Everyone uses electric cables to some extent and potentially hoses for gas, air pressure or water for various reasons.

Cables and hoses are widely used within most workplaces to supply lighting, welding, power tools, heating, pneumatic tools and fire fighting amongst others.

If used under controlled condition, cables like this are perfectly safe. However, if there are no proper cable management in place, these can cause severe accidents.

Adequate cable management should be considered in any workplace, no matter if it is an office environment or a construction site.

Our cable management toolbox talk helps keep employees safe and reduce health and safety issues in workplaces where an extensive amount of cables are used for items such as power tools, computers, screens and other various types of equipment for work.
