Hi Doug,
I really like this idea and have often been concerned about tools in lifts (and near rails)

We should order some tether systems and parts and try them.
Below are some links to some from Grainger, maybe you know of others...

Much of this stuff is not cheap but I'd say well worth the cost if it helps keep us and the detector safer!



I also like: https://www.grainger.com/product/PROTO-Tool-Lift-Bucket-38HW42?functionCode=P2IDP2PCP
The lowes/homedepot buckets are nice and cheap but we need to limit the amount of weight in each because I've seen the handles come off... I suggest that 20 lbs would be a reasonable number.


Note there is some duplication in the above.

Can we get funds from BOPS or Safety?
