Industrial, manufacturing and office environments are required to comply with OSHA standards. Creative Safety Supply is making it easier for companies to implement a 5s program that will take the guess work out of the equation. The OSHA floor marking guide includes information about safety line marking and OSHA floor markings that are color-coded and visual so employees and visitors feel safe around the workplace. Avoiding accidents in the workplace is a top priority for any business that wants productivity to grow and increase profits. Complying with OSHA and ANSI color recommendations for floor markings is an integral part of any 5s safety program. The guide will help any business through the process whether it is for implementing a new 5s program or re-marking floors.
Floor marking by OSHA regulations require permanent aisles and passageways must be marked properly. Yellow is designated as the caution color and is used for marking physical hazards such as falling, stumbling or tripping points. Aisle width is another OSHA requirement for aisles and passageways. Sufficient safe clearances must be provided when mechanical equipment is being used. Also storage rooms containing flammable liquids must meet minimum allowed widths. Tape width is also important and the guide will state 2” is the minimum width acceptable by OSHA and ANSI.
Creative Safety Supply offers a 5s Vinyl Industrial Marking Tape that is multi-purpose for lining floors, workstations, color-coding, and other solutions. The 5s tape is comparable to 3M 471 Vinyl Colored Tape and others but is more cost effective and affordable. It is the easiest way to promote organization and safety in the workplace. As one plant manager commented, “The 5s Vinyl Marking Tape is very easy to use and I like the idea that I can write on it with normal permanent markers and it holds up better than painted lines.”
