Dropped objects also known as falling materials
“Is any object with the potential to cause death, injury or equipment/environmental damage which falls from its previous static position under its own weight”.
How bad is the impact? – The drops calculator / dropped object calculator is a mathematical model used for determining the potential harm a dropped object can cause. It shows that even a small object falling from a high distance can have a weighty and lethal impact. Find the drops calculator on the www.preventdrops.com website. Aside from the direct physical impact, secondary effects could range from minor injuries that require a simple medical treatment to traumatic fatalities; right down to environmental/equipment damages. Some of which may amount to huge court fines. This makes the dropped object prevention so important.
