Dropped Object Prevention

BLH STOP DROP™ SAFETY BARRICADING SYSTEM is designed to combat one of the most common causes of work related injuries/fatalities - being hit by a falling object.

Since 2009, BLH Safety Solutions™ have been researching and developing new and innovative ways to protect personnel around the globe from the hazard of dropped objects.
