Workplace injuries occur far too often because of something innocuous that you might never guess would cause a hazard. If you’re in engineering, there’s a lot to be said about packing away your cables correctly and safely.
One of the simple ways to change this is to invest in some cable harnessing: a real innovation within cabling that combines many different units at once. There are plenty of reasons to opt for a harness for your cables, so here are just 5 of them.
1. Health and Safety
The previously mentioned benefits from a safety perspective cannot be underestimated. Tripping over cables can propose a whole host of dangers to you personally and also your workforce. In addition to causing injury, you are also vulnerable to lawsuit.
2. Nobody Likes a Messy Bedroom.
Much like your bedroom at home, you will never feel quite comfortable when surrounded by masses of mess and nothing you need in the workplace being where you need it. This is easily helped by harnessing all of your cables into one place.
There aren’t many industries that cable harnessing isn’t applicable to as its usefulness has been proven in everything from photovoltaics to wind energy to everything in-between. It’s one of the most reliable cable techniques around and could also prove to be just what you need.
4. Easy to Assemble…
Technically, you could create your own harness right now with a cable and a crimp, it would probably only take about 5 minutes and it would be ready to implement. Though it could be worthwhile spending a little extra to receive a lot more, which brings us onto the next point.
5. …But Hard to Perfect.
If you have assembled your own harness and have anything less than a degree in engineering to go along with it, you might notice that it deteriorates in quality pretty quickly. This is because there are dedicated specialists with all the right materials and techniques who can help you to build the harness that you need.
Instead of simply crimping together cables (which should only be seen as a temporary measure at best), these professionals create custom harnesses which act as a permanent fixture for the cable. They also don’t harm the performance of the cable in the long run and can even be built from scratch.
