One of the biggest problems that comes along with civic improvement is that so often, drivers and other forms of transportation can have a negative effect on the work site. Many motorists are too busy text messaging or fiddling with their bluetooth to be looking out for pieces of equipment or the busy employee. For many larger forms of transportation, like buses and trucks, trying to navigate around tight spots where construction is happening is a hit or miss kind of game.
When construction crews leave important pieces of equipment like hoses and cables exposed, they can be quickly damaged thanks to outside variables. Sometimes, these important pieces of the project are left out in the open, sometimes they are placed under stacks of spare plywood. Either way, it is a dangerous and unreliable way to protect these necessary components.
Local city governments and the contractors they employ need to be aware of the major safety problems that are created when not using a heavy duty cable protector. Industrial traffic is the biggest enemy to cables and hoses. WIthout proper protection, these tools are easily damaged and workers are put into harm’s way. After enough fraying and wearing away, exposed cables are like a livewire, ready to hurt the closest thing, which is usually an employee. And hoses that become cracked, bent and broken are useless and usually make a bigger mess than the one they are trying to contain.
