Keep your workers safe with line demarcation

Safety at work is paramount, both for employees and customers and ensuring people are aware of the boundaries between pedestrians and vehicles is one of the main reasons for line demarcation. 

Walkways and parking bays, storage areas and keep clear zones, visitor areas and safe fire exits all require sufficient line demarcation to reduce potential injury to people and ensure your business is following industry-specific health and safety laws.

The Workplace (Health, Safety & Welfare) Regulations 1992 states that:

Every workplace shall be organised in such a way that pedestrians and vehicles can circulate in a safe manner.

All traffic routes shall be suitably indicated where necessary for reasons of health and safety.

https://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/1992/3004/regulation/17/made

By law, pedestrians and vehicles should be able to use traffic routes without causing any danger to their health and safety. 

Designing your floor demarcation in such a way that vehicles and people are kept separate and their safety is not compromised is key to your workplace’s health and safety compliance.

Clear demarcation of safe areas means you can safely organise your workplace and reduce the risk of accidents and injury, and comply with health and safety laws.

Line marking will zone areas to allocate space for vehicles, mark ‘Keep Clear’ zones and maintain space between people and vehicles, machinery or hazardous chemicals.

What do we suggest?

We suggest using epoxy resin in contrasting colours.  Why? Because resin line marking systems are far more durable and cost-effective than tape which lifts easily. 

In our experience, the most commonly installed resin colours are yellow, white and red.  These colours must remain bright and effective. 

Our preferred products are tough and scratch-resistant and offer safety and durability.  For example, Sherwin Williams Elladur™, is innovative in design and will give you the best performance, no matter what your industry.
