Stopdrop Tooling provides hand tools which have been designed to prevent dropping when “Working At Height”. These tools are commonly called tools at height, tools aloft or tethered tools. The tooling is designed and modified to enable user freedom and maintain product functionality but continue to safely control the tool.
Dropped objects are one of the major sources of incidents in heavy industries and construction. In the drilling industry it is estimated that one in ten dropped object incidents are caused by falling hand tools. Stopdrop Tooling works closely with its global customer base including drilling contractors, rope access specialists and scaffolding companies to get the tooling and modifications industry specific. By properly securing the hand tools to a fixed point or person with a lanyard and using locking techniques for individual tool parts, dropped objects incidents can be prevented. Stopdrop is a member of the drops workplace organisation which is dedicated to reducing dropped object incidents on and offshore, all Stopdrop Tooling manufactured tools are DROPS compliant.
For over a decade Stopdrop have supplied a standard derrick toolkit (Part No. SDKIT01) for use when using tools in the derrick. We have continually upgraded and improved the tooling content of the kit and believe it to be the finest full derrick kit available. The current configuration contains 175 tethered tools and accessories. We also offer a bespoke kit design service for both static and mobile kits, meant for a specific job or work area. Select the tools you want and we will manufacture them into a bespoke kit.
