If you're a seasoned Podcast Listener - this podcast is going to be different from most you listen to.  It's based around exactly what the name implies - Warehouse Safety Tips.  And since the people in that industry are busy - we know time is money, so each episode will be as short and to the point as possible.

And now that all that is out of the way - let's get to the Podcast!

With Thanksgiving and Christmas approaching - we're entering into a couple of the busiest maintenance times of the year.

One of the maintenance tasks done during these times is applying and/or updating floor markings.

Although there are several options out there, two remain the most popular - Paint and Tape.

Just to give you a straight up Spoiler Alert - this Podcast weighs very heavy on the side of Tape Versus Paint - and here are just a few of the reasons.

Assuming you've picked an Adhesive Tape that's designed for Heavy Industrial Use - they:

  • Installs quickly.  Some even remove just as fast - and without residue.  Paint doesn't go down and/or come up quickly.
  • Is beveled to increase the durability against industrial brush scrubbers, forklifts, and heavy industrial wheel traffic. 
  • Has NO dry time (Unlike paint)
  • Installation requires VERY little production down time in your facility.
  • Can have a strip or chevron pattern (Doing this with paint is extremely difficult and time consuming).

We're open to debate on the subject - but feel the above mentioned benefits make for an obvious winner.

Regardless of what you choose - be sure to do everything you can to make your facility as safe and productive as possible.

Before moving on - here's a word from one of our sponsors.
