According to OSHA tool belts can weigh upward of 50 pounds

Using tool belts can be helpful for carting a large number of tools around a jobsite. But when fully loaded, tool belts can weigh upward of 50 pounds, according to OSHA. This puts significant strain on the lower back and hips. Wearing tool belts for an extended period of time can cause fatigue, discomfort and pain, the agency warns.

To prevent pain and strain with tool belts, OSHA suggests the following:

  • Use a mobile tool box or bucket-style tool bag in place of a tool belt.
  • Arrange tools in smaller pouches so the weight is evenly distributed.
  • Whenever possible, reduce the weight by removing tools that are not necessary for the task at hand.

 

The KALTgear Adaptive Work Gear system consists of Pouches, Knee Pads and tool carrier to organize your tools based on task and only carry on you what you need. MilSpec Velcro on the KALTgear tool pouches, Adaptive Work Pants and Tool Carrier enable you exchange the tool pouches from the Tool Carrier to the Adaptive Work Pants or your regular pants by sliding them into your pocket or behind your belt within seconds. That allows you to organize your tools and hardware into smaller, less heavy bags but keep everything within reach attached to your Tool Carrier.
