How to Reduce Labor Costs and Increase Workplace Safety with Industrial Safety and Personal Protective Equipment

By: CableOrganizer®


Occupational safety practices are vital to the success of a business. Purchasing Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) safeguards you and those around you.

There has been trending decline in non-fatal workplace injuries as of 2020, which may be related to several factors. One of them could be the increase in safety equipment use. That safety equipment has been improved and new types have been created. Another factor could be the changes in the workplace culture, with a rise in people transitioning from manual work to sedentary office work. Lastly, the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic may have been related to the reduced number of recordable, work-related injuries, because of the increase in remote work.

Here's a breakdown, according to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), of non-fatal workplace injuries in the United States between 2010 and 2020:

2010 3.1 million
2011 3.0 million
2012 2.9 million
2013 2.9 million
2014 2.8 million
2015 2.9 million
2016 2.9 million
2017 2.8 million
2018 2.8 million
2019 2.8 million
2020 2.8 million

What are some of the workplace safety products available at CableOrganizer® that can help keep you and your employees protected?



speed bump

It is important to ensure speeds are low on work sites in parking lots, driveways, and in other locations, to keep properties, employees, and people passing through safe. The Speed Nub Safety Bump Rumble Strips come in the safety strip colors of black or yellow (or both), in a low-profile design that can create up to a 39 inch long by 4-inch-wide speed bump. The rubber is an environmentally friendly recycled material. They can be affixed to provide traction to surfaces, including ramps. Eagle® Parking Stops and Speed Bumps are made of high density polyethylene (HDPE) that is resistant to UV, weather extremes, and chemicals, to safeguard cables and hoses in parking lots. Modular Portable Speed Humps with End Caps take vehicles down to a safe speed in residential areas, school zones, construction sites, and similar locations. They can be easily installed and removed.



industrial safety

When you are on a worksite with hazardous materials, it is important to keep them properly contained. Lockout/tagout kits also ensure that particular equipment has been locked in the off position — or affixed with a warning tag not to turn them on — for safety, as maintenance and repairs on the equipment are performed. Choose from Eagle Manufacturing® products like the Flammable Storage Safety Cabinet to keep materials contained per OSHA and National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA) standards. NFPA 30 is that agency’s guidance for storing flammable and combustible liquids. CableOrganizer® also has Eagle Manufacturing® storage cabinets for pesticides, corrosive and acid storage, and HAZ-MAT. You will also find Eagle Manufacturing® Spill Containment Platforms and Pallets where fuel and irritants can be safely stored and poured. Choose from a variety of lockout/tagout products, including basic, economy, standard, and duffel kits, plus a lockout and lockbox station.



traffic safety

This is another category for safety at your workplace or offsite jobsite. Choose from the Eagle Manufacturing® Polyethylene Delineators, which draw pedestrians’ and drivers’ attention to hazardous conditions. Wall and Corner Protectors are energy-absorbing items of HDPE that keep walls, vehicles, and other surfaces safe. Bollard Posts and Machine Guards, also from Eagle Manufacturing®, protect in and around buildings to keep structures safe from trucks, forklifts, and restricted vehicles. The Eagle Manufacturing® High Visibility Column Protectors are weather-resistant HDPE structures that shield columns and beams from forklifts and trucks.
