Have a Nice Trip?
Living in the 21st Century, technology is everywhere, but unfortunately not all our gadgets and electronics are wireless/Bluetooth compatible. Wires, cables and leads are still the primary means of connecting our tools to appropriate power supplies including in the O.R.
Diathermy leads, anaesthetic lines, oxygen tubing, wound drains, dialysis machines, the list goes on, the operating theatre is chaotic enough without having to worry about where to put your feet. Did you know falls, trips and slips of staff members accounted for 18% of Workplace Injury claims within the Health and Community sector1? This begs the question, what can we do today to reduce or prevent the risk of injury caused by potential trip hazards?
1. Spot and acknowledge the hazard
2. Highlight the hazard making it visible to those at risk
3. Secure the hazard making it no longer a hazard
When it’s time to pack up, or you need to move anything, just pull up the strip and discard. We guarantee there will be no sticky residue left behind.
Ask us for a sample today and cover yourself, your cords and leads to avoid that next workplace injury. Your body will thank you later.
