In the UK, it is estimated that more than 10,000 employees and workers suffer from major injuries, usually a result of slips and trips around the workplace. What’s more, a further 30,000 took over 3 days off work to recover from injuries. Add all of this up, and it is estimated that this costs the UK economy around £800 million in time off work, fines by authorities, and claims against companies.
To combat these injuries, the HSE in conjunction with Local Authority inspectors have been routinely carrying out inspections of workplaces to ensure potential hazards are dealt with. Especially at risk of inspection is the construction division, companies both large and small, who are continually subjected to inspections of standards on construction sites, such as keeping walkways clear and removing any trailing leads that could cause someone to trip over.
One of the most common hazards on a building site is tripping, and one of the main culprits are cables not tucked out of the way. Sometimes it’s necessary to have those cables on a work site, so what can be done about them?
We’d like to introduce Skyhook, an amazingly simple way to keep the cables out of the way to prevent tripping or accidental damage.
The versatile Skyhook can be used as a temporary cable support by hooking it over items such as floor joists or ceiling grids, or screwing the support into a strong ceiling surface, or even attaching it to a wall.
Trailing power leads are an accident waiting to happen. Why not secure your power leads away to prevent this happening in the first place?
This versatile Skyhook is a temporary cable support which keeps leads high off the ground to prevent tripping or electrocution. You can hook the Skyhook over high structures such as floor joists, ceiling grids, or by even screwing the hook into the ceiling or wall.
The Skyhook is manufactured from bright yellow non-conductive material to make they remain seen.
