Employee safety is critical, so as you return to operations COVID-19 is another aspect rather than a new idea. In addition to marking off traffic lanes and hazard areas you can use 3M Floor and Safety Marking Tapes to quickly and easily provide a visual cue that helps everyone remember to stay socially distanced. If you need to change a layout these tapes remove quickly and cleanly.
At 3M we’re committed to employee safety, and marking floors for social distancing is part of that commitment. The examples below are from 3M manufacturing facilities.
Use the right tape for the job. Whether you need an ultra-tough tape to stand up to heavy forklift traffic or a more everyday version for walking areas and hazard marking, we have the product you need in a variety of colors. All of our floor and safety marking tapes are easy to apply so you can mark areas quickly.
Use Colors to Distinguish Functions
