Health and Safety in Factories and Warehouses
Meeting health and safety requirements in factories and warehouses can be challenging. When a site operates machinery, has forklifts and moving vehicles, plus employees on the floor there is potential for major injuries to occur. Measures to minimise the risk of injury from falling objects; slips, trips and falls and moving vehicles, need to be implemented. And of course fire safety also needs to be considered.
However, with the correct safety procedures in place, clear fire safety signs and health and safety line markings, you can minimise risk and help to keep everyone safe.
HSE has a wealth of information on how to keep the workplace safe, including this guide to workplace transport safety for employers.
Did you know that every year approximately 50 people are killed and 5,000 more are injured in accidents involving workplace transport?

Fire safety marking and signage
Having the correct signage in place that is clear to see and easy to understand can be the difference between life and death. Fire safety is a massive part of warehouse health and safety, clearly marked fire escapes and fire safety signage are vital for minimising risk of injury or death in the event of a fire.
Our customers and clients usually know the health and safety line markings they want to have installed or refreshed, and we often make recommendations during site visits or when we are discussing line marking work.
