Safety flooring is an important factor when running your business from a warehouse or similar location. It can be the difference between your staff members going home safe at the end of each day and dealing with an accident that could have been prevented.
Safety flooring is often applied to factory, warehouse and plant floors, allowing business owners to create and install health and safety walkways, exclusion zones, line marking and complete floor coating, allowing for a safe and clean workplace. One benefit to choosing well known safety flooring options is that employees and visitors can instantly recognise walkways and areas of caution.
Choosing the Right Floor Coating
Before installing safety flooring in your workplace, you will need to consider the type of floor coating you have or need.
Concrete coatings are a popular option in Perth and can be done with both epoxy and polyurethane coatings. Non-slip coating for concrete are a good way to improve slip resistance and safety in both wet and dry conditions. If you have vehicles moving in and out of your warehouse in all types of weather, non-slip coatings are essential.
Colour Coding Safety Flooring
When installing safety flooring, it is important to make sure the colours you use are uniform across your entire workplace, as well as uniform with other sites your staff may work at.
Tips when Undertaking Safety Floor Installations
Installing safety flooring in your warehouse or factory can take some planning. Apart from choosing the correct floor coating for your business, you also need to be aware of what colours will be used to mark out various areas of the floor, as well as the layout of the warehouse. The last thing you want is to install your safety floor markings, only to realise that the layout isn’t working for a growing business.
