Why You Need CGM (Continuous Ground Monitoring) Extension Cords

 Why you need CGM (Continuous Ground Monitoring) Extension Cords

When you are selecting power cords for the work site, it is important to consider certain features in order to increase the safety for the people who will be using the cords. CGM Continuous Ground Monitoring extension cords are a necessary tool on every work site because they allow you to see whether there is ground continuity with a quick glance at the end of the cord.

Following the Safety Guidelines

Bad Ass Extension Cords with CGM are helpful because of the fact that lights are built into the end of each cord. The lighted plugs have an indicator that shows whether power is flowing through the outlet and the cord. The indicator light in the clear connector lets you know the status of the ground continuity.

In fact, these types of cords are required on many construction sites because of OSHA safety requirements. So you should make these cords available in order to protect your crew of workers and ensure that you are following the safety rules (and avoiding fines!) at the same time.
