According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, accidents involving vehicles or mobile heavy equipment accounted for around 400 deaths annually. A review of several such incidents reveals instances in which vehicles were not secured. Sadly, some of these incidents may have been easily prevented simply by using industrial wheel chocks. Chocking (or blocking) can prevent trucks or trailers from rolling or overturning while employees are working around the vehicle—loading, unloading, etc.
Whether it be a parking lot, pathway or office landscaping, problems with drainage and ground stabilization can create dire safety and integrity issues for your business.
According to the non-profit road-improvement group RoadEx, “Poor drainage maintenance can have a major effect on the lifetime of a pavement and annual paving costs. It can also affect traffic safety.”
And, as most business owners know, the appearance of your facility provides the first key impression to your customers. Nothing says “run-down and untrustworthy” more than a facility rife with pitting, standing pools of water and uneven ground, not to mention the potential safety and liability problems that arise.
Part of the reason people seem to enjoy the holidays so much is because of all the wonderful decorations. Candy canes line the driveways, luminous deer can be seen grazing in the front yard, there’s even that one house that has Santa’s sleigh coming in for a landing on their roof—in all its 10,000-watt glory. Achieving this aesthetic wonderland, however, can sometimes come at a cost.

Quick Hook is a simple, user friendly safety tool. One method for easy installation is to place the Quick Hook up on the place you wish to hang it, then carefully spread the opposite curved end sideways only slightly, enough to twist the wire or cables down inside the hook holding the cable in place. Once the cable, wire, or hose is already placed inside the hook, you can raise additional items into the air and lay them inside.
Checkers constantly tests its products to insure they remain the industry’s standard. Recently Firefly Cable Protectors were the recent product to undergo testing at our facility. After testing, we have found the Firefly cable protectors with red LEDs battery length to be at an astonishing 420 hours, a little over 17 days nonstop. This is […]
