Performing arborist work requires the use of numerous hand tools, ranging from lightweight to heavier ones, such as chainsaws. Being able to easily access the equipment, and protect it against falling is the key for arborists. The likelihood of accidents occurring while working at heights is relatively high. While safety helmets help to protect workers from falling objects, the use of special tool straps is necessary to ensure full safety of employees. Apart from preventing tools from falling, the straps make it easier to use them.
