Why use 5S Floor Marking Symbol Door Safety Arcs?
It’s hard to believe that something as simple as a 5S Floor Marking Symbol Door Safety Arcs could help improve safety and product mishaps.
At a chemical company a technician was carrying a glass 5-gallon carboy of a very expensive chemical. She was standing by a door. Consequently the door suddenly swung open and sent the container crashing to the ground and spilling all the contents. As a result, over $10,000 of chemicals spilled on the floor. Because of the glass it had to be carefully cleaned up. The spill of this important ingredient caused a delay in the process and multiple late shipments.
At a warehouse, the supervisor stopped one of his employees as he came out of the office to ask him a quick question. Right then, another employee came barreling through the door and knocked the other employee to the concrete causing a shoulder injury – not on purpose, an accident of course. The injured employee had to go to the hospital and was out of work for a couple of weeks. He also was on light duty when he came back.
Both examples illustrate that this could have been easily avoided with simple, visual floor markings like door arcs.
