Travel Safety

Whether you are traveling on a family vacation, driving for work, or hauling a semi-load of freight across the country, it’s advisable to plan ahead for emergencies. Engine problems, flat tires, and dead batteries are just a few of the circumstances that could place you in an unwanted situation. Being prepared for these unplanned events can make them much easier to handle and keep you safe.

One of the newest items available for travel safety is an LED Flare Kit. These kits provide a series of quick setup LED warning lights that immediately alert people of your presence along the roadside. The best kits are an “all-in-one” unit that doubles as a charging station and organizational carrying case that holds the LED Flares and chargers. With a compact case, an LED Flare Kit can easily be stored in any vehicle for use in an emergency.

When your battery fails, you can now jump start it with ease using a Compact Power Charger. These chargers are small enough to fit in your pocket yet strong enough to start V8 trucks, cars, ATVs, motorcycles and boats. The best models also can charge cell phones, laptops, or any other electronic devices. You just charge the unit once and you have your own personal power supply that works no matter where you drive or ride. With the average family putting over 15,000 miles on every vehicle each year, carrying an LED Flare Kit and Compact Power Charger just makes good sense. Both of these travel safety devices are designed to give you and anyone traveling with you peace of mind. You can find both of these products at Checkers takes the safety of people and property very seriously, which has made us one of the world’s most trusted manufacturers of safety products.

Tripping Hazards

With the growing use of technology, homes and small businesses have more cords and cables crossing their floors than ever before. With this trend, it should come as no surprise that national statistics on injuries, and even deaths, from slips, trips, and falls are growing by disturbing numbers. According to OSHA, slips, trips and falls cause 15% of all accidental deaths, as well as account for 12-15% of all Workers’ Compensation claims.

One of the easiest ways to prevent cables and cords from becoming a trip hazard is by using cable protectors. The use of cable protectors helps eliminate trip hazards while at the same time protecting your cables and cords from damage. Whether the use is temporary or permanent, you can ensure that your family (or employees) and equipment is safe and protected.

Cable protectors can be used for a wide variety of applications and can easily be modified for surfaces such as carpet, wood, tile, and more. Using cable protectors will extend the life of your cables and give you the peace of mind that people are not at risk to trip and fall. Cable protectors are available with both rubber and urethane construction. The urethane models are constructed to last longer, meaning your investment in safety will last for years. You can find the largest variety of cable protectors at
