Many facilities are working to transform their workplaces into areas conducive to safe, efficient and effective operations. The result of implementing these practices is visible in well-organized, clutter-free warehouses, easily-accessible tools and equipment, and notably improved safety and work flow.
The flow of supplies, tools, equipment, vehicles and employees in and out of the facility should be smooth and orderly. OSHA’s standards define the need for the proper setup of aisles and passageways to ensure workers’ safety. Floor safety and directional markings define these designated areas. As per OSHA, aisles should be well-marked, with proper width, and always unobstructed, well-lit and in good condition.
Where do Markings belong?
The markings are applied in places where passersby and employees have access, such as car parks, service and storage areas, aisles, stairs and lobbies. These markings are very useful in public places such as hospitals, malls, stadiums, and places where the safety of the general public cannot be compromised. In business and industrial areas, floor markings assure unimpeded transit from one location to another, eliminating accidents and delays.
Epoxy and polyurethane coatings are the optimal choice to ensure longevity. These superior paint products offer high-resistance against damages and friction, and give excellent performance in outdoor marking applications because they are impervious to rain, UV and other environmental damage.
Marking applications vary from simple demarcation lines, to instructional signs and symbols, to implicit words and phrases denoting information about the area or where to go from there.
How can Color Coding help?
Color coding of machinery and equipment give clear visual cues to identify the type of hazard, which helps workers identify the level of severity and alert them to the dangers that exist at a facility or work site. The intent is to reduce the possibility of accidents and injuries.
Color coding of machinery and equipment, as well as, safety and directional markings, make the goal of properly-marked, well-maintained and safer workplaces possible.
