Creative Safety Supply Is Now Offering a Free Floor Marking Guide to Help In Compliance With OSHA and ANSI Safety Standards

Press release date: September 21, 2012

OSHA and ANSI require certain floor marking standards to comply with safety standards. Creative Safety Supply is considered the number one leader in the nation as a supplier of safety products and they are strong advocates for providing the best products to make any facility a more efficient and productive environment. A free floor marking guide is free through Creative Safety Supply. This guide will provide everything that a business would need to know about properly marking floors in the warehouses or facility. Safety in the workplace should be considered the top priority of any business owner. Insurance costs and unnecessary accidents can be significantly lowered when proper safety plans are put into place. The guide will help with implementing a new 5S program and will give guidance with re-marking floors. As one new business owner commented, " The free floor marking guide we received from Creative Safety Supply was instrumental in implementing our 5S program. It gave us all the information we needed." OSHA regulations require permanent aisles and passageways be marked with ANSI Z535.2 Yellow as the caution color. By marking possible hazard areas with Yellow floor tape will reduce the possibility of stumbling, falling or tripping. Marking tapes is highly recognized at the most convenient and inexpensive way to mark aisles since painted lines will eventually chip, peel and crack over time especially in heavy traffic. Another OSHA requirement for aisles and passageways is that "sufficient safe clearances" must be provided where mechanical equipment is used. The width requirement is dependent on how the aisle is utilized. Forklift and truck traffic aisles need to be wider than pedestrian traffic. OSHA requires minimum tape width to be 2 inches. Typical applications use tape widths 2 inches to 6 inches.
