Hard Hat grunts and the lineman
The BLS..Bureau of Labor says that 240 fatalities has resulted from falling objects or equipment in the USA.  This accounted for roughly 5% of all work place fatalities.  In 2015 there were 42,400 incidents of falling or dropped objects resulting in a medially reported accident.

Maybe a falling nut-bolt-tool-objects from 25 ft only causes minor injury.... but from 300 ft, according to the wind industry, even a small object falling from 300 ft will generate an impact of 300 pounds.

Safety has no quitting time for a family waiting on you to return home......always wear the hard hat
