Whether in an office, a garage, or a warehouse, disorganization tends to create a cluttered, unsafe environment. Warehouse floor striping can help you bring order to chaos, enhance safety, and boost productivity.
How Does Warehouse Floor Striping Help Restore Order?
The old saying about having a place for everything and putting everything in its place certainly applies to warehouses. Whether they are office personnel, forklift operators, or pickers, people need the ability to quickly locate any item in the warehouse. Floor striping can provide them with virtually instantaneous directions to guide them. If sales associates need to verify an item’s inventory level, they can do so quickly without having to move other items. Warehouse striping can also improve the flow of both forklift and pedestrian traffic to help avoid unpleasant surprises.
How Does Warehouse Floor Line Striping Help Enhance Safety?
Consider the chaos that a total absence of parking lot striping can generate. No one knows in what direction they should travel, where they should park, or other pertinent details necessary to navigate the lot safely. Drivers may bump into other vehicles, poles, or even pedestrians. A similar situation can occur in a warehouse without floor striping. Commercial striping clearly shows pedestrians where they are safest, and it also shows forklift drivers areas requiring extreme caution.
How Does Warehouse Floor Striping Help Improve Productivity?
Professional striping for your warehouse can boost the efficiency of your operation, but efficiency alone does not guarantee productivity. Productivity is the result of a combination of elements, including efficiency. However, you should not underestimate the role that employee morale plays in productivity. If workers must spend an inordinate amount of time searching for what they need, momentary annoyance can turn into frustration. If employees do not believe that management takes workplace safety seriously, morale can plummet. Conversely, employees who feel that management values their time, safety, and comfort tend to be more productive of their own free will.
Why Is a Lot Striping Contractor a Good Choice for Warehouse Striping?
There are many more similarities between parking lot striping and floor striping than there are differences. Both types of commercial striping projects require contractors to be knowledgeable about paint types, pavement preparation, and paint applications. Both types of projects require crisp, neat, straight lines, and both can require contractors to understand how to apply markings correctly. Furthermore, both types of projects require contractors to be knowledgeable about relevant OSHA and ADA regulations. Therefore, it makes perfect sense to hire a reputable lot striping contractor to stripe your warehouse floor.
