A facility’s floor is its heart, and floor marking is what enables its workflow to pump through it freely.
Whether you’re starting from scratch or adjusting an already existing plan, we have three quick questions that can help you get the most from floor marking.
- Are Your Floors OSHA Compliant?
- Is Your Floor Marking Clear?
- Can You Customize?
Are your floors OSHA compliant? It all starts here. The most important piece of your safety plan and your floor marking is compliance. OSHA’s standards are the starting place, but they should just be the beginning. Our free Floor Marking Guide can get you compliant, quick.
Is your floor marking clear? They can’t follow it if it’s not understandable. Whether you’re starting from scratch and building a plan from the ground up, or auditing an existing system, keeping communication clear and visible is a must. Take a look at our floor marking article for basic how-tos.
Can you customize? Your workplace has specific needs that benefit from the ability to customize communication. Customization equals clearer communication; your facility has its own terms, its own guidelines that your workers recognize. It has unique hazards that need special warnings. Pre-printed labels and signs only go so far; customizing safety communication with the language of your worksite ensures that workers know what to do.
What type of tape? Having a strong floor marking system in place is just the first step; the supply you use is just as crucial to success. Tape that can stand up to heavy traffic and maintain high visibility is key to getting the most out of your floor marking.
Consider tape that is:
- Heavy Duty.
Materials made for your facility’s conditions make a huge difference in your floor marking system’s helpfulness.
