How Can Floor Markings Improve Safety?

Statistics from the UK's Health and Safety Executive (HSE) show that slips, trips and falls are among the most common workplace accidents. The injuries that can result from these accidents range from minor to severe, and this is especially frustrating because businesses can minimise the risk of this type of incident by following suitable health and safety protocols.

Trips can often be prevented through the use of floor markings, and in fact, are not the only type of accident that can be avoided in this way. Collisions between pedestrians and vehicle traffic are among the most common accidents that result in fatalities in the UK, but employers can significantly reduce the risk of an incident using floor tape to demarcate safe areas and pedestrian walkways.

In some industries, floor marking tape is a legal requirement, while in others it is simply best practice to use it. Here, the workplace safety experts at SafetyBuyer explain how floor marking tapes reduce the risk of accidents, and how you can use them to avoid some of the most common incidents and injuries.

The Most Common Safety Signs and Their Meanings

As an employer, you must understand safety signs and their meanings so that you can appropriately use the correct safety signs in the workplace. Safety signs come in four distinct colours, and each indicates a different warning or precaution. 

Blue safety signs are mandatory signs that explain a specific action. Yellow safety signs are warning or caution signs. Red safety signs usually indicate danger or prohibition of a certain substance or act. Green signs are not designed to highlight danger, and instead indicate helpful information and safe points, such as fire exits or first aid points. 

Using the correct safety sign as an employer is a legal requirement, and it is therefore essential to understand safety signs and their meanings in order to ensure your workplace is kept safe.
