Lake Oswego, OR (PRWEB) December 10, 2012
OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) is a government agency that has the role to ensure workers from all over the country are working under safe conditions. Factories and warehouses as well as other facilities in the industry are expected to know about the safety guidelines imposed by OSHA. One of OSHA’s jobs is to provide standards that must be followed by various facilities to boost a company’s 5s program. One of these measures is the OSHA floor marking standards that aim to promote safety in the workplace by setting up proper safety markings throughout the facility. Creative Safety Supply, a leading supplier of safety products, is now offering many free online training guides and informational documents to educate office and plant employees about safety and guidelines that should be followed to comply with OSHA standards. One such new product is the Floor Marking Guide.
The Floor Marking Guide provides the OSHA color chart distinguishing what each color should be used for when marking floors or equipment. Creative Safety Supply’s floor marking tape complies with OSHA standards for safety awareness. Red is the color that signifies danger or a warning of some kind. Yellow is the usual color that is considered as the basic color for marking tapes and does not signify special meaning except to catch attention or to make someone observe the safety marks. Orange suggest warning but not as intense as red. White is used to determine the appropriate storage areas. Blue is a color used to caution against low levels of danger such as machinery needs repair and can be dangerous.
All businesses should be concerned about safety in the workplace and should be serious about preventing workers from getting involved in accidents as well as life threatening injuries. Billions of dollars are spent each year on unnecessary accidents in the workplace. A simple solution to keep safety numbers up and accident free is by reading and following and integrating the information provided through the Floor Marking Guide. A business owner commented, “The free floor marking guide from Creative Safety Supply gave us the proper information to provide safety within our business.”
