Why Does Safety Painting Need to be Part of Your Property Maintenance Strategy?
When we talk about our commercial and industrial painting services, it’s often in the context of working closely with property owners and managers, meeting tight deadlines, painting new and existing spaces, and more. Our work offers value, surface protection, and is directly tied to our client’s overarching property maintenance goals.
There’s another tangible benefit to painting, however, that can be overlooked but is perhaps most valuable of all.
Painting for the sake of safety.
What to Know About Workplace Safety for Painting
Protecting Your Team and Assets with Safety Painting
We know that keeping your team as safe as possible is one of your top priorities.
Painting potential hazards with bright, bold colors is an easy way to make sure they can be quickly identified and avoided. These dangers can include:
- Running equipment
- Pinch points
- Tripping hazards
- Overhead obstructions
- …and more
Besides staying true to your commitment to protecting those you employ, clearly marking hazards can help you avoid expenses related to preventable workplace injuries.
How Can Safety Painting Create a More Efficient Work Environment?
Safety and organization often go hand-in-hand. If your work environment is busy and combines the movement of foot traffic and machinery, keeping the flow organized and clearly marked is crucial.
Here are a few safety-related painting tips you might want (and need!) to consider:
- Pedestrian Walkways — Just like traffic in an intersection needs to be guided, lines that designate where to walk in your busy facility are a must-have.
- Bin Marking — Whether it’s a bedroom closet or a massive warehouse, it’s universally true that staying organized is the best way to utilize a space to its full potential. Bin marking is a wonderful tool for keeping your equipment, containers, and storage accessible and maximized.
- Color-Coding Your Piping — To maintain OSHA-compliance, color-coding the pipes in your facility for quick identification is important.
Machinery painting and industrial cleaning are two more examples of how to keep your investments looking their best and operating in a safe, efficient way. Removing built up oil, grease, and other residue allows you to more easily maintain and repair as needed. And, as an added benefit, it looks fantastic!
