Over the past year, several leading safety equipment manufacturers have been working with the International Safety Equipment Association (ISEA) to develop a standard for equipment solutions that prevent dropped objects.
The American National Standard for Dropped Object Prevention Solutions (a working name), or ISEA Standard 121, has recently been approved by committee members and is now going through a formal review process.
Once it has been finalized, released and adopted, it will give manufacturers a consistent guideline for classification, test procedure and performance requirements for this equipment. When this happens, the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) will likely adopt the standard together with ISEA, making it ANSI/ISEA 121.
