Successful manufacturing and distribution facilities that operate either a small storage area or a large warehouse know that ensuring a lean facility along with promoting safety is critical to a business. One way that requires little effort and is very affordable is installing floor markings to create more organization and safety in the workplace. Creative Safety Supply is now offering a Floor Marking Guide that will give rules and directions as to how to comply with OSHA safety standards. Work areas and equipment need to be clearly defined in order to safeguard the people from unwanted accidents and prevent product displacement that upsets the process.
By using floor tape as a means to mark off areas, aisles and pathways can help to organize inventory, while directing smooth traffic flow within the workplace where goods, vehicles and workers come and go. The guide observes the mandates of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration and American National Standards Institute in terms of the ANSI and OSHA floor markings size and color charts. The guide will teach workers the appropriate colors to use when marking floors which will reduce accidents in the work place.
The color code guide will help simplify the identification of hazards, and contribute to workplace safety. The color code guide can be easily posted in a central location that is visible to all employees. If the information is up front and in the face of employees every day, the more apt your business will succeed and become accident free.
A plant manager and safety coordinator commented, “We found the guide to be very helpful and easy to read and understand. It makes sense to follow the guide to make sure we were in compliance with OSHA floor marking standards.”
