Avoiding Accidents in the Workplace and Home

With an increasing number of accidents at home and work, it is imperative to ensure that anything that can be done to reduce the chances of accidents is done.

In the UK alone, there are over 1,000,000 hospital visits per year caused by trips in the home (source RoSPA). Furthermore, there are over 1,500,000 work days lost per year for trips caused at work (source hse.gov.uk) which costs UK employers over £500 million per year. Trips are the most common cause of major injuries at work. This shows that trip hazards in the home and at work are both significant and costly.

How to we reduce this risk?

It is unrealistic to say that accidents can be totally eradicated from the home and workplace. What is achievable is reducing the possibility of these accidents by some basic actions that are quick and easy to achieve yet can dramatically reduce the chance of trip and other accidents.

When it comes to trip hazards, the worst offender is wires or cords from electrical appliances not being organised in a safe way, both in the home and at work. Whether it is computer cables under a desk or TV and entertainment centre cables not tucked away safely at home, the risk from simple trips is greatly increased. There are many ways to make this situation safer quickly and easily. By using some readily available accessories or simple organisation, trip hazards can be reduced or eradicated altogether.

D-Line has a range of products that help reduce the risks in the workplace and at home in a stylish and effective manner, ensuring safety combines perfectly with aesthetics. This helps portray a professional image at work and a tidy, safe home. With items such as decorative trunking that blends in with skirting boards and hides cables, and linkable floor cable covers, safety can be achieved at minimal cost but with a really positive visual look. 

D-Line Sounds Right for AV Enthusiasts

When it comes to AV enthusiasts, they are a very demanding breed. Everything needs to be in its place and the performance has to be perfect. And rightly so!

When it comes to equipment, no expense is spared in sourcing the best systems that money can buy. Whether it’s a sound system, home cinema or any other installation, how it looks and how it performs are of paramount importance.

In terms of performance and how a system looks, cables and what you do with them can often be a problem. There are wireless options available but the AV communities seem to be against this if it can possibly be avoided due to a loss of sound quality.

What about channelling walls and burying cables? A good if expensive and messy option, and difficult / impossible to add or remove wires when needed.

So what is the best option?  Trunking can work really well to hide cables while remaining accessible to add or remove wires as necessary. D-Line has a range of patented trunking and cable management products that are being very well received by AV communities both in the UK and Europe alike. The trunking blends perfectly with skirting and can be painted to match décor. The great thing about the trunking is that the D shape allows cables to be hidden inside it, and accessed via the hinged top, which then locks into place. There is also a quarter round version that sits at the bottom of your skirting which is ideal for hiding speaker wires. There is even a TV drop that hides any cables coming down from your TV.

All-in-all, there are some great options to hide cables and extensions that will enhance your installation or hide those unsightly cables – and some are more innovative than others.
