Dropped Objects checklist

24 / 03 / 2023

A dropped object checklist is a tool used to identify potential hazards and prevent dropped object incidents in the workplace. Mintra offers an online dropped objects training course that will give you a basic understanding of the common causes of dropped objects, their potential consequences and how they can be prevented.

The checklist may include items such as:

  • Identify all potential dropped object hazards in the area
  • Ensure all equipment and tools are properly secured and tethered
  • Verify that all barriers and nets are installed correctly and in good condition
  • Inspect overhead fixtures and ensure they are secure and free of any potential hazards
  • Check for any loose or unsecured items in the work area
  • Confirm that all personnel are wearing appropriate personal protective equipment
  • Establish and enforce safe work practices and procedures for handling and working with objects at height
  • Conduct regular inspections of the area and equipment to identify any potential hazards and to ensure they are being properly addressed

The specific checklist items may vary depending on the workplace and the type of work being performed, but the goal is to identify and mitigate any potential dropped object hazards to ensure a safe working environment. Dropped objects can cause serious injuries as well as damage to assets and equipment.
