Cables, leads and wires are everywhere, all delivering
The number of cables we encounter has declined, there are many electrical appliances or equipment that no longer require a lead and instead operate via batteries, charging units or simply wirelessly - telephones, microphones and kettles are good examples.
Yet the number of appliances we each now own and or use has increased dramatically and under our desks, our feet are frequently tangled up in a confused and dangerous mess of wires.
Yet with so many cables trailing around, it's little wonder we aren't constantly tripping over. Those who observe legislatory health and safety guidelines know to use a floor cable protector which tidies wires together, preventing accidents. However, these guidelines haven't always been observed and the consequences can be costly.
These simple devices will ensure that people don't trip up and hurt themselves needlessly. It also protects an individual or business from any claims for compensation on grounds of negligence.
Tripping isn't the only hazard where cables are concerned. Contact with live electricity can kill, therefore it is vital that cable and plug socket quality is maintained. A risk assessment should be carried out (when the power has been turned off, naturally) to determine whether any need replacing or mending.
There are, naturally, greater risks in wet or outdoor surroundings. To reduce these risks, it is essential that the right sort of wires, etc, are used. An indoor extension lead simply won't suffice and could cause injury and or fires. Plus avoid overloading sockets with adaptors, as this can cause sparks and explosions, also.
Cables, leads and wires are everywhere. Let's make sure we use them properly.
The cable protectors vary in terms of their design, and if you look at the individual profiles, this show their designs. Some of our cable tidies have open bores underneath, or bores with slits for the cables to be pushed upward through. Other cable protectors are fully enclosed so that cables can either be fed through from one end, or a slit can be made with a sharp knife and cables pushed through from underneath.
