Cablesafe Cable Hooks - Safety Meets Simplicity With Thorne & Derrick

Cablesafe hooks are 'S' shaped, glass re-inforced polyester (GRP), plastic cable hooks designed to hold cables, hoses, work gear and wires off the floor. By removing these items and clearing floorspace, you are also removing any potential trip hazard.

Research by the Health And Safety Executive (HSE) found that 25% of workplace liability accidents are caused by slips, trips or falls. 95% of major slips, trips or falls cause broken bones.
