The mining industry is notorious for extreme workplace hazards. For this reason, innovations in mine safety are of the utmost importance. Here, CableSafe is leading the pack with a host of equipment assisting in making the underground safe for employees.

Confined Space Safety

Mine safety appliances generally include equipment for confined space safety, due to the nature of the environment. CableSafe offers confined space safety solutions that include access control, manhole covers and cover nets along with dedicated signage that can be customized to the customer’s specific requirements. In terms of access prevention, CableSafe offers both heavy duty and light duty barriers that are easily installed, preventing accidental and unauthorized access to confined spaces. These barriers are easily uninstalled when no longer needed

Quick Entry Solutions

CableSafe also offers quick entry solutions ideal for mining operations. Their equipment allows quick entry via overhead access into confined spaces. This is specifically designed for retrieval of personnel and materials from confined spaces and is easily installed by just one employee.

The modular quick entry system can be adjusted to suit each specific situation. This system can also be modified and customized upon special request. With a total load bearing capacity of 163kg, this is ideal for lowering and lifting one or two people at a time, depending on the individual’s size and the amount of gear they must take with them.

CableSafe’s quick entry system is equipped with a fall protection system in line with international safety regulations, offering peace of mind to all who use it.

Tripods and Winches

CableSafe offers a selection of tripods and winches designed for lowering and lifting personnel into and out of manholes and other confined working spaces. These are fully customizable, easily installed and adapted to each specific situation.

Cable Management

Cable management is crucial and CableSafe offers ideal solutions for this challenge faced in most industrial workplaces. Their range of cable management solutions include safety hooks (also called s hooks), cable guards, cable rails and cable stands.

During maintenance and installation procedures, cables must often be temporarily routed along new paths or simply suspended off the floor for safety. Here, safety hooks (s hooks) are the right tool for the job. These s-shaped hooks are made from high quality plastic, usually in

safety yellow, although they can be made in any color, even glow in the dark, on special request. They are also available in a range of sizes.
