'Summer is a time of year everyone looks forward to, but lack of planning can quickly turn a fun summerday into high risk situation,' said Steve Gottlieb, Director of Sales and Marketing at Checkers.

Checkers Industrial Safety Products is encouraging families and businesses to include safety in their summer planning. This time of year can be much more dangerous with weather events such as hurricanes, thunderstorms, and tornadoes being in season. By being aware of these situations and having the proper safety equipment on hand, summer can be much more enjoyable.

“Summer is a time of year everyone looks forward to, but lack of planning can quickly turn a fun summer day into high risk situation,” said Steve Gottlieb, Director of Sales and Marketing at Checkers. He went on to say, “Being prepared for these unplanned events can make them much easier to handle and keep you safe. We offer an extensive variety of products that help protect individuals and families.”

To improve visibility in hazard situations, Checkers suggests having an LED Flare Kit. Gottlieb stated, “These kits provide a series of quick setup, high visibility LED warning lights that immediately alert people of your presence. The best kits are 'all-in-one' units that double as a charging station and organizational carrying case. With a compact case, an LED Flare Kit can easily be stored in any vehicle.”

If your battery fails in your vehicle or your cell phone dies, you can easily get either one going with 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,” said Gottlieb. They can also 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.

On work sites and in emergency situations, lack of visibility can often create a hazardous environment that can make a difficult situation even worse. According to Steve Gottlieb, “Mounting a Gorilla® All Purpose Warning Whip to your vehicle will make them much more visible to those around you. These high visibility whips help identify other vehicles in your area and reduce accidents.” These whips include a heavy duty Day Bright™ fluorescent nylon mesh flag with or without 3M® Scotchlite® reflective X, New Rocket™ II Super Bright Waterproof LED light, and a stainless steel threaded hex base.

With more people working and recreating in areas with electric cables and hoses, injuries from trips and falls are growing by disturbing numbers. According to Checkers, one of the easiest ways to prevent cables and hoses from becoming trip hazards is to use Yellow Jacket® Urethane Cable Protectors. “These cable protectors are an easy way to reduce trip and fall hazards while organizing your cables and hoses and protecting them from damage,” said Gottlieb. “Yellow Jacket cable protectors are modular so they can be extended to any desired length.”

Checkers began in 1987 with a simple vision: to be a dynamic and growing organization dedicated to saving lives and protecting assets by delivering innovative safety products. That vision still drives Checkers today. Product offerings include cable and hose protection systems, wheel chocks, warning whips, warning lights and more. Learn more at
