Why use 5S Floor Marking Symbol Footprints?
There are two good reasons to use 5S Floor Marking Symbol Footprints: safety and direction.
While visiting a busy 400,000 square foot warehouse it was apparent that there could be safety issues with the forklifts flying around picking up and delivering product. It just felt unsafe. The safety team placed yellow footprints to show where people should walk. This was also an indicator for the forklift drivers of where not to drive.
In a medical office building, it was confusing for new patients to know where to go. A 5S team suggested that they use different color-coded footprints to show the direction and the path to get to certain departments and offices. The first place they used it was for pediatrics. The footprints started from the elevator to the office. The fun part was that children thought is was a game and would step on the footprints to walk to the door. This made it fun for the kids to see the doctor. The added benefit is was higher patient satisfaction because they could find the right department on their own. The staff also liked it because they didn’t get stopped as often to be asked for directions.
Bonus for the TSA: these footprints are perfect for TSA use in airports. They can show the direction of where to walk or stand. Combine with 5S Floor Marking – Arrows to complete the visual effect and direct travelers.
5S Floor Marking Symbol Footprints are a simple, low cost solution to help with safety, customer satisfaction and productivity.
