Milwaukee Tool improves safety on the jobsite for trade professionals with the introduction of a new line of Tool Lanyards and Lanyard Accessories, designed to keep users safe without hindering productivity. Weight-rated between 10 – 35 lbs, the lanyards are capable of tethering to a wide variety of tools and equipment. Each offers superior safety features including locking carabiners for secure attachment, best-in-class shock absorption to protect users from the force of a fallen object, integrated swivels for easier use, and color coding so safety managers can easily identify the proper weight-rated lanyard for the job.
“The Bureau of Labor Statistics has reported that falling objects account for 5 percent of all workplace fatalities in the United States. Statistics like this highlight how important it is for companies with employees working at heights to implement tethering programs to help prevent these types of injuries in the first place,” said Derek Rose, Senior Product Manager for Milwaukee Tool. “With a focus on keeping employees safe without hindering their productivity, we’ve designed a lineup of lanyards that provide little to no interference during tool use, are quick and easy to attach, as well as color-coded so safety managers can easily ensure compliance.”
Rated for 10- 35 lbs tools, all of the new Milwaukee® Tool Lanyards feature locking carabiners to ensure secure anchoring. Integrated 360° swivels prevent twists and tangles, allowing users to continue working efficiently without fighting with the tether. To improve productivity, an optional Quick-Connect Lanyard design will also be included in the lineup. Users simply need to attach the quick connect attachment to frequently used tools, and they’re ready to easily tether the tools to the main lanyard. For safety managers and users to easily identify that the proper lanyard is in use, each of the Milwaukee® Tool Lanyards is color-coded for weight compliance. For companies that want better visualization into how and where their lanyards are being utilized, they also feature serial numbered ID tags for easy tracking and inspection when entered into the inventory management portion of the One-Key™ app.
Also available will be an assortment of lanyard accessories. For tools without manufactured lanyard holes, Milwaukee® will offer Self-Adhering Tape and D-Rings that work together to create a secure attachment point. For tools with lanyard holes too small for the desired lanyard cinch or carabiner, new Split Rings can be put through the lanyard hole to attach to the ring.
The new Milwaukee® Tool Lanyards include a Limited Lifetime Warranty and are a testament to Milwaukee Tool’s continued commitment to develop game-changing solutions professionals truly want and need to perform their job more safely and productively.
