Brady Corporation has released a floor marking guide that offers tips for effective floor marking, a floor marking colour code suggestion and includes information on quality floor marking solutions as well as a number of product selection criteria
Floor marking can help to increase workplace safety, efficiency and compliance.
Separated traffic lanes for pedestrians and forklifts or light vehicles will reduce workplace accidents or near misses, will increase workplace compliance with regulations and may positively affect working efficiency.
Clearly marked areas for pallets, raw materials, finished goods and scrapped goods can further enhance productivity, as long as the colour coding stays clear for all relevant workers.
A solution for all traffic levels
Depending on a floor's traffic level, Brady offers three types of reliable, colour codable floor marking tapes. The vinyl tape is good for temporary use in light traffic areas, and ideal during lean or Kaizen events.
The ToughStripe tape, made out of polyester, is better suited for more permanent application in medium traffic areas with pedestrians and light vehicles. Brady's newest tape, ToughStripe Max, is designed for areas with heavier traffic and forklifts.
Safer pedestrians, efficient vehicles
Clearly marked floors are a practical solution to keep pedestrian and vehicle traffic separated in warehouses or logistical areas. Just like traffic lanes on public roads, they help to increase safety and efficiency for all users. Co-workers on foot can immediately see where they can walk safely, while vehicle efficiency can be increased within their dedicated traffic zones.
Floor marking supports compliance with the EU Directive 92/58/EEC, which mentions that employers shall provide safety and or health signs where needed. Annex V of the Directive, on the minimum requirements governing signs used for obstacles and dangerous locations, and for marking of traffic routes, further includes that traffic routes for vehicles must be clearly identified by continuous stripes in a clearly visible colour if required for the protection of workers.
