4 Ways to Maximize Forklift Safety Through Effective Warehouse Floor Marking

Running a warehouse comes with a certain degree of liability. Forklift accidents happen, even when proper precautions are taken. However, that doesn’t mean that you need to assume that risk without doing anything about it. 

Adding floor markings to your Windsor warehouse helps streamline traffic, both on foot and on forklifts, and directs people to where they should be. Separating out traffic like this, as well as establishing a flow within your workplace, helps reduce the likelihood of forklift accidents by keeping people in predictable places. Even better, this typically helps boost productivity as well.

4 Safety Benefits of Warehouse Floor Markings

1. Establish Permanent Pathways

Ensuring people have set aisles and pathways to stick to based on whether they are on foot or a forklift keeps people safe by promoting organization and order. Clearly marking safe areas for walking reduces the risk of pedestrians finding themselves injured or having a collision with machinery. 

2. Create Visible Cues for Workers

Visible cues for workers help remind them how to remain safe without having to commit the entire floor plan to memory. When the floors outline clear workstations, traffic areas and directions for flow of traffic, workers can remain where they’re safe. 

3. Reduce Workplace Accidents

While not all forklift accidents are entirely avoidable, it is possible to reduce the likelihood of them occurring by keeping workers in set locations during certain tasks. Proper floor marking conveys where people should and shouldn’t be, improving the safety for everyone.

4. Optimize Onboarding and Training

Bringing on new team members is an investment in and of itself with training and familiarizing new employees with their workplace. Color-coding your warehouse with floor markings improves efficiency when onboarding while also reducing the chance of an accident by providing clear, visible direction that’s available 24/7 as opposed to providing a round of training and expecting the employee to remember it all. By streamlining the onboarding process, you can improve productivity and safety with one change to your Windsor warehouse.
