Car Park Safety in Your Warehouse
For many warehouses, safety guidelines are evident in all areas of operation, with a focus on industrial traffic and pedestrian safety both in and out of your warehouse. But stopping there isn’t good enough; as a business owner, you need to ensure that all areas of your site are safe for pedestrians, from your car park to your mezzanine floor Sydney wide, your Sydney or Australian based warehouse should have clear safety measures in place in all areas.
Today we’ll be going over the safety procedures and equipment you can install in your car park to create a safe area for all pedestrians and drivers.
The most simple yet effective strategy you can use in your carpark is line marking. Ensuring you have clear markings throughout the car park means vehicles can navigate the space safely. These markers work to direct traffic, allocate spaces, and ensure everything flows and fits with all the proper markings.
While vehicles aren’t usually hitting the highest speeds in car parks, you can never be too safe. Speed humps are the easiest and most effective way to combat risky drivers. With pedestrians and especially children walking in and around cars, drivers must stay at low speeds. You can’t control every driver, but speed humps allow you to have better control over the speeds they can reach in your car park. Speed humps aren’t all the same; there’s different shapes, styles, sizes, and materials, so you can choose exactly what’s suitable for your job.
There’s a variety of colours and materials you can pick from when it comes to wheel stops, but it’s essential to keep a few things in mind when choosing. First and foremost, visibility. Drivers should be able to see the barriers. Choosing bright, high vis, colourful barriers mean that drivers have the chance to stop or slow down before they reach them, even when parking spaces are dark or dimly lit. When it comes to materials, if you need stops that will stand the test of time, concrete is the most durable material to work with. Rubber also provides a more eco-friendly solution and comes in a range of styles and colours.
Mirrors are a great way to go that extra mile, increasing visibility and encouraging safety for drivers and pedestrians. Make it easier for drivers to be safe with mirrors around your lot. From convex to concave, big to small, there’s plenty to choose from. They can also provide extra visibility for any delivery drivers that may not know your car park as well as your employees, it can mean the difference between a damaged wall or docking station.At Ware Safety, we offer a range of safety barriers and warehouse safety solutions to ensure your business can continue to thrive both in-store and behind the scenes.
