Tool-Safe control and storage system
Developed from our Height-Kits 6, 7 and 8, currently in use at several nuclear power stations, the Tool-Safe kit combines Tools@Height tools, Level 5 tool control and TC Max asset management software.
Access is controlled by the Level 5 electronic entry system using employee swipe/proximity security cards. Tool issue, return and tracking are managed by the TC Max asset management system. Tools@Height tools are tethered to the operative so they don’t fall onto personnel or drop into sensitive areas.
TC Max asset management system
TC Max is a highly effective asset management system that is easy to learn and quick to use. It will reinforce safety, increase productivity and reduce operating costs. Ideally incorporated at the design stage of a new MRO or storage facility, the system can be easily retrofitted and expanded as required.
TC Max enhances your FME and Safety regime ensuring tools and consumables are tracked, accounted for, and not left where they could cause harm or damage. It also links you to safe operating procedures, gives advance notice of calibration expiry dates, restricts issue of tools only to those qualified to use them, and much more.
Tools@Height drop prevention system
The Snap-on Tools@Height safety system stops dropped tools harming personnel, causing damage or disrupting work. The system provides controlled storage of tools, secure transportation of tools to the worksite and reliable retention of tools during use.
High-level uses include working on overhead gantries, wind turbines, cranes, buildings, bridges, masts, power lines, drilling derricks, etc.
Low-level uses include stopping tools falling into fuel rod cooling ponds, machinery, production lines, water filter beds, mine shafts, etc.
