Trips and falls are one of the largest health risks when you are at work. In fact, trips and falls are so common, OSHA has a “Trip and Fall” hazard category!
“US Labor Department's OSHA publishes proposed rulemaking to prevent injuries from slips, trips and falls on walking-working surfaces. OSHA News Release, (2010, May 24). Construction. ... Helps workers identify and control the hazards that cause the most serious construction-related injuries.”
One of the challenges in lighting your workspace is how to safely use work-site lighting, without creating trip hazards with cords. Whether you are lighting a home garage, automotive repair shop, or maintenance shop in a factory, you need to make sure you keep the environment as safe as possible. A retractable trouble light can help you to illuminate your work, and keep everyone’s feet on the ground!
Save Space in the Name of Safety
A retractable trouble light reduces the chances of tripping by storing unused cord on a spring-loaded reel. If there is slack in the cord, it can be retracted into the spool, eliminating errant loops or coils that could catch someone’s feet, and cause a fall. Not only is a retractable trouble light ideal for keeping your work area safe, it is also easy to store. Since the cord is automatically retracted, you do not need to take the time to coil it before putting the light away. Most cord reels include mounting hardware for mounting the reel on a ceiling or wall.
