Resources for Effective Floor Marking

Floor markings increase the level of safety in the workplace by providing people with visual cues for how to behave. Floor tape can outline aisles and walkways, floor signs can alert people to the presence of a hazard, and shapes such as T’s, X’s, and corners can keep equipment and materials where they belong. A floor marking system helps employees navigate their jobs without needing to ask many questions because the visual markings provide them much of what they need to know. OSHA does not have many specific regulations concerning floor marking, but the organization does state that aisles should be marked. Best practices also exist for choosing the colors, patterns, and types of floor tape, and it’s worth learning about these guidelines to facilitate clear communication in your workplace.
