Identifying risks to operator safety

Our SupreemX-12™ synthetic rope made with Dyneema® was used to replace steel-wire on the winch system that controls the lids on the top of Stony Mountain’s waste bins. The change occurred after a wire rope frayed, leaving employees susceptible to a hand injury if the sharp strand penetrated through a worker’s glove.

According to research conducted by ASSE, hand injuries alone can cost companies $7,500 per incident in both direct and indirect costs.
