Large & heavy-weighted cables have become a safety concern in many surgical & medical rooms.
Last year, MSA Magnetics sold a number of Cable-Mates to an operating theatre in the Hunter Region, NSW. They attached these to their laparoscopic towers, instrument carts & trolleys which are now used to hold their cables & power leads securely out of harm’s way.
Graham Cutler, the Nurse Unit Manager of John Hunter Hospital says he “chanced on this product whilst looking for a product to hold onto cables & power leads in the operating theatres. The MSA Cable-Mate is well suited to the healthcare environment as it can be placed on most laparoscopic towers and cleaned to meet infection control guidelines. Highly recommended product”.
Cords, cables & hoses are a major OH&S concern, causing many workplace injuries. According to OSHA, most general industry incidents involve slips, trips, and falls. They cause 15% of all accidental deaths and are second only to motor vehicles as a cause of fatalities. The Cable-Mate has been proven to help create a safer workplace area & are perfect for storing & handling electrical cables, leads, hoses & wires in a practical position.
Cutler also says that “MSA’s level of customer service is excellent – they have responded to requests & questions quickly & efficiently in a very professional manner”.
