Commended Product Innovation Award from the British Safety Industry Federation in 2021.

According to Peter Styth, Head of Sales Europe, Middle East and Asia-Pacific at Guardian with over 15 years of dropped object prevention experience, “HSE statistics show that in 2021 over 40,000 reported non-fatal injuries were a result of being struck by a moving or falling object and consistently remains in the top 3 of workplace fatal injuries the UK. The estimated cost to the community, business and government exceeds £90 million”. Peter continues to say, “Guardian’s Quick-Switch® Tool Transfer System can dramatically reduce cost and help save lives.”
