Lake Oswego, OR (PRWEB) January 08, 2013
The issue of hazards is on the forefront for most companies when it comes to avoiding workplace accidents. Creative Safety Supply, a leading supplier of safety products, is now offering black and yellow safety tape to help minimize or completely eliminate hazards in the workplace. Most companies today follow a 5s safety program and the hazard safety tape is a great tool for identifying areas that could possibly be hazardous and clearly emphasizes the importance of keeping the area clear at all times.
Applying the tape is simple and easy with the peel-&-stick installation and is backed up by a one year warranty. Unlike paint that requires dry time, cure time, and promotes fumes along with a messy clean up that limits productivity, the tape can be installed in no time without any production downtime. Companies can be assured they are in compliance with OSHA requirements when using the black and yellow safety tape. Specific colors as designated by OSHA will alert workers and the public of areas that may be dangerous or it may reflect a warning.
Areas in which fire hazards may be a potential risk should be marked by red and white striped hazard tape. The yellow and black tape should be used to caution people about areas in which they could fall over an obstacle, bump into an overhead object or be injured by something sticking out from a wall or machine. Handrails and guardrails can also be marked with the yellow and black tape. White and black striped tape indicates a safe area to walk or work in. Black and white tape can mark aisles in factories and construction shops that will inform workers where it is safe to walk around equipment or machinery. The green and white tape is used for marking locations of safety equipment and stations such as eye wash stations, emergency showers and stretchers and gas mask storage areas.
A business owner commented, “The hazard striped safety tape is the easiest and most simple solution for marking both hazardous and safety areas. We love it!”
