The Importance of Factory Line Marking
Have you ever worked at a factory, warehouse, or manufacturing plant?
If not, then have you ever been to one? If you have, then you probably noticed those white lines drawn all over the factory floor. They are not there for aesthetic purposes, they are relevant in ensuring efficient workflow and safety for the entire factory.
Those lines are called factory line marking and they are necessary for a factory’s traffic management plan for many reasons including:
- To establish an organised path flow and parking for employees and vehicles within the warehouse.
- To guide vehicles when handling stock arrangements, stocking and/or distribution. In short, saves the factory money from damages.
- To remind workers or visitors of hazardous workspace areas that may result in minor to severe injuries.
- To allocate space and/or pathways for heavy equipment, machinery and supplies needed for the factory’s daily operation. In connection with this, to allocate space for safe areas.
- To comply with and satisfy Australian line marking rules and standards.
