Social Return is an important aspect for CableSafe. This is how the production of our Manhole Entry Barrier is done as much as possible in sheltered workshops. These places are mainly staffed by skilled professionals with a disability or distance from the labor market. We want to give people with a distance to the labor market a chance to reintegrate into our society, and to upgrade them in a creative way.
We created a safe workplace for people who cannot find a job in the labor market. We offer a variety of learning tracks which correspond with the demands in the labor market. We guide and accompany around 40 people with safe and appropriate work. Most of these workers are employed in this safe environment but there are also some workers who get sent out to other employers.
In doing so, we strive to achieve the maximum possible socio-economic return.
Differences in work, age, ethnicity, character, dreams and hobbies. This is crucial for the organization. These differences and talents are all what makes us connected. Together, we can ensure that everyone who needs us can participate in society.
Safety is at the forefront of what we do. It is therefore important to understand why safety measures such as manhole barriers are necessary. Here are some questions and answers about our manhole barriers:
What is a Manhole?
Usually a manhole entry is used to conduct an inspection or for cleaning to name a few examples. These holes can be dangerous without a manhole barrier and can cause many accidents with serious consequences. A sturdy sign with a warning/restricted access sign is used as a manhole gate or entrance barrier to keep people without access out.
Why use a manhole barrier?
A manhole in space where there is heavy construction and a lot of employees walking around is a health hazard that needs to be dealt with. Manhole barricades help to warn and keep people out of manholes which are too dangerous to let people go in unsupervised.
Why the Manhole Entry barrier?
Although our Manhole Entry Barrier has a lot in common with the man-way cross barrier, there are differences present that keep these two apart. As opposed to the cross barrier, our entry barrier is adjustable, meaning that it can be extended or shortened according to the size of the manhole.The entry barrier is also perfect to use in diverse settings; whether the hole is wood, rubber or metal, this barrier will be robust regardless of the hole and weather conditions.
We also offer the text in various languages so that our customers can make use of these worldwide.
