Why use hose reels?
Why use hose reels? Because they make hose handling more efficient and safer. Your hoses, cables and cords will last up to five times longer. You will improve hose
management, which decreases labor costs. Your chances of injuries from tripping hazards will decrease, which
saves lost work time, medical bills and higher insurance. You also save the cost of replacing expensive hoses, cables and cords that get run over by fork lifts and other
vehicles, which saves equipment costs. Here are the most compelling reasons to use hose, cord and cable reels.
The Bottom Line:
Locating hoses and cords where and when you need them increases productivity. All of these factors contribute to an improved work environment, which saves time, equipment and money.
Hoses on reels can reduce the threat of expensive air and water leakages.
OSHA says reduce your slips, trips and falls
Slips, trips and falls constitute the majority of general industry accidents, which cause 15% of all accidental deaths, and are second only to
motor vehicles as a cause of fatalities. The OSHA standards for walking and working surfaces apply to all permanent places of employment, except
where only domestic, mining, or agricultural work is performed (www.osha.gov).
