Meet Paul Weatherson

Hit by a spanner weighing less than 1kg, from a distance of 5 metres, Paul Weatherson suffered extensive neck injuries. Despite surgery, he is now living with a grip strength of 2kg - not enough to do up the button on a pair of jeans, or open a can of beer. 

Paul is our Target: Zero Drops ambassador, and is available to conduct a hard-hitting awareness session with an inspirational and sobering account of his life before and after the dropped-tool incident.

The great news for WHS in Australia is that, overall, incidents of worker fatalities and incident rates (resulting in claims of 1 or more weeks off work) are on a downward trend. The concern for industries who operate at height, is that fatalities and incident rates involving dropped objects have spiked to their highest levels in the past 4 years.

Build Your Own Successful Strategy

Target: Zero Drops is a 360-degree commitment to safety, through the emphasis placed on culture and education. We know that it is simply not enough to identify the equipment required and have it on-hand for workers operating at height. A deeper level of understanding and acceptance is required from the end-user, to ensure that best practices are employed when working at height, and the impact of a dropped tool is nullified at the very start of any possible incident, instead of relying on the secondary measures (drop-zones, catchment nets etc.).

By targeting the weak spots in a dropped-tool prevention strategy, Target: Zero Drops allows the company or project leader to bring about meaningful change to on-site safety procedures at any stage of the project lifecycle.

"To effectively lower these rates of worker fatalities and incidents, there must be a considered approach to the key drivers of these statistics. With dropped objects placing consistently in the top 3 to 4 causes of workplace fatalities and incidents, the opportunity is there to create immediate and very real change to the national average." - Rick Sali
