What is the Number 1 Reason to Demand Your Tool Tether be Dynamic Drop Proven?
Why is dynamic drop testing important when it comes to tool safety?  When the ISEA 121 committee on Dropped Object Prevention began working on the new standard, they made a keystone decision to require dynamic drop testing to prove any and all DOP solutions instead of the traditional static testing.  But why is this important?  How does this make us safer and what is dynamic drop testing anyway?  Let’s see if we can shine a light on some of these questions.
