Cable management is important for any organization for health and safety risks when not maintained. Improperly installing cables in the work environment can also lead organizations into legal issues. In any working environment, cables connect within devices to multiple power/cable sockets like from Computer to switch unit, desk phone to phone socket, laptops connecting power units, printers, etc. So, all these connections not only need one cable, it will require multiple cables.
In most working environments, organizations are establishing built-in desks for cable management which is much easier and lets the workplace look tidy and clean. Some organisations are remodelling their work environments in a more advanced way by enabling wireless capabilities. This saves time for the employees on usage as well as less hassle to connect and maintain.
It’s just not on the health and safety, organizations that are not managing the cables neat and tidy, it’s possible they will run into legal issues which will a huge loss and can damage the organisation’s reputation.
In this article, I would like to cover a few more points on why it’s important to manage cables
- Not only is the safety of the employees that are important during cable management, but it’s also important to remember that these cables transmit the data. If the necessary power and connectivity are not available there is a possibility of data loss which can result in hacking the organisation’s private data.
- If the cables are not well managed in the workplace, there is a chance for you to pull the cable of your co-worker in the process of fixing yours. This will waste the time of you and your colleagues.
- If the cables get crushed under some weights resulting in damage of the wires or pulling of wires will break them, in these scenarios that will lead in spending money for replacing wires as and when those get damaged.
- Many of the organizations have clients/stakeholders that work hand in hand for the outcome of organization deliverables. To have a trusted relationship established, it’s also important to maintain the workplace neat and tidy as the appearance of the workplace will leave an impression on the quality of work that gets delivered.
- An untidy environment not only set the client impression low but also set a negative impact on the employee’s mood. A clean environment will have a motivated and stress less environment for the workers/employees and can result in the best outcomes.
