Create a visual workplace with facility and floor marking products
Visual Workplace is a lean concept that emphasizes putting critical information at the point of use. Companies that incorporate lean visuals throughout their facility are proven to have higher productivity, reduced waste, and improved safety. Visuals can be something as simple as a line, shape or color band - whatever employees can understand at a glance. Or visuals can include signs, labels, displays and more. OSHA - Use of Mechanical Equipment 1910.176(a) Where mechanical handling equipment is used, sufficient safe clearances shall be allowed for aisles, at loading docks, through doorways and wherever turns or passage must be made.

The lines may be composed of dots, square, strip or continuous. The recommended width of aisle markings varies from 2 in. to 6 in., therefore any width 2 in. or more is considered acceptable.
